Worship at Temple Aliyah

                                                                          

Temple Aliyah is an active, participatory congregation, and our worship services provide an opportunity for quiet chanting, lively communal singing, and silent reflection. Our services are egalitarian and traditional within the framework of the Conservative movement. Under the dynamic leadership of Rabbi Carl Perkins, our congregation is continually seeking to deepen its understanding of and engagement in traditional Jewish worship. If you would like to learn more about how you can participate, please contact either Ritual Committee chair Howard Kaufman or Vice-President of Jewish Life David Farbman.

If you wish to learn how to chant or lead any service, contact Howard Kaufman.

Thanks to the generosity of a member of our congregation, a few LARGE PRINT siddurim are available for use. Please speak with an usher if you wish to use one during Shabbat services. 

We also have a limited number of assisted listening devices for congregants and guests who have trouble hearing parts of any of our services in the Sanctuary. If you would like to make use of this technology, please speak to one of our ushers.
