What do people wear?
Most people come to our services “business casual,” but you’ll notice variety in what people wear. So, relax, you’ll look just fine! Please do not come in jeans.
What will I find as I walk in?
- A Table with flyers (you can take)- announcing up coming holiday observances and special events & teachings.
- Kippot (for Men)- All men are encouraged to wear a kippah while in the synagogue building. A kippah is a reminder that God is above, and a sign of submission to Him.
- Tallit (prayer shawls for men), worn over the outer clothes in the synagogue. Here at Shuvah we pray for our children under a tallit every Shabbat. Women are welcomed to wear a women’s tallit, distinctly feminine that does not contain a stripe in the design or appear to be male in design.
- An usher will hand you a Weekly Bulletin, it contains the name of
the Torah reading for the week, dates & times of upcoming events, as well
as announcements. The usher can help any questions you might have.
