Please help us respect the sanctity of our Shabbat and Yom Tov (holiday) services by observing the following Synagogue Etiquette (Minhagei HaMakom):
While in the building and on the grounds:
ALL electronic devices including cell phones, iphones and pagers should be turned off or set on silent.
Smoking is prohibited (at all times)
It is not appropriate to write or take photographs on Shabbat and High Holy Days.
While in services:
Please minimize conversation.
Please treat your prayer book and Chumash (Bible) with respect. Do not place these sacred books on the floor.
When entering or leaving the sanctuary, please wait until the congregation is seated rather than standing in prayer.
Eating or drinking is not allowed.
Please dress appropriately-Shabbat is a special time which is defined by wearing nice clothes.
Children of all ages are welcome and encouraged to attend. Please take a child out of the sanctuary who is crying or otherwise negatively disrupting the service.
On the Bima:
When being called for Aliyah, a kippah (head covering) and a tallit (prayer shawl) are required.
