Service Schedule


Friday evening Kabbalat Shabbat services are at 6:15 PM. Watch for monthly “Kabbalat Shabbat with Strings Attached” and "Strings Attached with Klei AJ" programming for a unique and engaging experience. "Kabbalat Shabbat with Strings Attached" features Hazzan Glantz playing the acoustic guitar and "Kabbalat Shabbat with Klei AJ" features an ensemble of AJers with a variety of musical instruments. Both are followed by an oneg.

Shabbat Morning services are held every Saturday in either the Chapel or the main sanctuary at 9:30 AM; Havurah services begin at 10:00 AM in the Library. (See below for a description of AJ's Havurah.)

Mincha-Ma'ariv-Havdalah: Please check the AJ Calendar for up-to-date start times and location listings.

Family and Youth Services: These are held throughout the year. Please check the AJ Calendar for up-to-date service listings.

Minyan: How many of us are working on something we care about, but are not sure if it is making a difference? Minyan — the minimum 10 Jews that must be present for a mourner to recite Kaddish — is a cure for that uncertainty! Every time you walk into Minyan, you are part of the countdown to ten; sometimes you are THE tenth. And it’s YOU who has made the difference between a mourner saying Kaddish or not — Hebrew not required. Just showing up makes a difference; how many things can you say that about? Minyan gathers morning and evening at AJ six days a week; of special note is that morning Minyan is always followed with warm bagel breakfasts to which “All are invited, no exceptions!”  

P.S.  By “all” we mean “all” — you are NOT required to be a member to join us. But you will want to because we’re such a collection of personalities. Trust us on this!

Daily Minyan services are held mornings and evenings.

Morning Minyan is always available at AJ followed by breakfast.

For holiday and summer service times or if you are unsure about any start times, please call the synagogue for the service schedule at 215.635.6611, consult our Newsletter or view the AJ Calendar.

The Havurah is an important part of the AJ community. The fact that the synagogue accommodates diverse davening styles makes services appealing to those who wish to daven in a lay-led, traditional Conservative egalitarian service in an informal, intimate setting. The service generally includes a Torah discussion, as well as opportunities for children to participate. Created in 1976 by AJ members, the Havurah has been part of our congregation for over 40 years.

During COVID, the Havurah is not meeting on a regular basis. Please call the office if you are interested in finding out more about the havurah service. For more information, please contact the office at 215.635.6611 or

For information about kiddush or oneg sponsorship, contact the synagogue office at 215.635.6611.
