The centerpiece of our community’s week is Shabbat. Our Shabbat morning service brings together individuals with wide-ranging knowledge of liturgy and practice, and Kehillat Shabbat and Iyunim provide an opportunity for even the smallest children to know the joys of Shabbat.

Kabbalat Shabbat:

Kabbalat Shabbat takes place each Friday; at 5:30 p.m. in Winter, and at 6:00 p.m. in Summer (check our calendar for specifics).

Half an hour before the service, we will wish each other a Shabbat Shalom and share some wine or sparkling grape juice and cheese, and then we will gather and daven, and sing our way through Kabbalat Shabbat. What a wonderful way to prepare for Shabbat! A little davenning, a little schmoozing and a little delectable delight. Stop by on your way home from work, or come on over before you sit down for Shabbas dinner. Beginning in June, we will daven Kabbalat Shabbat outside, weather permitting.

Minyan Katan is for families with children 0 – 4 years.

Kiddush Lunch following Shabbat morning services is an important part of Beth Jacob. People gather to share stories, laugh, joke, and meet new people. With Kiddush, we build connections that make Beth Jacob a strong, vibrant community.

We also have a number of learning opportunities available on Shabbat. Visit our Congregational Learning pages for more information.
