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.
Rev. Kathi McShane, Senior Pastor of Los Altos United Methodist Church, will give a sermon entitled "Responding to the Rise in Anti-Semitism."
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.
