CELEBRATING SHABBAT AND HOLIDAYS

We call Shabbat a delight, a day to refresh and renew. At Congregation Beth El, on Shabbat we join together as a synagogue family to rejoice in the gift of our lives, to reflect on the week gone by, and to sense God’s presence through our prayer and celebration. You are welcome to join us each week for Shabbat prayer on Friday evenings at 6:15 p.m. and Saturday mornings at 9:30 a.m. in the Stone Family Sanctuary or online via Livestream. Our rabbis, Ba'al Tefillah, and synagogue members lead us in warm, participatory services.

shabbat services - in person and online

Each Shabbat, in person and at home, as a synagogue family we celebrate God’s creative and redemptive presence in the world. During each Shabbat service, Rabbi Ron Shulman, Rabbi Avi Libman, and Ba’al Tefillah David Lipsitz guide us in prayer through melody and song, spiritual insights and reflections. Our Shabbat morning services enable participants in person and online to read Torah, receive Torah honors, and actively participate together.
We are now welcoming congregants to Shabbat Services each week. In our airy and open Stone Family Sanctuary, we enjoy each other’s company as we celebrate Shabbat. For the time being, advance registration is necessary to attend.
 
We are guided by and implementing all necessary health and safety protocols. We encourage you to consider your attendance plans based in your health concerns and comfort, as well. We urge all of you who are able to be vaccinated against the Coronavirus before planning your return to campus.
