Friday Evening Services at 6:30 pm.  This service welcomes Shabbat.  During the summer months, weather permitting, we hold services outside with the trees as our sanctuary.

Shabbat Morning Services at 9:30 am.  Our services are warm and inspirational and include a beautiful blend of the traditional liturgy with informative and uplifting sermons and discussions of the Torah portion. We welcome and encourage the participation of all our members...no invitation or RSVP necessary!

To enhance our children's learning experience we offer age appropriate services which meet once a month.

Tot Shabbat @ 11 am Share a delightfully interactive Shabbat experience each month. Come sing, dance, and celebrate a MUSICAL Shabbat with early childhood specialist, Lisa Baydush. It is designed for children up to Kindergarten and their parents. This service is generally held once a month on Shabbat from October through May.  Click here for further information and specific dates.

Hands on Shabbat @ 10:15 am (Kindergarten - Grade 3): Join your children for a hands-on Shabbat experience! We will start with a short service, followed by a different surprise experience each month to engage the whole family in fun, Shabbat-friendly activities, such as Lego building, puppet shows, storytelling, music, and more! Each month, a different guest will come, so bring the whole family every time for a unique Shabbat celebration! All are welcome to stay for the congregational Kiddush. 

Club 456 @ 10:15 am (Grades 4 - 6): Come join us for a new and improved “junior congregation” experience! We will sing, we will learn, and we will have a prayer experience that speaks to YOU!

Learner's Minyan @ 10:00 am (Grade 6): Do you have questions about Shabbat services but have never felt like it was the right time to ask? Are you preparing for your Bar or Bat Mitzvah, but still are not quite sure about everything that goes on during a service? Here is your chance to have your questions answered!  We will join, participate in, and observe the main service, then come together after the third aliyah to have some time to ask questions, discuss and debrief. Please note that students are required to attend at least two of these services as part of the B’nai Mitzvah program (though you may come as many as you want!). 

We hope you will make our weekday and Shabbat worship a part of your regular routine in the coming year. 

  • To enhance our children’s learning experience, students in Grades K-2 are expected and Grades 3-6 are required to attend at least four Friday evening or Saturday morning services at B'nai Tzedek during the school year. Attendance is monitored using a file card system, and credit is given only to those students who attend the entire service either in the sanctuary or the Youth services.

Children who arrive late to services or leave early will not receive credit.

In the 15 months prior to their Bar/Bat Mitzvah, children must attend two Friday nights and 10 Saturday morning services at B’nai Tzedek.
