Congregation B'nai Israel holds regular Shabbat Services every Friday night and Saturday morning throughout the year. We provide various types of prayer services in order to meet the needs of our diverse community.
Our Shabbat Services begin at 6:00 pm on Fridays. Following the service on the first Friday night of the month, there is a Potluck Dinner.
Gates of Prayers Services
Modern liturgy and music characterize the flavor of this inspiring service.
Union Prayer Book Services
These services are held once or twice each month and include classical Reform traditions and music provided by a soloist accompanied by our pipe organ.
Shabbat Morning Prayer and Torah Study
This informal minyan meets every Saturday in the Gary J. Weill Youth Lounge at 10:00. This is an opportunity to ask questions about the service and to discuss the weekly Torah portion. Don't miss this intimate and uplifting Jewish experience.
Please check the calendar for detailed information on dates and times of Shabbat Services.
We welcome all those who want to pray with us on Shabbat. Most people who attend services dress "business casual.”
Rabbi Jordan wears a kippah and tallit. Kippot (head coverings) and Talesim (prayer shawls) are available as you enter the sanctuary. These are optional and we encourage our members to pray in the manner to which they are accustomed.
