Shabbat Services

Everyone is welcome.

Beginning in September 2022, B'nai Or Shabbat Services will be held twice monthly, generally one Friday Kabbalat Service and one Shabbat Morning Service. In addition, "Pop-up Shabbats" (short, Friday night services), Havdalah gatherings, and weather permitting, Shabbat in Nature Services are frequently scheduled. The majority of our services are multi-accessible (Zoom and in-person).
