Welcome to Our Shabbat Learning Community!

Beth Sholom is a friendly, welcoming Conservative synagogue where people from all walks of life find a comfortable home. Spirited davening, inspired singing, and congregational participation are hallmarks of our worship. As an egalitarian synagogue with a traditional (yet modern!) approach to Judaism, we ask both men and women to wear head coverings, available at the synagogue. Tallit are worn by men and many women.

On Shabbat mornings, you can choose from a variety of spiritual and learning activities in addition to services in our main sanctuary.

  • Monthly Mishpacha is a monthly fun learning experience for kids and their families. 
  • T'filatenu, or Junior Congregation, meets weekly for grades one through seven.  
  • TropeClub gathers together grades four and up twice a month to learn how to chant Torah.
  • Starbucks Shabbat, on the first Shabbat of the month, adults gather at 9am for an adult-oriented Jewish learning session prior to services, with thought-provoking discussions, good coffee, and a little sweet nosh. 

Traditional, spirited Friday evening services are held once a month, when a family will "Adopt a Shabbat," hosting a dairy/parve potluck dinner at their home after services.  Click here to volunteer to host or click here to RSVP.

Beth Sholom also recently introduced Musical Kabbalat Shabbat, an ecstatic musical meditative Kabbalat Shabbat service that uses musical instruments and creative innovations to create a highly spiritual and fun Kabbalat Shabbat experience.  Click here for more information.

Babysitting is available so your children can have their own Shabbat experience while you attend services. Babysitting is available every Shabbat morning under the experienced, warm, and nurturing care of “Miss Susan,” aka Susan Alexander Gross.

And did we mention lunch?

Every Shabbat morning is capped by the incomparable Beth Sholom Kiddush Lunch accompanied by singing and bensching (singing the grace after meals) with our rabbi. And you’re always invited.

So, join us on Shabbat—whether or not you know all the prayers and rituals. You'll leave knowing a little bit more and with a feeling of peace that only Shabbat can provide.
