Shabbat and Holiday Services

This lively service is led by our clergy and Ross M. Levy and features a live band.  Students in each grade of our Religious School have the opportunity to participate in this monthly service, which often includes our Junior Jammers youth choir.  Our Family Shabbat Service is held the first Friday of each month from September through June.

There are many opportunities for families with school-aged children to participate in our High Holy Day services. Options include: attending our Contemporary Morning Service at Lower Merion High School, our Musical Youth Service in the Green Family Chapel, and our Afternoon Family Service in the Sanctuary. Additionally, MLRT provides child care for our youngest members on Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur Morning and Kol Nidre so parents can participate in our main Sanctuary services.
