Friday Evening Services
Every Erev Shabbat, we gather as a community to welcome Shabbat in prayer and song. These services usually start at 6 p.m. and end about 7:15 p.m. There is usually a short sermon or teaching. The services are followed by a communal Oneg Shabbat where members and visitors have a chance to mingle. Our members wear name tags, and visitors are encouraged to fill one out so that they can be welcomed and greeted. If you leave your handwritten name tag in the basket, you will have a typed one the following week.
a month at Kabbalat Shabbat services, we host our Thank God It’s
Shabbat (TGIS) service, full of upbeat, joyous inspiring music and
liturgy. This hour long multi-generational service usually includes a
sermon that is inviting for adults and children of all ages. On some Friday evenings, we welcome a special speaker, have a congregational dinner or celebrate a special occasion. Please check the calendar to see if anything is scheduled.
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.

During our service the Elbaum family will share the story of a group of American soldiers who liberated a train carrying 2,500 Jewish prisoners from Bergen-Belsen in April 1945. Among them was the father of TBE member Dan Elbaum. Come hear this story, and how it is being kept alive today.
