Kabbalat Shabbat Friday Evening

Kabbalat Shabbat Services - Check our  Facebook Page to confirm this week's schedule

We have a variety of Friday Night options to welcome in Shabbat throughout the year

6:15 pm at Beth El
Friday nights at Beth El are a wonderful opportunity to spend time with family and friends as well as break away from the craziness and routines of the previous week. This is a time when we can set aside all of our weekday concerns and devote ourselves to connecting to God through uplifting music, prayer, meditation and celebration. Come and explore Beth El’s various Kabbalat Shabbat offerings – we hope you’ll be inspired, invigorated and joyful! At times this service is focused on learning the liturgy. Other times, it is enhanced by musical instruments.

7:30 pm in Congregants' homes "Neighborhood Shabbat"
A wonderful Friday night service experience that our congregants lead in their homes! This friendly, intimate service replaces the service at Beth El for just these nights. These Friday night services are relaxed, casual, and take place in an intimate space, adding to the spiritual experience.

7:30 pm at Beth El "Welcome Friday Night"
Rabbi O leads a regular guided meditation service on "Finding the Divine within Us." Join us as we welcome Shabbat into our week using the Friday night liturgy as our guide.

6:00 pm at Beth El "Young Family Fridays"
Our Young Family Fridays begin with a musical Friday night Shabbat service geared towards toddlers, preschoolers, Kindergarteners and their families. The service is followed by a festive and kid-friendly Shabbat dinner.

6:15 pm Outdoors at a Neighhood Park "Potluck in the Park"
In the Spring and Summer months, congregants gather at local parks that are walking distance from Beth El for a dairy/vegetarian potluck Shabbat dinner followed by a Shabbat service outdoors.

5:30 pm in Congregants' Homes "Shabbat Shalom in the Home"
Congregants host Shabbat dinner for the community in their home, followed by a casual Kabbalat Shabbat service.

"Shabbat Across Beth El"
Shabbat Across Beth El takes place quarterly, in which congregants sign up to host and be hosted and we bring members together in each other's homes to have Shabbat dinner together.
