Join Us for Shabbat Services in person or zoom and Weekly Minyanim on zoom!

Heska Amuna offers a variety of formats for Shabbat worship. This springs from our desire to provide religious services and rituals that fulfill the needs of an egalitarian congregation bringing inclusive and traditional approaches that reflect our roots as a conservative congreation.

Our Traditional Shabbat Services begin with Psukei D’Zimra and Shacharit, includes all of the Torah readings and Haftorah for the week’s parsha using the Triennial readings, and ends with Musaf. Traditional services are usually held on the first and third Shabbat each month.

Our Contemporary Shabbat Services, led by Rabbi Shush Carson, include modern melodies, acoustic guitar, and a shorter service format with a d’var torah but does not include reading torah or chanting haftorot. Contemporary services are usually held on the second and fourth Shabbat each month.

For months where there is a fifth Shabbat, special services are designed based on the time of year these Shabbatot fall.

Throughout the month, special learning activities are offered to children, pre-school aged through middle school.

Always check our weekly newsletter, Nu News, *here* for the service schedule for the current week.
