Please follow the link above to watch our presentation of “Heal Us Now” on Shabbat Shira, January 27, 2024. This beautiful prayer was composed by Cantor Leon Scher. The combined choirs and musicians of Temple Beth Shalom and Monroe Temple Beth-El were led by Charyl Kain on the piano for this selection.
Members of the choir/musicians are: Sharon Ball, Wendy Cedar, Gail Conklin, Scott Dunn, Elizabeth Frederick, Gail Green, Jon Gottlieb, Andy Hannes, Charlene Hirschberg, Eleonora Horn, Robin Rosenberg, Bob Rubin, Nina Rubin and David Schiff.
All are welcome to join our Temple Beth Shalom community in fellowship and worship. Rabbi Rebecca Shinder leads services in prayer, study, and song with Mishkan Tefilla for Shabbat and Mishkan HaNesh for the High Holidays. In order to include worshippers whose Hebrew is a bit rusty, as well as those who have had no exposure to Judaism at all, these books provide both English transliterations, as well as translations of Hebrew prayers.
Follow this link to register for services.
Erev Shabbat Services take place every Friday at 7:00pm. Our worship is enhanced by the voice and guitar playing of Rabbi Shinder and the piano played weekly by our congregant, Dr. Andy Hannes. Additional music is offered by our Adult Choir, Chaverim B’Shirim under the direction and acoustic guitar of our High Holiday Chazzan, Scott Dunn. More uplifting music is offered on the flute for Kol Nidrei by our congregant, Lore Hannes. See the video below for our choir’s rendition of “Turn, Turn, Turn”
Children are encouraged to attend our family friendly services. In fact, they are featured in our Torah Service when Rabbi Shinder invites them to the bimah to hold their own stuffed Torah to carry around the sanctuary for the Hakafah (Torah Processional).
Children in our Hebrew School are required to attend services throughout the year and even join together to lead a grade service in the Spring.
Please check our calendar for monthly informal Saturday morning Shabbat Learning Experiences and B’nei Mitzvah Services all beginning at 10:00 am.
We encourage you to join us. Neither tickets nor initial temple membership are ever required in order to share a Shabbat or Yontif with us.
