Time of Service

The times of services vary. Please carefully refer to the assignment email that you received and verified in your meetings with clergy. We cannot accommodate a time change due to an invitation error. Please note that our services begin promptly at the designated time.


The correct wording for your *simcha or happy occasion, is that your child is “becoming a bar mitzvah” or you are “celebrating your child becoming a bat mitzvah.” Our staff can help you with the wording for your invitation if you have any questions.

*The word "simcha" means gladness, or joy. It comes from the root word "sameyach," which means glad or happy
