Weekly Shabbat and Friday night services, as well as holiday services, are inspiring and meaningful and win the praise of all who attend -- members, guests, visitors or drop-ins from the neighborhood. Services are distinct in their spirited, animated atmosphere and inclusiveness. As an egalitarian synagogue, we invite women to participate equally at all levels of our services.

Our uplifting services are also the venue for Bar/Bat Mizvahs, aufrufs, baby namings and celebration of other life-cycle events. Every service is followed by a Kiddush or Oneg which provides opportunity for socialization and for everyone to experience Oneg Shabbat (delight in Shabbat).

Friday night "Freilach" services  -- musical Kabbalat services, welcome Shabbat in the unique "Nishmat Am" way. Experience a spiritual, uplifting Kabbalat Shabbat service with music, song and dance! Our instrumental ensemble includes talented performers from among Nishmat Am

*During the school year (Sept-May) we have several Family Shabbat services which begins at 7:00 pm.  Members of our religious school participate in this special service for families with children of all ages.  Please check the calendar for dates.
