As Dubai’s diverse Jewish community includes people from many different backgrounds and traditions, the JCC honors our community with several types of services, including a Sephardic service, an Ashkenazic service, and one especially geared for children. The sanctuary has a beautiful ark which was custom-made locally in Dubai and is a beautiful example of the expert artisanship the country is known for. The ark houses the Torah scrolls. Prayer books are available in four languages to accommodate congregants on any level of Jewish knowledge and of all nationalities. In keeping with Jewish law, men and women are seated separately. 
Prayers and songs often weave together various traditions, such as songs with Ashkenazic pronunciation sung with a traditional Egyptian tune. We are often fortunate to host a guest cantor from the main synagogue in Mumbai, India, who includes ancient Indian Jewish songs in the liturgy. Many members attend the Shabbat services, which are followed by a lavish kiddush.
