Contemplative Shabbat Service
Starts: 5:30 pm
Ends: January 12, 2018 - 6:30 pm
Description: Please Join us from 5:30 to 6:30 PM as Jane Sloven, Sharon Newman, and Joseph Py lead us in welcoming Shabbat. Our worship is best described as contemplative, meditative, or transformational — and it combines styles of prayer rooted in both the Modern Reform and Jewish Renewal movements.

With familiar Friday evening prayers set to beautiful melodies, wordless melodies called niggunim, and short periods of silence between prayers, this service offers the opportunity to sink deeply into the serenity of Shabbat. Sharon plays guitar and leads us in song; Jane leads us into silent prayer; and Joe and Sharon co-lead a Kabbalistic Kirtan version of Dodi Li in which Joe plays the djembe (an African drum). We close with the joyful Shlomo Carlebach melody of Pitchu Li.
Shabbat Family Service
Starts: 6:00 pm
Ends: January 12, 2018 - 7:30 pm

Pay Member Dues

Bet Ha’am plays an important role in all of our lives, providing an open door for all during High Holidays and throughout the year.

The need for supporting the Annual Fund cannot be overstated. These unrestricted funds ensure we can cover our basic, day-to-day needs and meet our budgetary responsibilities, from salaries to building maintenance to Hebrew School supplies.

Membership dues do not cover the full cost of Bet Ha’am’s operations. We rely on the generous support of our members and friends to make Bet Ha’am available to all, regardless of ability to pay.
