6 pm Fridays at Beth Jacob
This summer, we are having Kabbalat Shabbat services outdoors every week!
Every other week, services will be followed by an outdoor potluck Shabbat dinner.
Our next “Shabbatluck” will be on Friday, July 9 at Beth Jacob. We will begin with Kabbalat Shabbat at 6 pm, followed by a dairy potluck dinner, and Ma’ariv. Join us!
Friday, August 13; Sign-up Deadline: August 4

Would you like to get to know other members of Beth Jacob better? Whether you are a new member or an old-timer, you will love this program that will help all of us to reach beyond our usual social circles in the shul and engage the entire community. On August 13, Beth Jacob will re-launch “Share a Shabbat Table”, a program that aims to bring together the entire Beth Jacob community with a series of Shabbat dinners hosted by members in their homes. The goals are to connect congregants with each other to help us all make new friends, and to share a congregation-wide erev Shabbat dinner together. We hope everyone will participate!
PLEASE NOTE: in keeping with the shul’s policy of requiring Covid vaccinations to participate in services, we ask that only vaccinated congregants sign up for Share a Shabbat Table.
Join us for Shabbat services in the Beth Jacob sanctuary – no sign-up required, no capacity restrictions, and no distancing restrictions! Attendees must be vaccinated if they are 16 years old or older, and everyone must wear a mask inside.
You have the option to pick up your Kiddush Kit after services and eat it outside. To do that, select the option when you order; YOU MUST ORDER a kit by the Tuesday preceding each Shabbat to get a kit. Click here to order. Beginning July 31, we will be moving to a conventional kiddush again. That means we will no longer be offering kiddush kits starting that Shabbat.
Also, on alternate weeks with Meditation, it will be in person (and on Zoom) in the Chapel at 9:15 am.
Morning minyan is currently meeting in person and on Zoom every day, weekdays at 7:15 am and Sundays at 8:30 am.

Shabbat Youth Services
- Minyan Katan: 9:30 am outside Beth Jacob for families with children ages 0 – 5
- Kayitz Kefi/Summer Fun
Every other week all summer
10 am outside Beth JacobOur wonderful Iyunim teacher, Tauby Mintz, will lead activities geared for children in grades PK-4, with younger or older children welcome to participate as well!In Kayitz Kefi, we’ll explore through play, song and story the themes of Earth/Adamah, Water/Mayim, Wind/Ruach, Sky/Shamayim. Each theme will incorporate Hebrew vocabulary and connect to a Torah story as well. As we engage in these themes, we’ll also be working on helping reorient ourselves to shul spaces and social interactions, as well as processing the experience of being in a kehillah together and what that means. The atmosphere is meant to feel more relaxed (similar to camp) and because we will be primarily outside, we ask that children bring a hat, water bottle, sunscreen, swimsuit and towel each time.
Kayitz Kefi Dates: July 10, 17, 31; August 14, 21
Camp Shabbat: Saturday, June 12
Camp is back, and so is the Beth Jacob Camp Shirt! On Shabbat, June 12, we will be celebrating sending kids off to camp, and we will have free shirts for all who are going.
While services will be in person, we know that some camp attendees will be in the pre-camp quarantine process and will be unable to attend. We will unveil the shirt at services, but they can be picked up at Beth Jacob anytime during business hours!
