As an unaffiliated, egalitarian congregation, we have members who are reform, conservative, and other Jewish denominations. We do not discriminate based on race, gender, or sexual orientation. This mix has created a very unique situation at Seaside. Most visitors comment on how wonderful they feel the services are. We have a wonderful Religious Leader and frequent guest lay leaders, guest rabbis and cantors who lead our services. Please see our calendar section for details.
Our schedule of services and special events (such as Community Passover Seder) can be viewed by going to the "About Us" tab and selecting Newsletters. Also in our calendar, we post deadlines for reservations with links to the reservation forms wherever possible.
Normal Service Schedule is:
First Friday night of each month at 7:30 pm
Third Saturday morning of each month at 10 am
Family services throughout the year.
Extra (weekly!) services in July and August (First 2 Friday nights of the month and last 2 Saturday mornings of the month).
See the calendar or the latest newsletter (About Us >> Newsletter) for this month's schedule.
We have services during all "Major" Holidays, most minor Holidays and Festivals. We also throw in a extra Shabbat services here and there (weekly in the summer!) so please see our Calendar or Newsletter for details, times and places
High Holy Day Schedule and Break-the-Fast Reservation Form
There is no charge for attending our services, nor are tickets required. We welcome all who want to join us to celebrate these holy days. Most services are held at Epworth United Methodist Church, which is down the street from Seaside. We also hold a community Break-the-Fast meal after Yom Kippur (advance reservations required). During the HHD season, you can find a complete list of all HHD services, services/events for Sukkot and Simchat Torah, a downloadable Break-the-Fast Reservation Form, by going to ABOUT US >> NEWSLETTERS.
As has been our tradition from our very start in 1997, we have a community Seder on the 2nd night of Passover. Reservations are required. For more information, starting in February each year, go to ABOUT US >> NEWSLETTERS.
