Tefilah – In-Person Only

Our Gesher learners use the natural setting in which it occurs to learn prayer. Learners have opportunities to help lead this service alongside the Cantor, and all participants develop the lifelong skill of prayer literacy. While Tefilah will not be a component of our online offering, we encourage families enrolled in this modality to take advantage of Tefilah opportunities offered through Temple Beth Sholom every Friday at 6:00pm and every Saturday at 10:30am. Shabbat services can be attended in-person or viewed online.
