Saturday Morning

Every Shabbat morning we embrace communal worship and rousing Torah study.

Torah Study: 9:15-10:15 AM
TBA’s popular weekly Torah Study has restarted as an exciting community adventure: instead of focusing on the weekly portion, in 5773 we began with Genesis 1:1 and will work our way each week through the entire text. It may take a few years because it will include commentary, lively discussion, and a chance to go deeper into the text. You are invited, whatever your skill set, to join us at any time during the year in the K'hilah Center and be part of reading the whole Torah.

Shabbat Morning Service: 10:30 AM
We have a service open to the entire community every Saturday morning, whether led by our B'nai Mitzvah or lay leaders.

B'nai Mitzvah services include our choir, a sermon by the rabbi, and community members participating in Torah reading and honors, as well as those that the B'nai Mitzvah families are honoring. We end with a kiddush lunch, hosted by the B'nai Mitzvah families, for all who attend services.

Shabbat Morning Minyan: 10:30 AM
On Saturdays when there is no B’nai Mitzvah, we have intimate and musical services led by lay leaders, which include an interactive rabbinic teaching. Since these services are followed by a dairy potluck, bring something to share and make new friends at these beautiful, more intimate, services.


Upcoming Events:

Adult B’nai Mitzvah Service and Luncheon
Saturday, March 17, 10:30 AM with Kiddush lunch to follow 
Temple Beth Am Sanctuary
Our tradition teaches that one can come to Torah as a Bar or Bat Mitzvah at any age. Join with our 2018 class who have been working passionately for the past two years to learn Hebrew and explore Jewish learning, spirituality, wisdom, and community together. The class will lead services, read from the Torah, and share d’vrei Torah as part of a wonderful Shabbat morning service. The congregation is invited for a catered Kiddush lunch following services. 

For their mitzvah project, the Adult B’nai Mitzvah class set up an apartment for a recently arrived refugee family from Bhutan through the International Rescue Committee in January.

Our outstanding 2018 graduates are Michael Berman, Henry Boyar, Terri Buysse, Rebecca Hoff, Jo Ann Hornsten, Andrew Kempler, Anya LevySmith, Joanne Lipson, Marj Press, Connie Rock, Raphaela Warschauer, and Karen Wolf.


Tot Shabbat

4th Saturday of the month at 9:15 AM
This special introduction to Shabbat takes place in the Temple Beth Am Sanctuary and includes story, dancing, and a mini-Torah reading. The service is led by one of our rabbis and the amazing Shoshana Stombaugh, teacher extraordinaire, who is an expert in welcoming children to the joy of Shabbat. If it is your first time at Tot Shabbat, contact Alexis Kort in advance and she or a temple member will meet you at the event and introduce you to the other participating families.
