Note: These guidelines apply to a typical Shabbat (e.g., not Rosh Chodesh) with an average-length Torah reading. A long Torah portion or special holiday insertions can add 20 to 40 extra minutes to the Shabbat service.
As a traditional minyan, Hebrew is our language of prayer. The one prayer that we recite in English is the prayer for the government of the United States.
It is our custom that the Shaliach Tzibur leads all of the mourner’s kaddish along with any mourners.
Adding or omitting the Imahot in the Amidah is at the discretion of the Shaliach Tzibur. The community has chosen a version from Siddur Sim Shalom, Shabbat Edition as the model for the opening bracha.
If you have questions about these guidelines, please consult the Minyan Steerers.
