WE WORSHIP IN OUR NEWLY RENOVATED, BEAUTIFUL SANCTUARY……
Our services are held at 7p.m. each Friday. We use the Silverman Siddur three times a month, and a new prayer book with transliterations for the First Friday Family Service. Cantor Michal leads both the service and the singing, sometimes with guitar. Please check the Calendar for exact dates. An Oneg follows most services. To sponsor an Oneg, please E-mail Shirley Grossman or call her at 724-287-1544.
FIRST FRIDAYS FAMILY SERVICES
The first Friday Shabbat Service of each month engages our Religious School students as active participants. An Oneg, sponsored by Religious School parents, will always follow the service. Cantor Michal offers lively melodies and plays her guitar. We hope that you will join us for this engaging service!
AS ALWAYS, WE HOPE TO SEE YOU IN SHUL……
