Shabbat Services

You’ll hear Tehillah before walking in the door.  A vibrant intimate community, we encourage active singing, co-leading, and davening with our Rabbi. This is the synagogue, the shul, where your voice and your ideas can be heard.  Don’t worry about what to wear.  Simply bring the prayer in your heart and a willingness to share from your soul. From Orthodox to Reconstructionist / Renewal and everything in between, all are welcome at Tehillah, a synagogue that transcends denominational categories.
