Shabbat services are held at 7pm on Friday nights and 10:30am on Saturday mornings year round. Whether you are a long-term Parisian or just passing through, please join us ! All services are held in French, English and Hebrew with a trilingual siddur.
In our synagogue, everyone has the same rights and duties. Which is why every adult Jew, man or woman, can wear a tallit, put on tefillin, be called to the Torah and lead prayers at our services. There is no barrier separating men and women in the sanctuary. Our trilingual siddur takes into account the evolution of our tradition and our place in the modern world.
Haverim, chers KG-nicks,
Shabbat shall be a day of delight” (Isa. 58:13). As the week ends with the sun setting on Friday night, we have the opportunity to rise above the petty frustrations and annoyances of our weekly routine. Instead we get the chance to concentrate on more important values, such as communal life and our families.
