The New Shul

Our Services

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.

The New Shul’s Shabbat services are on Friday evenings from 6 to 7 pm, and on Saturday mornings from 9 to about noon. Shabbat morning is our main gathering time during the week, with the largest attendance.  The service  is followed by a kiddush-lunch, to which everyone is invited.

On most Friday evenings, our service is at our rabbis’ home instead of at the shul. If you are visiting, please contact us for the location and directions.

Weekday services at The New Shul are on Sunday mornings at 9:30 am, and Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings at 6:30 pm.

Covid Policy: Since Maricopa County is now in the  “Green Zone” (low Covid risk), masks are optional in our building.
