We pray in Hebrew, and we pray in English.

Whatever your upbringing, you will find a meaningful prayer experience at Beth Emet.

Our Prayer Books

At Beth Emet, we use the Reform Movement’s siddur, Mishkan T’filah, as our prayer book. It offers a Hebrew, transliteration, a translation for each prayer, and contemporary alternatives of the prayers. As a congregation, we select one passage to pray aloud. Feel free to follow the selection or find an alternative version of each prayer that speaks to you.

Accessibility at Beth Emet

Beth Emet has large print prayer books and magnifiers available for those who need visual assistance, and hearing amplification devices and a T-coil system in the Sanctuary for those who need audio assistance.  There are also fidgets for those who want to use one during services. The large print books, magnifiers, amplifiers and fidgets are located outside of the Sanctuary.  If you have any questions or would like to test the T-coil system, please contact Jody.

View online versions of these prayer books or contact the office to order a copy.

Rabbi Nachman of Bratslav taught: Prayer is reaching.

It is reaching out to each other, into ourselves, and up to God. In truth, all three are the same direction, for when we reach out to others, we find ourselves and God, when we reach into ourselves we find others and God, and when we reach up to God we reach ourselves and others.

At Beth Emet, we show reverence for traditional Jewish prayer forms while experimenting and innovating, interpreting Torah, and taking time for silence and personal prayer.

We believe that the strength and depth of communal worship come from creating a structure that brings us together as a community while leaving enough room for personal prayer and introspection. We invite you to join us on our communal prayer journey and to carve out your own path as well.
