Gather all the people together. Deuteronomy 31:12
Shabbat and Holiday worship at Congregation Beth Am is a joyful, uplifting, spiritual gathering of our community. Our services are filled with opportunities for personal soulful and theological connections.
OUR 7:30 PM EREV SHABBAT SERVICE
Congregation Beth Am’s Friday night service recognizes our need to stop and take a breath as our everyday world spins faster and faster. Our “Cheers-ful” atmosphere guarantees that CBA is a place “where everyone knows your name.” We sing, laugh, and take time to consider the priorities of life. We sing together and study an aspect of Jewish Tradition that speaks to the world in which we live. Our family-friendly service is an opportunity for members and visitors to come together to deepen the experience of Shabbat with joy.
OUR 9:30 AM SHABBAT MORNING SERVICE
Our Shabbat morning service is participatory: the congregation sings, we discuss the weekly Torah portion and its applicability to the world today, and we have lay involvement on every level. The warm, welcoming “kid-friendly” service includes a brief interlude that allows members of the congregation and guests to meet each other.
OUR 9:30 AM SUNDAY MORNING MINYAN SERVICE
The minyan represents the entire Jewish People across the boundaries of geography and time. This quorum of 10 Jewish men and women (over the age of 12) is required so participants may recite Kaddish.
We celebrate all life cycle events as a congregational family: Bar/Bat Mitzva, wedding aufrufs, baby-namings, birthdays and anniversaries, and any celebration of life imaginable.
