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.
