Join us weekly for text study of the weekly Torah portion before the morning service. Start your morning with coffee, tea, and Torah as you learn with us. 

Shabbat Morning Service
9:30am
Congregation Beth El is a participatory community where our rabbis as well as skilled congregants and B’nai Mitzvah lead services and chant the weekly Torah portion and Haftarah.  The Torah reading follows the triennial cycle according to the Conservative movement.

Services generally end around noon and are followed by a kiddush luncheon for all ages where old friends and newcomers, children and adults, congregants and clergy gather together in celebration and community.

A weekly t’fillah experience and hands-on program for kids in K-5, full of prayer, games, and fun! Led by our rabbis and talented madrichim (teen helpers). Please note: Shabbat Club goes on hiatus for the summer. For more information, visit our calendar.

Shabbat Nashir
Join us for ruach (spirit) filled Torah and Musaf Services with full Torah reading. We will meet 2x per month starting at 10:15am; 1x in the sanctuary and 1x in the chapel. Na’shir means “we will sing,” and that is what we will do! The best singing is sparked by many voices joining together.
