Beth Emet - The Free Synagogue

Beth Emet is a diverse, multigenerational Reform community with a dynamic approach to Judaism. Our congregation seeks to create a spiritually vibrant, socially conscious, intellectually challenging, and deeply caring environment firmly rooted in Jewish tradition and values.

The Weekday Minyan meets every Sunday morning at 8:45 a.m. (9:00 a.m. in summer) to daven the weekday Shacharit (morning) service. The Weekday Minyan meets in the Chapel next to the Sanctuary and offers a more intimate opportunity to pray with the Beth Emet community. If the Beth Emet building is closed, the Weekday Minyan is held at a member's home. Please check the calendar for up-to-date information. To be added to the Weekday MInyan listserv, contact Wendy

The Weekday Minyan service explores our ritual, liturgical, and musical traditions in a welcoming setting for people new to weekday prayer while providing a deeper level of sophistication for people with more experience. Participants are encouraged to wear a tallit and tefilin if they so choose, and community members are available fifteen minutes before the service begins to assist newcomers with these rituals.

The Weekday Minyan is followed by a light breakfast of bagels and coffee.
