Shabbat

Shabbat

Shabbat is a day on which we are called upon to share in what is eternal in time, to turn from the results of creation to the mystery of creation; from the world of creation to the creation of the world.

– Abraham Joshua Heschel

Connect with us. Pray with us. Learn with us.

We believe that we are all part of this sacred creation, that on Shabbat we can each become challah bakers, oneg hosts, and Torah readers, as a way of connecting to a life that aligns with the creative and leads to the sacred.

In-Person Services

With the continuing downward trend in COVID-19 cases across the DC area, Temple Micah is open for in-person services! Proof of vaccination for those eligible (age 5 and up) is required at the door. At this time, masks are not required indoors or outdoors. No advance registration is required to attend. Read our most recent updates for more information.

Online Services

For security purposes, links to Zoom offerings are not posted online — join our mailing list to get access to the links or contact info@templemicah.org. To ensure robust connectivity, we recommend downloading the latest version of Zoom.

ACCESSIBILITY: We use an automated system for closed captioning during services. Because captions are auto-generated, they may not be entirely accurate, and will not auto-generate when we are speaking or singing in Hebrew. Hebrew texts will always be available in the prayer book and/or weekly service sheets, linked below.

ZOOM CHAT: During online services, the Zoom chat box is restricted to reduce distractions. If we request chat messages from the online community, or if you experience any problems, you will always be able to send a direct message to the Zoom user named “Temple Micah.”
