Religious Services

Temple Beth-El Mekor Chayim has a complete schedule of morning and evening religious services for weekdays, Shabbat and holidays. Services are conducted according to the Jewish tradition and enhanced by the modern egalitarian practice as endorsed by the Jewish Conservative movement.

Daily Minyan

We currently have a morning minyan that meets on Torah-reading days:

  • Mondays and Thursdays: 6:50 a.m.
  • Rosh Hodesh, Hol HaMoed: 6:45 a.m.

Our evening minyan meets at the following times:

  • Sunday through Thursday and Legal Holidays: 7:30 p.m.
  • Friday (Kabbalat Shabbat): 7:30 p.m.
  • Check the TBEMC calendar for times of other services throughout the year
  • Jewish Holidays and Fast Days: Please check the TBEMC calendar

Children’s Services

Children are always welcome in the sanctuary but we also have several special programs geared just for kids.

Junior Congregation (For Children 7-13 Years Old)

Junior Congregation begins at 10:15 a.m. every Shabbat morning.  Students will learn how to lead Shabbat morning services in preparation for their Bar/Bat Mitzvah.

Tot Shabbat

For children two through six years old (and their parents), we have Tot Shabbat. This program begins at 10:15 a.m. once a month. During Tot Shabbat we sing songs, read a story related to the weekly Torah reading or holiday and have the opportunity to play with other Jewish children while using toys, games and puzzles with a Judaic theme. It is a youthful way to explore Judaism. Please see the calendar for dates.
