FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What kind of Services do you offer?

Our Services are set up in a style that everyone (regardless of background or
affiliation, be it reform, conservative, orthodox or unaffiliated) should be
able to participate in an environment that is warm, super friendly and
non-judgmental.

Do I need to become a member to join the Services?

There is no requirement to become a member for you to join our services,
neither do we charge for seats. However, we do appreciate and encourage
contributions, made by those benefiting from our services and programs.

Will I be able to follow the entire Service if I am slow at reading Hebrew or unable to read Hebrew at all?

The services are conducted in both Hebrew and English and the page numbers are
continuously announced throughout the services, allowing everyone to know where
we are holding. Our prayer books have both Hebrew and English as well as
transliteration for all the parts of the services that are sung or read in
unison which allows everyone to pray in the language they feel most comfortable
and to participate and feel at home.

Do I need to bring a head covering, talit or prayer book?

We will provide all our congregants with all the provisions necessary. If you
would like to bring your own head covering or Talit you may feel free to do so.

What kind of program will you provide for my children?

Our children are provided with a special program run by experienced teachers
that will allow them to participate and enjoy a service of their own. The
children will join the adults for the Shofar blowing. These
programs will also allow the parents the ability to participate in the services
without have to tend to the needs of their young children.

Will my children be provided with a snack?

The children will be provided with a variety of snacks, so no need to bring a
snack of your own. If your child is on a strict diet or has allergies, we
encourage you to bring a snack along (kindly inform the teachers at the program
of any allergies your child may have).

I have a fear of Services being long and boring? Will the Services at The Shul be the same?

Absolutely not! Throughout the services the meaning and background of many of
the prayers will be presented as well as many famous Jewish melodies will be
included into the prayers, making our services interactive, entertaining and
educational.


If you have any further questions please feel free to contact us and we will be more than glad to answer them.
