At Congregation B’nai Israel we offer many opportunities for you to worship. Shabbat evening services are held on Fridays at 7:30 pm in our Cohen/Friedkin Sanctuary, unless otherwise noted. Our Shabbat worship is innovative and diverse and filled with song, joy, and spirituality. We also use our Shabbat services as a venue for learning, by engaging noted rabbis and scholars who share with us on timely issues.
On Saturday Shabbat mornings, we offer an intimate Torah Learning Service in our Hollander Family Chapel led by our clergy or guest rabbis from our community.
Our B’nai Mitzvah services are open to the public and are scheduled as needed.
Congregation B’nai Israel also offers a wide variety of what we like to call “Special Shabbats” that incorporate music, fun, and family-friendly experiences. Here is a sample of what we have to offer:
