Shabbat Morning Worship

Each Shabbat Morning we have several  opportunities for members and friends alike to come together for a participatory and highly engaging service. 

Kahal Shabbat Morning Worship

Kahal meets at 9:30 a.m. in the Weiner Room (lower level, near courtyard) for a full Shacharit (morning) service. Kahal means community, and this intergenerational Shabbat morning worship service offers a weekly opportunity to pray, sing and study in a lively, family-friendly environment. Each week, a thought-provoking discussion of the Torah portion is led by a Kahal volunteer, Rabbi London, or the Director of Lifelong Learning, Marci Dickman. Sign up here for a Kahal Honor.

Children are encouraged to join Kahal for as much or as little as they would like, with babysitting always available whenever they need a break, at no charge. Services are followed by Kiddush each week, and on the last Saturday of each month, a potluck vegetarian lunch.

There is also a Kahal list serve that often posts notices about Kahal as well as upcoming b'nai mitzvah and/or follow up postings from a given D'var Torah.  To add your name, please contact the This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Shabbat Morning Minyan

Each Shabbat morning a worship service and lively discussion of the week’s Torah reading is held in room 208 (located on the second floor), beginning at 9:30 a.m.. Led by lay Hebrew readers, the service mixes prayer and song followed by participatory discussion that focuses on interpretation aimed at both historic and contemporary understanding of the Parsha.  A festive Kiddish follows.

Originally designed in the 1960' by Beth Emet member Herbert Hubert, the service includes a blend of  spirituality, intellectuality, and camaraderie.
