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.

TBO Shabbat Services are being held both via Zoom and In-Person. To join us in-person, masks are currently optional, but encouraged.  We have three seating areas in the sanctuary: 1) open seating for fully-vaccinated members, 2) for those with one or more members of your family who are not vaccinated, 3) an area for those who are vaccinated but wish to maintain social distance. Pre-registration for in-person Shabbat Services is strongly encouraged. Pre-register here. 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.

Torah Explorers – For All Families with Children Up To Age Seven

Families and their young children — Temple members and non-members alike — are invited to celebrate Shabbat with themed learning activities, T’filah, and song! The third Friday of every month at 5:30 PM. Pizza dinner is served at 6:30 PM, followed by our lovely Shabbat services, if you wish to stay. Free and open to the public. Pre-register each month for Torah Explorers here.
