Worship (Avodah) in the Falmouth Jewish Congregation reflects our desire to create a variety of opportunities for spiritual seeking and fulfillment. Our services embrace lively music, poetry, Torah, and dialogue.

Our congregation uses Mishkan T’filah, an engaging and user-friendly worship tool. You do not need to be familiar with Hebrew to have a fulfilling experience. Most services are led with guitar and, regularly, with a musical ensemble. Congregational singing is greatly encouraged. We are always eager to welcome visitors and newcomers to our community. We also encourage family worship at all of our services and, for the sake of little ones, provide books and toys just outside our worship space.



Beginning in late March of 2020, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, all of our worship experiences became virtual ones, via the ZOOM platform.

In-person worship resumed, for members of the congregation only, in 2022 and are subject to COVID precautions. For further information, please contact the temple office.


Simchat Torah

From the joy of Purim and Simchat Torah to our congregational Pesach seder, we move through the Jewish year marking and celebrating Jewish sacred time. Consult the calendar as holidays approach for a schedule of congregational observances, both worship and programs.

High Holy Days

High Holy Day worship requires tickets, which are provided to members. Members of Reform (URJ) congregations may request reciprocal tickets for the High Holy Days by contacting the office.

If you are not a member and would like to explore the possibility of worshiping with us, please contact the office. We extend courtesy tickets to full-time students in the area, as well as active-duty service personnel and their families. On the afternoons of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur we hold family services, which are open to the public and do not require tickets.

Our Tashlich (“casting”) ceremony on the afternoon of the first day of Rosh Hashanah is held at an area beach and is a highlight of our High Holy Day worship. Non-members are welcome to join us.


We enjoy two wonderful worship spaces, the historic East End Meeting House, built in 1797, and Goode Chapel in our Blanche & Joel D. Seifer Community Center building. Both buildings are handicap accessible, although the Meeting House does not, at this time, offer handicap-accessible restrooms. Please consult the calendar to determine where services are being held. Parking for both facilities is located at 7 Hatchville Road. Limited handicap parking is available at the Meeting House.
