Friday Night Services

Each Friday night Temple Judea holds Shabbat services. Our Rabbi is amazing; learned, inspiring and humorous.  Our Cantor brings her love of music, Judaism and children to our temple family.

Our Shabbat service is conducted in Hebrew and English and we use the Reform Movement’s newest prayer book, Mishkan T’filah.  Our music is engaging and participatory. A sermon or other opportunity for learning is included each week.  We welcome member participation at each service.

Each service includes a Mi Shebeirach prayer for healing and all present are given an opportunity to speak the names of those who are ill.  All services will start at 7:30 PM (unless otherwise noted).  Temple Judea’s “NEW” Friday Night Service Schedule



“First Fridays”

The First Friday of every month will be a brief Family Friendly
service.  There will not be a formal sermon during this service.
However, during the oneg, Rabbi Chizner will sit at one of the tables
and lead an adult discussion on a contemporary issue 
for all who would like join.
*On a few occasions, our religious school classes will participate
in these services.
**All who are celebrating a wedding anniversary in that month will receive a Blessing near the end of services.


“Traditional Shabbat”

The second Friday of every month will include traditional and familiar melodies.  
*All who are celebrating a birthday in that month will receive a Birthday Blessings near the end of services.


“Mostly Music Shabbat”

The third Friday of every month will include more music and singing and less reading.  Prayer songs will segue
into one another creating an atmosphere of spiritual uplift.


“Kabbalat Shabbat”

The Fourth Friday of every month will focus heavily on the opening
section of the service. This opening section includes familiar mystical songs (like L’cha Dodi and Shalom Aleichem) and psalms that are said to help us to separate from the work week and
enter into the awe of Shabbat.
