pLEASE NOTE: pL Kabbalat Shabbat 6:30 PM

On the first and third Fridays of the month, an informal Kabbalat Shabbat service is held. This is the perfect service for those who would like to be able to enjoy a Shabbat meal with family or friends afterward or perhaps attend the Sisterhood Kabbalat Shabbat Dinner and speaker, which often follows the service. We are always looking for ways to make Temple B'nai Abraham a place where all of us feel as comfortable as we can, so the third Friday of every month there will be an informal... Dress Down (Casual Friday!) Kabbalat Shabbat.

Erev Shabbat Service 7:30 PM

On the second and fourth (and fifth) Fridays of the month, Erev Shabbat Services are conducted primarily in the Ross Sanctuary. The great sermonic and musical traditions of B'nai Abraham continue and are renewed in this beautiful and inspiring prayer service. The organ accompanies our prayers, and the voice of the congregation is regularly complemented by our choir. This service will typically feature a sermon, a speaker or a musical program.

Tot Shabbat from 6:00 to 6:30 PM

Throughout the year, preschoolers and their parents are encouraged to join us for a lively Tot Shabbat service. Led by our rabbi and cantor, we welcome Shabbat with singing, clapping, stories and celebration! Tot Shabbat is usually followed by a dinner, craft project, or special dessert.

Shabbat B’Shir: A Musical Shabbat:

Several times a year, our worship is enhanced by special guest musicians, cantors and/or composers, who bring unique musical perspectives to our services. 

Seeds of Sun have established themselves as the leading Israeli-Jazz ensemble in North America, blending music written in Israel in a Jazz and World Music setting with original Israeli Jazz. The band has played on prestigious stages such as the Kennedy Center in Washington and the 92nd Street Y in New York, and has traveled as far as Vietnam, Hong Kong and The Philippines introducing a new and exciting sound of Israel to the world.

The ensemble also performs on the major stages of the American Jewish World, including the URJ Biennials, Jewish festivals nationwide, and Major Cultural Centers across America. Compositions by Mattan Klein have earned Seeds of Sun prestigious awards at The John Lennon Songwriting Contest and The USA Songwriting Competition.
