Shabbat Morning @Emanuel

Shabbat Morning @Emanuel

Our regular Shabbat morning service meets from 10:00 AM until about 12:15 PM in Bess P. Maltz Center. Led by our rabbis and cantor, the service is a thoughtful, contemplative adult service. The service has a traditional feel, with most of the liturgy sung in Hebrew, accompanied by meaningful English poetry and commentary. Every word is transliterated so even non-Hebrew readers can fully participate in the prayer. Torah study is interactive and engaging, and provides stimulating discussion. Congregants chant Torah and Haftarah and often people celebrate life-cycle events within the context of the Minyan community: an important birthday, a prenuptial blessing, and a wedding anniversary. Services are always followed by a Kiddush lunch. The Minyan is nurtured by a Worship Care Committee that pays attention to deepening the sense of community among those who have become part of the congregation and welcoming newcomers into the community.

See below for weekly details.

We so appreciate our greeters every week, todah rabah! If you are interested in celebrating a simcha at our minyan service, please contact Cantor Lizzie Weiss! CantorWeiss@tebh.org

Each Saturday, we invite you to join us for Expression of Soul.

Expression of Soul is our attempt to uncover and discover what our physical relationship is to our Soul. We do this through quiet meditation, chant, and conversation. Meditation, for those who would like to sit, is deep and lasts 25 minutes. Those wishing to join us in chant are invited. In chant, we look to discover and bring the intentionality (Kavanah) of prayer into our lives. Conversation may revolve around the Parshat/Haftarah of the week, prayer, and/or esoteric Jewish writings. Meditation and Chant are our inner work; Conversation is our attempt to understand ourselves at a deeper level.

The first Saturday of every month involves meditation, chant, and conversation from 10:00 – 11:00 am. All other Saturdays involve an abbreviated meditation-only format from 9:30 – 10:00 am.  



If you would like to sponsor a Minyan Lunch, notify us of a special occasion, or would like to request a special honor, please contact Cantor Lizzie Weiss at CantorWeiss@tebh.org.
