Congregation Beth Shalom is a vibrant and diverse religious community. Our synagogue provides inspirational worship services every day of the year.
On Shabbat, choose from an array of spiritual experiences from our main sanctuary service to study minyan to Shabbat yoga; on Friday night join us for an intimate service to welcome Shabbat in the beautiful Feather Beit Midrash or choose to attend our monthly musical ShabbaTONE service. We have a daily minyan, morning and evening, which enables our congregants to begin and end their day in community prayer, and to support those in need of saying Kaddish during the mourning period or on the anniversary Yahrzeit of a loved one’s death. You can also live stream any of our Shabbat services, daily minyan or holiday services.
At Beth Shalom, we celebrate the holidays with joy and spirit, from Congregational dinners in the sukkah on Sukkot to the controlled and joyful chaos of Simchat Torah. The mirthful mayhem of Purim, featuring Megillah readings, a festive meal (seudah), and the ever-popular Megillah Mania, is one of the most anticipated events every year. And our late night study session, served with a traditional dairy meal, gives an opportunity for all to learn, schmooze and pray as we kick off the festival of Shavuot.
There are ample opportunities for congregants to participate in the religious life of CBS–from polishing the Torah silver before the high holy days to leading daily services and Shiva minyan, chanting Torah, ushering–and much more.
Our comprehensive bar/bat mitzvah training program uses a combination of classroom studies and individual tutoring to prepare our children for this important milestone in their lives. Our b’nai mitzvah are well-prepared with chanting from the Torah and haftarah and prayer leading, supplemented with an understanding of mitzvot, tzedakah and text through the “Three Pillars” program.
We invite you to become an active participant in CBS’ rich religious life. You will find warmth and welcome; spirit and joy within the walls of our Feather Beit Midrash and Kamensky Sanctuary.
