Special Minyanim and Services at Temple Aliyah
Shabbat morning meditation services are offered on a monthly basis from 9:15 am to 10:15 am. These services give participants the opportunity to meditate Jewishly in a small group. The goals are to increase one’s spirituality and kavanah during Shabbat. Following the meditation service, many participants proceed to the sanctuary to join the main service.
During the summer, Shabbat services are held as usual every Saturday morning, beginning at 9:15 in the chapel.
Our Friday evening Minyan Shirah services, normally held at 6:15 pm, are not held during the summer months. They will commence again after Labor Day.
Our Monday morning minyanim are held as usual, beginning at 6:45 am.
Evening minyanim in the summer are held on Tuesdays and Wednesdays only, beginning at 7:30 pm. Sunday morning minyanim are not held during the summer. If you are observing a summer yahrzeit, or are saying kaddish for a loved one, on a day when we don't hold minyan at Temple Aliyah, please see thesummer minyan schedule for other local Conservative shuls. Although this schedule has been confirmed with these shuls, it's always a good idea to call ahead and check, since sometimes schedules change.
In addition, a maariv service as well as a reading of Eicha (Lamentations) is held on Tisha B'Av.
Opportunities for Further Learning
For those wishing to learn more about the Shabbat liturgy, Learners’ Services are periodically offered on Shabbat mornings. These generally finish in time for participants to join the rest of the congregation in the sanctuary for the Rabbi’s sermon and Musaf. From time to time, we also offer classes in Torah cantillation and other aspects of our services. Please inquire in the Temple Office at (781) 444-8522 for more information.
