Our Saturday morning service will begin at 10 and last approximately two hours. Rabbi Daniel Judson will be officiating and Noa will be leading many parts of the service and reading Torah. Please try to arrive at the chapel five to ten minutes early so that you can greet loved ones and friends before the service begins.
Small children are warmly welcomed! Because the service is not short, if you are attending with little ones you may find it helpful to sit on the end of an aisle so that you can get leave the sanctuary for a break in the event of fussiness or restlessness. There is ample outdoor space for children to run around under your supervision (though please be mindful that there are many windows in the chapel that look out onto the green); there will be toys and books for young kids available on the lower level of the chapel.
You can expect to see a range of attire from very dressy to “business casual.” Although many women will be wearing skirts or dresses and many men will be wearing suits, some people will be dressed more casually (eg: khakis and button downs). Wear what makes you feel festive and comfortable, keeping in mind that this is a religious service.
Many men and women cover their heads during services; there will be kippot (skull caps) available. If you customarily wear a tallit (prayer shawl), please bring your tallit from home.
All food served at the event will be provided by kosher caterers and there will be many vegetarian options. If you have a food allergy that we should know about, please send us a note when you RSVP.
Please remember to turn off your cell phone before entering the chapel and refrain from texting, checking email or using other electronics in the sanctuary during the service.
