Shabbat

B'nai Havurah's services offer members and guests a variety of experiential approaches, including music-focused and intergenerational services, monthly Torah study minyans (often lay-led), Storahtelling and more.

B'nai Havurah holds Shabbat services every Saturday morning at 9:30 am -- a thoughtful balance of prayer, singing, readings, Torah leining and discussion. We generally schedule a Music Shabbat Service with instrumental accompaniment on the first Saturday of each month.

Our popular Friday night School Shabbat evenings, coordinated with our Religious School, are held on the second Friday of the month during the school year and are geared toward families with school-age children and preschoolers. We begin at 5:30 pm with songs for young children, followed by a catered dinner at 6:00 pm and a short service (co-led by our students, music director, and Rabbi) at 7:00 pm. 

Beginning on January and on the fourth Friday evening of each month thereafter, we offer an all-ages Shabbat experience that includes, ritual, food, singing, camaraderie, and shared community. We start at 6:30 pm with a lively, joyous Kabbalat Shabbat and Ma'ariv (evening) service, followed by a dinner at 7:30 pm (potluck with a catered main dish).

Throughout the year, we offer a number of additional Shabbat programs, including Kirtan Havdalah services (call-and-response chant-based musical experience) and Shabbat in the 'Hood, hosted by B'nai Havurah families in their homes during the summer months.
