This Shabbat the Torah portion is Pinchas.

“A generation goes and a generation comes,” said Kohelet (Ecclesiastes), and that is exactly what we are witnessing in the meteoric rise of Pinchas, the history- making appeal of the daughters of Tzelofchad, and the appointment of Yehoshua bin Nun (Joshua) to lead Israel into the promised land.

The generation of the desert, led and fed by G-d, with the help of Moshe, Aharon and Miriam, has given way to the generation of the land of Israel, whose new leaders will give voice and expression to His will.

This week’s service will use the Reform siddur (prayer book) and some new melodies. Services begin at 10:30 and go to 12 noon.


Here is the schedule of services (C) Conservative and (R) Reform for the rest of the year. Please note: for all of our High Holy Day services this year,we will be using the Conservative Machzor Lev Shalem.
