Family First Shabbat First Friday of every month
Our first Friday of the month is dedicated to the youngest members of our community and their families. Our Family First Shabbat, while designed for young families as a shorter service with music, dancing, and story time, is a wonderfully joyful Shabbat for all ages to experience. This multigenerational Shabbat is sure to bring a smile to your face.
During the summer months, from May to September, join us outdoors with a picnic blanket, something yummy to eat, and your four legged friend (if you have one), for our informal and magical Family First Shabbat at the Park.
Nishma Second Saturday of every month
Nishma, Hebrew for “we will listen,” is a beautifully-constructed Jewish world music experience. This incredible service, which is a hybrid of Reform and Conservative traditions, was conceptualized and designed by our wonderful Rabbi Chabon, where she is in her truest form. The music is spectacular with guitar accompaniment by Lisa Zeiler, the Torah reading is always moving, the teachings Rabbi weaves through the service are enriching, and her sermons will leave you thinking of our world in a slightly different way. This service is truly magical!
Shir Joy Third Friday of every month
Our Shir Joy service is a powerful musical experience featuring Rabbi Chabon’s angelic voice accompanied by dynamic professional musicians on the bimah. This service is sure to lift our individual and collective spirits as we enter the space of shabbat, renewed and inspired.
Community-Led Shabbat Fourth Friday of every month
Once a month, we come together on Zoom, each one of us in our homes, in a service where our congregants share in the experience of leading our community. This service encapsulates the warmth, tenderness, and care that we hold in our community for one another as we celebrate and rejoice in each other. Each service highlights different members of our community who rise to the occasion of sharing their talents and love through singing, chanting, reading, creative writing, or playing an instrument for us.
Kabbalat Shabbat Fifth Friday of relevant months
Join Rabbi Chabon for a virtual service to welcome Shabbat into our homes. This early service will end just in time for you to light candles and have a nice Shabbat meal with your family.
At Congregation B’nai Tikvah, music guides and uplifts our prayer and brings us together in a place of peace. So turn up the volume and enjoy some music from our Rabbi Cantor here or, better yet, come and enjoy it with us…
