Beth Emet comes together for Shabbat, a time to find peace and rejuvenation.

Through worship, communal Shabbat meals, and study, we create the time and space to connect with ourselves, our heritage, and one another. See the Beth Emet calendar for the service schedule and the links to join services. Kabbalat Shabbat Services start at 6:30 each Friday and are also Live-streamed and recorded for our Facebook page. Our Saturday Morning Minyan (Kahal) meets weekly on Saturday mornings at 9:30.


“The meaning of the Sabbath is to celebrate time rather than space. Six days a week we live under the tyranny of things of space; on the Sabbath we try to become attuned to holiness in time.

It is a day on which we are called upon to share in what is eternal in time, to turn from the results of creation to the mystery of creation, from the world of creation to the creation of the world.”

Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel

Kabbalat Shabbat Services (Fridays at 6:30 pm)

Kabbalat Shabbat services follow online for uplifting music, meaningful prayer, inspiration from our clergy, and thoughtful words from special speakers. Is it your birthday? On the first Friday of the month, we offer blessings for those who celebrate birthdays in the coming month!

To include a name on the Mi Sheberach (healing) list and/or if you are observing a yahrzeit (memorial observance), please contact the office.

Hoping to attend virtually? Friday night services are livestreamed each week, and an archive of services can be accessed at all times.

Kahal Shabbat Service (Saturdays at 9:30 am)

The word kahal means community.

Kahal is a place where everyone is welcome — for communal worship, reflection, Torah study. Our highly participatory Kahal Shabbat morning service embraces all with heart-warming music and thought-provoking Torah study.

The Kahal Shabbat Service starts at 9:30 am and participants arrive throughout the morning. The service concludes around 11:45 am followed by Kiddush and socializing. In addition to traditional Shabbat morning prayers, the service includes:

  • Torah reading by individuals from the Beth Emet community
  • A thought-provoking discussion of the weekly Torah portion or Haftarah, typically led by a Beth Emet volunteer or a member of the clergy

Volunteers sign up online or in-person to read or chant blessings (in Hebrew or English), open the ark, carry the Torah, dress or raise the Torah, chant from the Torah, read or chant the Haftarah, or lead the discussion of the week’s Torah or Haftarah portion.

Being called to the Torah can be a meaningful way to mark a special occasion or life milestone. Sign up for a Kahal honor.

Shabbat Celebrations for Young Families (Monthly)

Special Shabatot (Plural for Shabbat)

We love our weekly Shabbatot, and throughout the year, we mix it with several special Shabatot! On the first of each month, we offer birthday blessings to all members of our community who have a birthday that month!

During the summer and warm months we hold Shabbat Bachutz (outside) at a Park nearby. It is such a lovely way to enjoy our community outdoors.

Cantor Young has introduced our Congregation to the music-filled Soul Spark Shabbat. Where once a month, we will join with a rich Instrument service, and you won’t want to miss it.
