Honors, Readings, and Aliyot

While many prayers are recited in Hebrew at Shabbat morning services, there are many English readings to allow everyone’s participation. Pulpit honors are accorded equally to men and women. At Shabbat morning services, children are welcome to sit with their parents or to attend regularly scheduled Junior Congregation services.

Members desiring an aliyah or other honor at the Shabbat morning service (to commemorate a Yahrzeit, special birthday, or other milestone) may contact the Temple office. Even when we have a b’nai mitzvah or other special Shabbat, we reserve honors for the congregation.

Temple Decorum

To help you derive the most from our services and to help us maintain our traditions, please observe the proper decorum of our service:

  • Attire in the sanctuary should be modest and appropriate for a house of worship; no strapless, bare shoulder dresses; no torn jeans or pants; no bare midriffs or shorts, etc.

  • Cell phones should be silenced in the sanctuary.Do not enter or leave the sanctuary when the Ark is open or when the rabbi is speaking.

  • All males should wear a kippah (head covering) while in the building; these are available in the rack in the front foyer.

  • Do not take tallit or prayer book into the restroom.

  • Do not smoke anywhere in or near the building.

  • Writing is prohibited on Shabbat and holidays; it’s considered a creative act and thus is not allowed on sanctified days.

  • Refrain from chewing gum in the synagogue building.

  • Pocket-sized hearing amplification devices are available; see an usher or the executive director.

  • Photography is prohibited in the sanctuary during services.
