Weekly Shabbat Services

Friday evening Shabbat service begins at 7:30 p.m.  Many of our Friday evening services have a unique or special focus. The second Friday of each month is usually designated the family birthday and anniversary service, during which we recognize individuals celebrating their birthday and/or anniversary that month.  Once a month, Hazzan Geller leads a special, musical instrument, shirei Shabbat service. During the school year, every religious school grade has a designated shabbat evening or morning service for their participation. And each month, proceeding one of our Friday evening services, B'nai Shalom sponsors a Congregational Shabbat dinner.

Shabbat morning services begin at 9:15 a.m.  Our Shabbat morning services frequently include participation by B’nai Mitzvah, individuals with special simhas or guest lecturers.  Once a month there is a gan shabbat program to introduce kindergarten through preschoolers to Shabbat morning services. A kiddush after services provides an opportunity for communal social gathering and several times a year, following the kiddush, there is Kiddush Konversation, an informal discussion with the rabbi or invited guest speaker on various timely topics.

Daily Services - Minyan

Weekday services are conducted Monday through Thursday at 7:30 p.m., Friday morning at 6:45 a.m and Sunday morning at 9:00 a.m.  Please check our website calendar to confirm this schedule.  Often, after Sunday minyan, Rabbi Sunshine will lead a discussion on aspects of Jewish law.  We encourage our members to participate in daily minyan as a way to support those reciting kaddish.

Holiday Services

Holidays and festivals are celebrated through services and appropriate observances. The Early Childhood school and religious school students decorate the Sukkah for Sukkot and each class shares a snack there. Congregants dance with the Torah scrolls on Simhat Torah, and celebrate Purim with a family service and full traditional reading of the Migilah, as well as adapted young family Megillah storytelling. On the first evening of Shavuot, there is Tikun Lail Shavuot, a study session, and on the first morning, Jewish Day School students participate in the service. Confirmation is generally held on the second night of Shavuot. And High Holiday information is available through the synagogue office.

Services for our Youth

Tot Shabbat - Geared for families with pre-school age children. This monthly Shabbat morning service begins at 11:00 am (runs approximately 40 minutes) and combines song, prayer, and bible stories. Led by Jennifer Sunshine.

Minyan Beyahad - For Religious School students in grades (K-6th grade). This family oriented service is an interactive experience that makes the Shabbat morning service come alive. While this service is open to all students, it is a requirement for students in some of the religious school grades. To make Minyan Beyahad even more special, we welcome parents to sponsor the service in honor of a special occasion.
