Shabbat

Temple B’nai Israel is a Beit Tefillah or House of Worship and all worship services are egalitarian.

Out of that commitment, women and men at Temple B’nai Israel are equally empowered to lead all services, and all adult members are counted in the minyan (prayer quorum). Our doors are open to all who seek to worship, learn and serve the community.

Services at  Temple B'nai Israel are a learning experience.  During the service members are encouraged to raise their hand if they have a question regarding the structure of the service, the meaning of a prayer, the interpretation of the Torah portion or a comment regarding the practice of Judaism. Our goal is to broaden the understanding of Judaism.  And through better understanding establish each individual’s relationship with G-d.  Join us to experience our interactive service.  Come learn with us. Erev Shabbat Service  7:00 pm

Sha’arei Shabbat

Shabbat is a day of rest. However, it is not just a day to sleep late. The model of Sabbath rest can be found in Genesis 2:1-3: Thus, the pattern of work and rest is woven into the very fabric of the universe. Rest means more than physical ceassation of work. It implies taking oneself out of the ordinary, out of the routine, out of the rat race. This kind of rest gives us the opportunity to re-create our spirit and restore our soul. Shabbat is a time that is set aside to take notice of the wonders around us.

Join Temple B’nai Israel at our Family Shabbat Services during our Sha’arei Shabbat. Families are welcome to come together for services. Babysitting is available for those who cannot sit through the service. 

Dinner is $8 for adults if you RSVP beforehand. Children under 13 are always free. Please understand that in order to not turn anyone away, we charge $12 at the door for folks who do not RSVP. This helps cover the cost of purchasing extra food to be sure we have enough.
