At The New Shul, we believe in the power of traditional Hebrew prayer to raise us up spiritually. The depth and resonance of the language make it a powerful tool to unlock religious feelings, even for those who are not proficient in it. Our style of worship is “traditional-egalitarian,” meaning that we use an Orthodox prayer book (Hasidic Nusah S’fard), but there is no separation of the sexes, and women participate as equals with men. We use song – sometimes without words – to infuse our prayers with joyful energy, drawing heavily on the melodies of Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach.
Shabbat services at The New Shul are on Friday evenings from 6 to 7 pm, and on Saturday mornings from 9 to noon. Shabbat morning is our main gathering time during the week, with the largest attendance. Our Shabbat morning service is followed by a Kiddush-lunch, to which everyone is invited.
Weekday services at The New Shul are on Sunday mornings at 9:30 am and on Wednesday mornings at 7 am.
