When entering the Synagogue, we should keep in mind that first and foremost we are coming to meet with God - we are coming before the presence of a Holy God. Therefore, we need to consider what dress is appropriate for services.
The world's fashion is not what God sets forth in Scripture, and many of the modern fashions are not pleasing to Him. It is our desire at Kehilat Sar Shalom to honor God and His holy day. Therefore we place a high priority on modest dress.
Kehilat Sar Shalom does have a suggested dress code. For men, T-shirts and shorts are discouraged. For women, dresses and skirts should be long enough to cover the knees when seated. Shirts should have sleeves and necklines should not be low-cut.
Above all we ask for modesty and that men and women wear gender appropriate attire. Provided below are some examples of what is considered inappropriate attire at Kehilat Sar Shalom:
Because it is the Sabbath, we encourage our members to dress their best in honor of God's holy day. We ask parents to please see that their children are dressed respectfully as well.
