Traditional Egalitarian Minyan
The Traditional Egalitarian Minyan (TEM) at Adas Israel meets in the Gewirz Beit Am, every Shabbat morning at 9:30 a.m., with the Torah service around 10:30 a.m.
The TEM is a warm, spirited service, committed to participatory worship. Led by lay people with the occasional assistance of Adas clergy, the TEM service offers a full P’sukei D’Zimrah (introductory Psalms), Shacharit, and Musaf, a complete reading of the weekly Torah portion, and a D'var Torah.
The TEM is attended by people of all ages: singles, couples, families, young children, teens and seniors. Our service ends around the same time as the Smith Sanctuary service and we join together for the congregational Kiddush.
Those who have not yet leyned, led davening or given Divrei Torah in the past are encouraged to develop their skills and take on new leadership roles in the Traditional Egalitarian Minyan. We are happy to provide guidance to those who wish to participate but are still developing their synagogue skills.
Young children lead Ashrei, Anim Z’mirot and other closing prayers and open the ark.
