Shabbat at B'nai Tikvah

Every week, in person and also streaming, B'nai Tikvah welcomes Shabbat with joy, community and shared inspirational wisdom.  Understanding that Shabbat means something different for everyone, we offer a variety of styles of services as well as alternative programming.                                  

Kabbalat Shabbat Services

Friday evening services generally begin at 6 pm.  Multiple times a year, we hold special celebrations for our Religious School or greater community, speakers programs and themed services that may have a different start time.  We aim to create a feeling of extended family.  Before and after services there is a time of socializing and during the service we light candles, make kiddush and motzei on challah, share personal blessings and receive a gift of blessing through Angel Cards.

Shabbat Morning Services

Shabbat mornings provide a time of more in-depth spiritual exploration, study, discussion and celebration. Our services begin at 10 am in person and online. During the school year, our Religious School students join the congregation for the morning service.  Students then move to the classrooms for learning while adults remain in the Sanctuary.  Typically, services finish before noon and the community joins together to enjoy a light Kiddush lunch.

Services streamed on LiveControl & YouTube

Join us for a family-friendly, in-person Kabbalat Shabbat in the synagogue. The service will begin with together time in the sanctuary, welcoming Shabbat with songs and prayers, then kids will have their own special story track in the chapel before reuniting with the adults for a post-services oneg. For those who can not come in person, join us online.
