Service Structure & Attire

Our Shabbat worship service is designed to honor the Most High G-d through Liturgical Torah service (traditional Hebrew liturgy with transliteration in English and Spanish), Public Reading from the Scriptures (Torah, Haftara, and Brit Chadashah), Praise and Worship and concludes with a drash (sermon) typically focusing on life application and lessons to take home that will help us integrate into our daily life in practical life changing ways.

Out of respect for Shabbat, and according to Scripture, we request everyone dress modesty. No mini skirts, tank tops, shorts or flip flops.Some men wear a kippah or yarmaluke (head covering) and some may wear a tallit (prayer shawl) with tzizit (fringes), as a reminder described in Numbers 15:37-41 to observe G-d’s mitzvoth (commandments). Tzizit and Tallit worn by men should be in keeping with acceptable Jewish customs. The tradition is that women are exempt from wearing a tallit or tzizit, though she may wear a head covering if she chooses. No one is forced to wear a tallit or a kippa.
