Shabbat Services – Come Celebrate Shabbat at Temple B’nai Or
Guests, Jewish and not, are most welcome! All Shabbat Services are open to the public.
This innovative schedule of services offers a variety of worship modes and prayer experiences throughout the month. We understand that everyone comes to worship with differing prayer needs, often based on age, aesthetics, or type of spiritual sensitivity. This schedule has allowed more of our congregants to become part of the worshipping community at Temple B’nai Or.
SUMMER SERVICE SCHEDULE: For the months of July and August, our Friday evening Shabbat Service is always at 7:00 PM. Weather permitting, we worship outside in the exterior Gallery courtyard. During inclement weather, we worship in the Beit Midrash.
|1st Friday||Shabbat Mishpacha||6:30 pm||Family Friendly service with birthday blessings|
|2nd Friday||Torah Explorers||5:45 pm||A brief happy service for children aged Pre-school to Grade 1, with songs, and prayers followed by Shabbat dinner. It’s so much more than a “Tot Shabbat”|
|Torah Shabbat||7:30 pm||Shabbat Service with a Torah reading|

|5th Friday||Shabbat Hamishee||7:30 pm||A brief service where we explore alternative ways to worship|
