Prayer & Ritual
“The meaning of Shabbat is to celebrate time rather than space.” Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel
Services and rituals at Temple Kol Ami are spiritual and musical, led in Hebrew and English. It is a communal Shabbat experience where we hear every voice.
We honor the traditions of the past while embracing the melodies of the current times. We welcome everyone in person and joining us in our online community.
Temple Kol Ami welcomes families and singles, interfaith families, the LGBTQ community, and Jews by Choice.
Friday night services begin at 6:00pm with the third Friday of the month at 7:30pm.
Services are led by our clergy with guitar and piano. We offer an array of services to enhance the shabbat experience with band, choir, Shabbat outside, in the round and Shabbat with our temple affiliates.
Shabbat morning services begin at 11:00am in our chapel unless we have a B’nai Mitzvah. Bar or Bat Mitzvah services begin at 10:30 in the sanctuary.
Other Shabbat Services
Throughout the year we have special services where our Religious School participates, as well as Tot Shabbat services for children ages 0-7.
