Congregant blesses the Torah during a Shabbat Service
Feel the peace and joy of Shabbat
Come join us at Shabbat services to learn from the thought-provoking teachings of our rabbi, Linda Joseph. Experience the joy of singing led by our cantor ial soloist, Beth Rubens. Feel a great sense of community as we worship together and sing the blessings at our Oneg Shabbats. Our members reach out to make guests and new members feel at home. We respect diversity and welcome all into our family.
Our rabbi’s sermons are a mix of relevant topics of the day and Torah discussions. Throughout the service our rabbi may read us some of her favorite psalms or a poem that she finds moving and appropriate for the occasion. Our cantorial soloist leads us in a variety of music, from traditional to modern, designed to please every ear and expectation. We have piano accompaniment at every Shabbat service and occasionally singing by our choir to enhance the service.
At the end of the service, we recite the prayers for the wine and bread as one community. Following the prayers, we all gather in a separate room to partake of refreshments, to catch up with the news our fellow congregants have to share, and to meet newcomers.
If you would like to experience a Bet Aviv service for yourself, please contact us to let us know you’re coming, so we can greet you. You are most welcome to join us.
Our services are Covid-safe. For those who are not able to attend in person, we offer streaming and a virtual session afterwards to catch up with fellow congregants.
All Shabbat services are held in the Meeting House, usually in Room 200. Evening services generally begin at 7:30 PM.
