We celebrate Shabbat each Friday at 5:45pm and on Saturday mornings beginning at 9:15. All are welcome.



Shabbat Morning

Shabbat morning services in our Main Sanctuary are participatory, warm, inspiring and egalitarian.  We are blessed with a skilled and passionate cadre of congregants who lead our davening and read from the sefer Torah each week.  Our worship begins with Birchot HaShachar and continues through our sprited P'seukei D'zimra, Shacharit, Torah service (where we read the complete Parasha) and concludes with a lively Musaf.  We join together in a warm and inviting community kiddush lunch every week.  Visitors are always warmly welcomed!


Kabbalat Shabbat

Friday evening services are typically held in our Small Sanctuary, on the lower level. All are welcome to gather beginning at 5:00, as we toast the week that was and schmooze before beginning our song-filled services at 5:45pm.


Children's Services






Our popular Matchilim (beginners) service for preschoolers is a joyful celebration of Shabbat filled with stories, songs and prayer. It begins at 10:30 in Classroom 5 on the lower level every Shabbat that school is in session. Preschoolers should bring a grown-up along.

Children in grades K-7 who are registered Talmud Torah students attend Shabbat School on Saturday mornings. Visitors ages 5-13 are welcome to join them for age-appropriate t'fillah beginning at 10:30 every Shabbat that school is in session. Younger school-age children (grades K-2) meet in Classroom 4. Children in grades 3-7 meet in the Small Sanctuary. School-age children may attend children's services while their grown-ups are in the main sanctuary or elsewhere in the building.

When Talmud Torah is not in session, we offer a multi-age children's service at 10:30 on select Shabbatot. Check the calendar or email education@bethisraelcenter.org for dates or with any questions.

Children are always welcome in the Main Sanctuary.
