Friday Night Shabbat Services

Shabbat services are held every Friday evening. Most Fridays the service starts at 7:30 p.m. Once a month we have early services starting at 6:30; please check our calendar for early service dates.

Erev Shabbat services are song-filled, family-friendly, and include readings in English, as well as Hebrew prayers. Often, Rabbi Jack reads a story that relates to the weekly Torah portion or an upcoming holiday.

Services are followed by an Oneg Shabbat (“delight of Shabbat”). The Oneg is a festive, informal social gathering, and is a perfect opportunity for us to meet you and for you to get to know our synagogue and our congregants. All are welcome--please join us!

Saturday Morning Shabbat Services

The Jewish Center of the Moriches offers Shabbat morning services once a month at 9:30, followed by a festive kiddush luncheon.  Check our calendar for the next date.

People of all ages are encouraged to join us for this special Shabbat experience.

In particular families with young children are invited to participate as this service is especially child friendly.

Our students assist in the leading of this service, displaying some of what they have learned in Hebrew School.

Shabbat morning services are also a wonderful opportunity for our adult members and guests to be called up to the Torah for the recitation of the Torah blessings.

Familyhood Greeting

Every year at the start of the High Holidays, the Deborah Familyhood (formerly known as Sisterhood) posts a High Holidays Greetings list in the lobby of the Synagogue. 


This list displays the names of anyone who wishes to extend Jewish New Year greetings to the community. Donations in any amount are accepted; all donors are listed on the greeting list. The High Holiday Family Greeting is a major fundraiser for the Familyhood. Your support of this annual fundraiser is greatly appreciated.

The JCM Familyhood functions as a fundraising organization for the Jewish Center, making a sizeable contribution to the congregational activities.  The Familyhood sponsors all of the Oneg Shabbats that are held after each Friday night service.
