Our daily minyan gathers for morning and evening services currently virtually on zoom. Weekday services are held at 7:30 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. and Sundays at 9:30 a.m. and 6 p.m. On national holidays when the building is closed at 9:30 a.m.
Celebrating Shabbat each week, and gathering for prayer every day, we enjoy marking special personal and family occasions by sharing them with our synagogue family. We also enjoy honoring members of our community with Torah honors as individual expressions of gratitude and belonging. If you would like to receive an aliyah to the Torah or some other synagogue honor during a Shabbat Morning or Daily Minyan service, please be in touch with Judy Simkin in the Rabbinic Office, 410-486-6400 ext. 232. We’ll do our best to provide you a timely Torah honor, subject to each weekly schedule.
At Chizuk Amuno, Shabbat is a day to rejoice in the gift and experiences of our lives, to connect with our synagogue community, not only as an end to the week but also as a beginning to the week ahead.
Kabbalat Shabbat Services are held each Friday evening at 6:00 p.m. virtually. We welcome Shabbat in friendship, with song, and traditional davenen as we come together, taking leave of the busy routine of our week.
Shabbat Morning Services are held virtually currently at 9:30 a.m, where our rabbis and Hazzan lead us in a warm and engaging service of traditional prayer and davenen. Our services include Torah study and the consideration of Jewish values and ideas for our lives and our world. We strive to provide a sacred place for personal prayer and reflection. The service is occasionally enhanced by the participation of our synagogue choir. Each week our service embraces members who come to celebrate individual and family milestones. Most weeks parallel family services for children and adults also virtually.
On all Jewish holidays we come together as a community in celebration and prayer at our festival services. During the High Holy Days, services are traditionally held throughout the synagogue, including services in the Sanctuary, the Krieger Auditorium, the Stulman Auditorium, and family services for young families in the Esterson Auditorium, Hoffberger Chapel, and school Gymnasium. Special programs and religious services are also offered for children and students in preschool through high school. Please stay updated on our website for High Holy Days 5782 due to the COVID-19 Pandemic.
