Shabbat Outdoors: Erev Shabbat Service

The Beth Am community gathers each Friday night at 6:15 PM to welcome Shabbat (come at 6:00 PM to enjoy snacks and hors d’oeuvres). Our worship services are musical, participatory and informal in spirit; they focus on helping us experience the spiritual renewal, peace, joy and sense of celebration that Shabbat can bring. Services usually include a teaching or sermon by our clergy, congregants or a guest scholar.

Dana Marks, Beth Am Men President, will speak. During the service there will be special recognition of the BAM Advisory Council as well as an opportunity for Beth Am Men members to participate in the service.

For more information, check out Our Services. To enhance your enjoyment of Shabbat, please visit betham.org/shabbatcorner (including "Social Stories" in the Resource Box to prepare children ahead of time for what to expect during the Shabbat service). Beth Am also offers kid-friendly dinner and supervised play during every Friday night service. Learn more.

*This service will be live video streamed. By entering the Outdoor Chapel, you give Beth Am permission to record you.
**Prospective member Shabbat is every Friday in August.
