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.

VIRTUAL/COVID SERVICE SCHEDULE: Due to the COVID pandemic, all TBO Shabbat Services are being held via Zoom.  You can also join us on YouTube.  You can access an online prayer book, if needed.  Friday Evening Shabbat services begin at 7:00 pm and are followed by an online Oneg at 8:15 pm on Zoom.

High Holy Day Services

Join us at Temple B’nai Or for the High Holy Days. Members are welcome to purchase tickets for visiting family members, and we proudly participate in the JFED Metropass program. Tickets are not required for the Family Service on Rosh Hashanah, the Family Service on Yom Kippur and the Concluding Service on Yom Kippur.

As we approach the High Holy Days of 5781/2021, and as Temple B’nai Or incrementally begins to re-open thanks to the increase in Covid vaccinations, our Re-Entry Task Force and Fusion Worship Task Force are making plans.  They are working to ensure that simultaneous in-person-at-Temple and remote-at-home services will be accessible, intimate and inclusive. These plans will be announced soon.
