We are pleased to welcome congregants to the CSZ Sanctuary to daven in person on Shabbat mornings. No reservation is necessary. If you prefer to remain in place, please participate in our Shabbat morning services through Zoom, or watch on our Live Stream.

Be one of the Minyanaires! Join us for daily Minyan services, and ensure your fellow congregants are able to say Kaddish. In addition, we would love to offer you an aliyah for any reason – a birthday, anniversary, graduation, retirement, marking the Yahrzeit of a family member, or for no particular reason at all. Our goal is to see each CSZ member honored with an aliyah in 2021. For those who might feel less comfortable, we have plenty of support, including online resources, to walk you through it and help and empower you. Contact the Ritual Committee at ritual@shaareyzedek.org, or if approached by a committee member, please say yes. We promise to help make it a fulfilling experience.

Please note that the synagogue is open only by appointment during regular business hours. Mandatory health safety protocols are in effect across the CSZ campus, including required mask use and appropriate distancing.

The sacred work of our congregation continues. We are grateful to those who support us, so we can support all of you. To sponsor a Shabbat or Daily Minyan, please contact the Synagogue office at 248.357.5544.

Other Information:

– We are pleased to open up our Shabbat morning services for you to attend in person. In doing so, we want our members to know that we recognize not everyone will be ready to travel or to attend events and services with others. We will maintain as much flexibility as we can, and offer as many options as we can, both for our variable weather, and for proximity.
