EVERYONE is welcome to attend services. Whether or not you are a member of TBS, we encourage you to join us!
Friday Evening 7:30 pm
Join us every Erev Shabbat as we learn, sing, and gather together to end a week of hard work and to contemplate our many blessings. Our service incorporates a wide range of traditions that can be spiritually enriching regardless of one’s background. In addition, the inclusion of lay-leaders in the services further enhances the strength of our community.
Niggun-Niks (before Shabbat Service)
7:00pm – 1st Friday
For so many of us, music is at the heart of our connection to being Jewish. Here is a chance to engage “niggunim” – melodies – as a spiritual practice.
Musical Shabbat with ‘The ShabboTones’
7:30 pm – 3rd Friday
This alternative Kabbalat Shabbat service is offered as a non-traditional way to ease into Shabbat through engaging music, contemplative readings, guided meditation and thoughtful discussion. Please come join our circle on the Bima!
Shabbat Morning Service
1st and 3rd Saturday Morning 10:00 am
We gather together to continue our observance of Shabbat by reading from the Torah. Again, the increased role of lay leadership in these services has helped to spur deeper meaning for the growing TBS community who attend these services. Torah services are a wonderful opportunity for learning.
At TBS, participants may use their choice of traditional or Reconstructionist Aliyah Blessings. Either the traditional blessings or the blessings offered in the Reconstructionist Siddur may be chanted when saying the blessings before and after the Torah reading. Both versions are available in the Prayer Guide menu on the Resources page.
Wednesday Morning 8:00 am
Morning minyan meets every week and is followed by coffee and nosh while we have a brief Torah study or community discussion on a variety of Jewish-related topics. With or without tefillin, all are encouraged to attend.
Jewish Spiritual Practices
Saturday Morning 9:00 am
Deepen your spiritual life through learning specific spiritual practices and working with a peer group to support your work. The class will take place on Wednesday mornings after minyan, between 9-10. Led by Rabbi Eli.
