Find out about our Evening Services

Sinai Temple is proud to offer a selection of warm, participatory religious services. Whether it be for Friday Night Shabbat, Friday Night Live or One of our Youth Shabbat services we all come together to pray, learn and be inspired with the wisdom and power of Judaism.




Friday Night Shabbat

Friday Night Service

The Friday night service begins at 5:45 pm and concludes by 6:45 pm. It is marked by music, song, and a brief drasha -- a talk by the presiding Rabbi. It is a perfect way to mark the transition from the workweek to the Sabbath, and we hope that you will join us.



4th Friday of the month
5:45 p.m.

On the fourth Friday of every month Cantor Marcus Feldman leads Sinai Temple's Friday evening Musical Kabbalat Shabbat services alongside our rabbis and our
organist Aryell Cohen. Please join us for what promises to be a musical and spiritually uplifting service.









early friday night live

The Ted and Hedy Orden & Family "Friday Night Live" Service was initially created in 1998 to bring young Jewish professionals together to celebrate Shabbat. Blending traditional prayers with inspiring speakers and joyful music, this monthly service now attracts over 1000 people of all ages to Sinai Temple. FNL's success has been emulated at numerous congregations across the country and continues to attract dynamic speakers such as Elie Weisel, Rev. Rick Warren and David Kohan (Exec. Prod./Co-Creator of Will & Grace). Our musical guests range from Theodore Bikel to Hip Hop Shabbat to Gospel Choirs. But what makes the FNL experience truly special is the congregation that comes together to share Shabbat as a community.

With the spiritual leadership of Rabbi David Wolpe and the music of Craig Taubman, Friday Night Live is the place to be on Shabbat. Following services the entire congregation is welcome to join us for a Kiddush of cookies and coffee and one of the many post-service activities that vary month-to-month such as the Artist Salon, Israeli Dancing, or a dialogue with visiting guests and scholars. Please call the FNL Information Line for details about the upcoming service - 310.481.3353.

For more information, call 310.481.3244.
