When you can't be at the Temple in person for services, you can now join services live from the Wulfe Sanctuary and Oppenheimer Chapel or watch archived services online.
Ushering at a Shabbat or Holiday Service is an easy way to make a positive impact on our Temple. Shaking hands, smiling, and saying "Shabbat Shalom" to someone may truly make a big difference in a person's life. Ushers also help the flow of the worship service, and make worshipers feel comfortable.
