Shabbat

Shabbat is a Time to Unplug


Shabbat:  Our Friday evening service, which includes Kabbalat Shabbat and Maariv, begins at 7:30 pm .  Responsive English readings are incorporated as part of the Friday night service. This service usually is less than an hour in length.

Shabbat morning services begin at 9:30 A.M. and last about 3 hours.

B'nai Mitzvahs usually occur from August through June at Beth Judea.  We also have Havdallah services when there is a Bar or Bat Mitzvah on a Saturday evening. (Check "The Word".)  A Kiddush always follows Saturday morning Shabbat services.

On Shabbat Mornings we offer three alternatives to the main serivice: 

Alternative Service: Begins at 10:30 a.m. - 45 minute lay-led pdukaei dzimrah and shacharit service. followed by 30 minute torah discussion, lay-led. After the service, those in attendance will join the main service for the sermon and Torah discussion and kiddush.

Junior Congregation: Junior Congregation is a Shabbat service for kids, run by kids ages 7-13.  Our service offers a fun atmosphere in which to learn Shabbat morning tefillot (prayers), and engage in meaningful Jewish learning and interactive discussions.  Students will establish a more meaningful relationship with Jewish values and prayers through fun interactive games, themed-Shabbat services, stories, and role play.  Participants will end the morning in the Robbins sanctuary where they help lead Ein Keloheinu, Aleinu, and Adon Olam on non-B’nai Mitzvah mornings.  Junior Congregation services will count towards Shabbat service requirements: 4 Shabbat service requirements for Aleph and Bet, 3 Shabbat service requirements for Gimel – Heh.
