Shabbat / Services

CandlelightingThe weekly celebration of Shabbat has long served the Jewish community as our primary act of communal prayer. In fact, tradition teaches that Shabbat, above all other holidays and festivals, is Judaism’s most sacred day. We hope that you will find Shabbat at B’nai Jehudah spiritually uplifting.



Regular Shabbat Services

Friday Evenings:

5:30pm: Bisseleh Nosh
6:00pm: Erev Shabbat Service

Join together in the lobby for a small “nosh” as we come together as a family in prayer to begin the joyful celebration of Shabbat. Come for a reinvigorating 60-minute respite from the day-to-day, as Shabbat begins. We greet Shabbat with song, prayer, and a meaningful message delivered by our rabbis or a guest speaker.

Saturday Mornings:

10:30am: Shabbat Service Every Saturday

What better way to celebrate Shabbat than with a 90-minute service, to say “thank you” for the blessings that are ours? On many of our Saturday mornings, our B’nai Mitzvah lead the majority of our service, offering their own youth-inspired teachings. On other Saturdays, our services are more informal, held in the round. We spend our time praying, singing, and learning together.

Shabbat Chadash

5:30pm: Bisseleh Nosh
6:00pm: Shabbat Chadash

Shabbat Chadash is a monthly Erev Shabbat service in the round, filled with music provided by our own instrumentalists and vocalists. No sermon is given, but a few brief thoughts on timely topics are shared.
