Service Times

In an effort to prevent the spread of COVID-19, the Temple Israel Building is CLOSED.
Daily morning services, Kabbalat Shabbat and Havdalah are being held via ZOOM.

We will be live streaming Shabbat services.

Daily Minyan

minyan is the foundation of a spiritual community.   Services require a “minyan” (a quorum of 10 adults), and thus we welcome all members of the community and their attendance is cherished. If you are unable to attend a service due to illness or other circumstance, our daily morning minyan is held via ZOOM

The minyan supports those in need of reciting Kaddish on the anniversary of a death or during the 11 months of mourning after a close relative has passed away. But it’s much more than that. The morning minyan is a way to start the day off on the right foot with prayer time for introspection. Morning minyan also provides valuable time to bond with other members of the congregation and the clergy on a more personal level (currently not being held due to our building being closed due to COVID-19).

Minyan is held in the Goodman Chapel at

  • 7:30 a.m. Monday-Friday (currently via ZOOM)
  • 8:30 a.m. on Sunday. We have been warmly invited to join with Congregation Agudat Achim of Schenectady, NY for Sunday morning minyan. And we will be welcoming them to our Wednesday morning minyan.


For thousands of years, Shabbat has offered the Jewish People the opportunity to come together as a community to reconnect with ourselves, our tradition, and each other. Please join us.
