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 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
