Worship FAQs

Are you new here? Want to try out a Service but have some questions first? Here's a list of frequently asked questions. If you still need an answer, please reach out to us via phone at 561.747.1109  or email and we'd be happy to help you.

When are Shabbat Services?
Temple Beth Am holds Shabbat Services every Friday evening, typically at 7:00pm. Services are also streamed live on our Facebook page and via Livestream. On certain holidays, like Hanukkah or Independence Day, the timing may vary. The correct Service time for the desired week can always be found on our calendar page, or by contacting us at 561.747.1109 or

No RSVP is required to attend Shabbat services. 

I'm not a member. Can I come to...

Are prayer books provided?
Yes, prayer books are available in the slot on the back of the pew in front of you, however the entire service is also projected on screens. 

What if I don't know Hebrew?
That's OK. Our services are a  mixture of English, Hebrew, and transliterated Hebrew (meaning it uses English letters but phonetically spells out the Hebrew words). 

How do I know when to stand, bow, etc.? 
The Service leaders, typically referred to as clergy, will announce when they'd like the congregation to rise. The congregation typically rises during certain prayers and when the ark is opened. Stand with the rest of the congregation as you are able.

What should I wear?
Anything from business casual to semi-formal attire will be fine. Most congregants refrain from shorts, jeans, and flip-flops.

Do I need to wear anything like a yarmulke?
The donning of a kippah  (yarmulke) or tallit   (prayer shawl with fringes) is a personal preference at Temple Beth Am. Both men and women may choose to wear these ritual garments during prayer. Kippot and tallitot (worn during morning Services) are provided at the entrance to our sanctuary for those who wish to wear them.
