At Temple Sholom, we enjoy gathering every Friday at 6:30 PM for services and every Saturday at 9:30 AM for Torah study and 10:30 AM for services. We usually pray with Mishkan T’filah, but we often create services of our own for special occasions. Our services are warm, inviting, inclusive, enthusiastic, festive and fun.
Rabbi Ari delivers engaging sermons on a variety of stimulating topics. Cantor Laura helps us to connect as a community through prayer and music. Familiar melodies ground us in the past and new melodies challenge us to interact with our sacred texts in new and unforeseen ways. Along with the help of our dedicated volunteer musicians, especially our High Holy Day Choir Director, Dr. Barbara Kessler, our voices join as one, lifting our prayers to new heights.
Members of interfaith families and members of the LGBT Community have a welcome home in Temple Sholom. Everyone describes our unpretentious congregation as familial and haimish. We take pride in our longstanding Jewish presence in New Milford. Feel free to attend any of our services any time. Make sure to introduce yourself to Rabbi Ari.
You are also welcome to join us for the High Holidays. Our Rosh HaShanah and Yom Kippur services are open to anyone who would like to join us. Nobody will be collecting tickets at the door. There are no tickets. Feel free to bring friends and family. You will have a seat at Temple Sholom. Donations in any amount are always welcome, to help us continue to provide services for everyone. Services are now conducted using the new High Holiday Prayer Book: Mishkan HaNefesh.
