Congregation Berith Sholom welcomes everyone to join us in celebrating Shabbat.
Berith Sholom is our spiritual home. As a house of prayer, we gather together in congregational worship to seek God’s presence, to share our lives as Jews, and to be part of the community of Israel. Some are seeking to discover, some to rediscover, all to experience the richness of our Jewish heritage. Because people come to Berith Sholom from a broad spectrum of backgrounds and lifestyles, our Reform worship services offer diversity in time and style, blending the traditional with the contemporary in prayer and song. Services are conducted in English and Hebrew, with English transliteration available for most Hebrew prayers. While worship is led by Rabbi Debora Gordon, members of our congregation are active Bima participants. Services often feature special musical programs, speakers and discussions of contemporary issues.
Friday night services begin at 7:30 and last just under an hour and a half. The service is festive and full of music and is appropriate for all ages.
After the service we gather as a community for kiddush and motzi at an informal Oneg Shabbat to meet and greet members and guests. We encourage members to sponsor an Oneg Shabbat. It's a great way to commemorate a family occasion, a milestone in your professional life, or to honor the memory of a loved one.
