Friday Evening Services
Kabbalat Service, Friday, 6:00 pm
Every Friday evening, we gather as a community to welcome Shabbat in prayer and song. Our warm, welcoming Shabbat service usually starts at 6:00 pm, ends at approximately 7:15 pm, and includes a short sermon or teaching. The service is followed by a communal Oneg Shabbat giving members and visitors opportunities to greet one another. On some Friday evenings, we welcome a speaker, have a congregational dinner or celebrate a special occasion. All ages are welcome; babysitting available most Fridays.
TGIS Service, Friday, 6:00 pm (monthly)
Once a month at Kabbalat Shabbat services, we host our Thank God It’s Shabbat (TGIS) service, full of upbeat, joyful, inspiring music and liturgy. This hour-long multi-generational service usually includes a sermon that is inviting for adults and children of all ages. Concurrent to TGIS is a Kabbalat Shabbat service in the Beit Midrash for those seeking a more intimate and familiar prayer experience.
TBE Prayer Project, Friday, 6:00 pm (monthly)
Our community has always been open to creative spiritual exploration. This year we offer an array of exploratory erev Shabbat services that run concurrently to services in the sanctuary. This smaller, intimate prayer space is ideal for experimenting with different models of Jewish worship, which may include extended silent meditation, traditional chanting, drumming, movement and new music. The service is the same length as the main sanctuary service so the entire community can rejoice in Oneg Shabbat together.
Worshippers of all ages are welcome at our services. Recognizing that young children often become restless in the sanctuary, we provide babysitting in our nursery school wing on most Friday evenings
TBE’s services are open to worshippers of all ages. Babysitting is available most Friday evenings and registration is not required.
If you are unable to attend a service, watch us live via our stream.
