FridayNightArkShabbat is a time to both celebrate and seek personal renewal as we end the week and welcome the day of rest. Reflecting the wide range of Jewish music that enhances prayer and to meet the different needs of our community, Temple Beth Am offers a variety of Shabbat services:

On Friday night, we offer a variety of musically-focused services which include light refreshments and a chance to meet others in the congregation at an oneg. Saturday morning services feature a lively discussion of Torah and often include a Bar or Bat Mitzvah.

Services for children through 1st grade:
Twice a month we also offer fun and engaging services for the very young - with age-appropriate stories, dancing, and even sitting on the bimah - on the 1st Friday evening and the 4th Saturday morning. Both are led by one of our rabbis and the amazing Shoshanah Stombaugh, teacher extraordinaire, who is an expert in welcoming children to the joy of Shabbat. Go to our Calendar for specific dates.
