Shabbat Service Schedule 2015 /5775


Temple B’nai Abraham offers a wide variety of Friday evening Shabbat worship experiences for everyone in the congregation. We encourage families to attend all our services throughout the year. 

Kabbalat Shabbat Service     Erev Shabbat Service  Tot Shabbat Service    Young Family Shabbat    Shabbat B'Shir   

Shabbat Morning: 10:00 AM Sanctuary
Junior Congregation: from 9:30 to 11:00 AM in the Brody Youth Lounge

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.

On Fridays, May 15 and June 19, Toby Singer, composer, guitarist and singer will join us for these Dress Down Shabbatot. Toby is a Brooklyn-based musician with a soulful voice and an indie sound. With the release of his latest album, “Hard Beast,” he’s been compared to a “cleaned up Nick Drake or a scrubbed Elliot Smith.” He has several of his own liturgical pieces to share, as well as new takes on old favorites. You can hear his music here,, and it is available on itunes.

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.
