Worship

At Congregation Shearith Israel, our services are designed to be open and welcoming to individuals of all backgrounds, and of all ages. No matter how little or extensive your knowledge of Hebrew or Judaism in general, our shul can be the place for you! Our services are both traditional and informal, creating a warm vibe of comfortability - and comfort! 

Do you know how to lead services or leyn Torah?  Fantastic! We would love to have you sign up to help lead our egalitarian services with the Ashkenazi tunes of our ancestors. Have you always wanted to learn to read Torah but haven’t been up to the bimah since your bar or bat mitzvah?  Wonderful, we have plenty of members who would love to teach you in a variety of settings!   

To put it simply, at Shearith Israel it is our mission to make YOU feel comfortable within our walls. We feel that one of the ways to achieve this is through active participation in services! So, we invite you to reach out to us and sign up to find out more and join our kehilah!  

Above all else, at CSI we aim to present a variety of ways to worship - all having the same purpose: To engage and connect spiritually. In addition to the traditional approaches to worship, we offer a more musical prayer option, led on Shabbat mornings by our own CSI Spiritual Music Innovator. It’s a family-friendly way to engage spiritually while also connecting socially with CSI friends!

The Details

  • Daily minyanim (services) are held every morning and evening, year round, at Shearith Israel. Please check out our full calendar for the most updated information, since times vary by season!
  • Weekly Saturday morning Shabbat services begin at 9am.
  • Kiddush is Back!! We are resuming our delicious Shabbat Kiddush, at approximately 12pm. For now, Kiddush will be held outdoors until it is safe to be indoors.
  • While all of our services are family-friendly, we offer a full array of youth and family Shabbat services, including Minyan Shelanu (‘our service’) - a casual service held for school-aged children and their families at 10:30am outside in the Courtyard. 
  • For those in mourning, evening shiva minyanim are arranged in homes, as required. Please email Rabbi Kaiman at rabbikaiman@shearithisrael.com to arrange.

As we reemerge from the COVID-19 pandemic, we all want to return to in-person services! We are also mindful of increasing numbers and the need to be vigilant and safe. 

Our Shabbat services will now be live-streamed (after August 7, 2021)

Daily Minyan will continue both in-person and on Zoom

Please note that we will count those participating in Zoom services as part of a minyan, or prayer quorum, allowing members to recite full prayer services including Mourner's Kaddish.

Based on the latest CDC guidance, we are asking all people to wear masks for all indoor gatherings at Shearith Israel.
