Prayer Services at Or Atid are warm and highly participatory in the egalitarian Conservative tradition.  Services are led by Rabbi Louis Polisson, with the assistance of the Ritual Committee and many members of the congregation.

Saturday morning Shabbat services

Join us for Shabbat services which are held throughout the year.  Regular services start at 9:30am and are open to all. Additional services are held on all major Jewish holidays. On many occasions the Torah service includes an in-depth Torah study, led by Rabbi Polisson.

Kabbalat Shabbat Friday night services

End your week with a Kabbalat Shabbat casual evening of song and prayer led by Rabbi Polisson.  This short hour-long service features beautiful music and a festive Oneg (delightful treats)! Kabbalat Shabbat services are held once a month throughout the year. See our calendar for Kabbalat Shabbat dates.
