We invite you to join us in Worship, in-person, or via our live-stream. Check our calendar for specific service details or call us at 216-464-1330. Our Shabbat and holiday services and events in the MAIN WING (non-school area) of our building allow the option of wearing masks or not. In the interest of community safety, we continue to strongly encourage COVID-19 safety practices including vaccination and have carefully limited seating capacity to 150 persons in our Mandel Sanctuary with distanced seating available.
Shabbat Evening Services – Every Shabbat (Friday) evening, Fairmount Temple offers a 6:15 pm Shabbat Service with soothing prayers, inspiring teachings and uplifting music. In addition to our clergy, we often host guest speakers, scholars, activists and musicians to help demonstrate the relevance of Judaism in encountering the world.
Simchat Shabbat – Simcha means joy, and this special Simchat Shabbat experience for children from 0-5 and their families is a song-filled celebration filled with joy. Bring a picnic blanket and join us monthly as we gather outside for our special Shabbat experience.
Shabbat Atid (“The Future”) – Our clergy co-lead this Shabbat Worship for the whole community with Religious School students as readers and musicians and even as teachers. Once per season, the Shabbat Atid service draws many generations to join together.
Special Occasions – In recent months, we’ve experimented with offering healing services, or rituals such as nightly lay leadership of Chanukah menorah candle-lightings. We encourage you to share ideas with us at Fairmount Temple for ways we can assist and be a resource to you in fulfilling Jewish rituals for special occasions in our Jewish calendar or in response to current events happening in the world.
High Holy Day and Festival Worship – In collaboration with one another and members of our community, choir, Torah and prayer readers, accompanists and guest musicians, our clergy lead inspiring worship on Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur, Sukkot, Simchat Torah, Passover, Shavuot and Chanukah. Four times per year, we host memorial Yizkor services to help our community members remember their loved ones and we also celebrate with great festivity the joy of holidays such as Simchat Torah and Chanukah with special music and playful modern interpretations of our Jewish tradition.
