Worship at Shir Tikvah is a living ritual in which our members actively participate, and to which friends and guests are warmly welcomed. At our Reform services we use Mishkan T’filah: A Reform Siddur on Shabbat and festivals, and Mishkan HaNefesh: Machzor for the Days of Awe on the High Holy Days. At our Conservative services we use Siddur Lev Shalem for Shabbat & Festivals, and Machzor Lev Shalem for Rosh HaShanah and Yom Kippur on the High Holidays. Our weekly service schedule is as follows:

Friday Evening:
Reform Kabbalat Shabbat Service 7:30 pm* in the sanctuary
Saturday Morning:
Conservative Shabbat Shacharit Service 9:45am* in the sanctuary.
Reform Shabbat Service 10:15am* in the chapel.

* Please check our calendar for the most up-to-date service information

  • We suggest business-casual attire such as slacks and shirts, skirts, and dresses.
  • While not required in the Reform services, anyone is welcome to wear a kippah, or yarmulke (head-covering) which can be obtained in our foyer. We ask all those who receive a Torah honor during Conservative services to please wear both a kippah and tallit, (prayer-shawl) when coming up to the bimah, from which the Torah is read.

Each month on a Saturday, following Shabbat services, we offer Bible and Bagels, a light lunch and discussion of the weekly Torah Portion. Please check our calendar for the dates of upcoming Bible and Bagels sessions. In addition, speakers, scholars-in-residence, and special occasions will be noted on our calendar. We look forward to seeing you soon!

Visitors are welcome! Please call the office to register for your visit.
