Shabbat in the Sanctuary

Shabbat is a sacred space in time—a taste of the world to come. We value the opportunity to gather, to reflect, and to feel as if all our needs are met. Shabbat is the centerpiece of the Bet Torah experience, offering warmth, comfort and inspiration. We articulate our vision for this experience as follows:

“We come together as a community to celebrate the joy of Shabbat. Bet Torah welcomes individuals to participate in song, study and prayer."

Bet Torah prides itself on having a strong worship community that participates each Shabbat morning.

Kabbalat Shabbat: Fridays, 6:30pm (Kabbalat Shabbat prayer book)
Shabbat morning: Saturdays 9:30am (Shabbat morning prayer book)
Saturday Mincha/Havdalah B’nai Mitzvah (seasonal, times vary) (Shabbat Mincha prayer book)
