Shabbat

Our doors are open to all who seek to worship, learn and serve the community.

Services at  Congregation Beth Shalom are a learning experience.  During the service members of the Minyan are encouraged to raise their hand if they have a question regarding the structure of the service, the meaning of a prayer, the interpretation of the Torah portion or a comment regarding the practice of Judaism.

Our goal is to broaden the understanding of Judaism.  And through better understanding establish each individual’s relationship with G-d.  Join us to experience our interactive service.  Come learn with us.

Shabbat Morning 9:30 AM followed by a Kiddush Lunch.

Worshipping on Shabbat

Attending via Livestream

Please contact us for the livestreaming link before Shabbat.  We do not check email on Shabbat or holidays.

Please note that the Beth Shalom offices close at 2PM Pacific time on Fridays, and we cannot guarantee a response after that time. If you would like the link for the livestream, please contact us Friday morning or earlier in the week!

On Shabbat, our communal practice is to refrain from creating a permanent record (which is akin to writing), so we kindly ask that you not photograph or video record the livestream, but instead enjoy it in real-time only. Beth Shalom members can also find the livestreaming link in our weekly “Beth Shalom this Week” emails, sent every Sunday. The link is the same for all shabbat services. Information on livestreaming in a Shabbat-friendly way here.
