On Shabbat

7:30pm Traditional Reform Shabbat Service: A beautiful worship service in the mainstream Reform model using a variety of musical styles to create a warm and inviting worship experience. Typically, the last Shabbat of each month the choir sings. Our rabbis offer inspirational learning with their sermons. Includes opportunities for reflection and inspiration. This service is followed by an Oneg Shabbat of desserts and socializing!

Every Saturday at 9am: Torah Study in room 214/215
Exploration of the weekly portion in a warm and welcoming atmosphere where each participant has the opportunity to learn, listen and share. A brief lay-led service follows the study.

Every Saturday at 9:15am*: Shabbat morning Conservative prayer in the Chapel. Ivdu Et Hashem B’simcha (Serve the Holy One with Joy) blends high energy, joyous, participatory service with opportunities for meditation and contemplation in a warm and intimate community. Return to that moment at Mt. Sinai through traditional Torah reading while exploring its personal relevance to each one of us. Led by our rabbis and lay leadership. * Jerusalem Shabbat begins at 9:30am.



During the Week

Refuat HaNefesh: Healing of the Soul Minyan
Tuesdays at 6:30pm

A prayer gathering held each and every Tuesday evening in the Sidney Eisenberg Chapel. This service enables those of us who are in mourning or observing a Yahrzeit to join with their Temple Beth El family for a 30 minute service filled with prayer, song and quiet moments of reflection to recite the Mourner’s Kaddish. The service is a fusion of prayers both in Hebrew and English, using the weekday prayer book, Siddur Eit Ratzon. All the Hebrew is transliterated and has beautiful, relevant explanations of the intentions behind the prayers.

*Oneg is a time for the community to come together and visit, with savory eats

**Jerusalem Shabbat Details:

Jerusalem Shabbat Experience
with the Band of Milk and Honey (& a little schnapps)
At 9:30am on select Saturdays:

On the streets of Jerusalem on Shabbat morning, the dew on the trees reflect sunlight sparkling diamonds, the air is crisp and still, and the peace is palatable. Joyous prayer pours out houses and little shteibls - the human song and the song of creation intertwined. Friends and family come together to eat, to share, and to immerse in words of life-giving Torah. One can’t imagine a Torah more relevant and real.
• Be absorbed in a meditative and meaningful musical journey through the morning service
• Enjoy transliterated and fully-accessible Hebrew prayer
• Rejoice around the Torah with schnapps and sparkling cider
• Eat and engage with community over lunch
