"Shabbat is a sanctuary in time."    — Rabbi A. J. Heschel

Shabbat at Temple Judea is an uplifting, joyful and spiritual experience that offers a chance to connect with others and to learn.

Friday Evening Gatherings 

We welcome the Sabbath in community with songs, prayers, learning and nosh.  We enjoy meaningful programs and events for all ages.

During the warmer months, Shabbat is often celebrated in our outdoor prayer space. 

Our monthly Family Services during the school year include participation of Religious School students. Age-appropriate prayer books are used on those occasions.

We usually begin at  7:00 pm. See calendar for details.

Saturday morning study and worship

Sabbath mornings at Temple Judea begin at 8:45 with a one-hour Torah study. You are welcome at our interactive learning group as we explore Parshat ha’shavuah, the week's Torah portion, together. Bagels and coffee are offered.

During the virus separation period we are having Torah Study via conference call. Please join us.  Dial in: 605-313-4100. Conf #776435. (You'll need to bring your own coffee and bagel to this conference call.)

Shabbat morning services begin at 10:30 in conjunction with B’nai Mitzvah and other special events. See calendar for weekly details.

Do you need to say Kaddish? 

You are welcome at our holiday service, Friday night gatherings, Saturday morning services, and Torah study. On mornings when there is no formal Shabbat service, Torah study group concludes with Kaddish for those who are honoring their loved ones.
