Shabbat Services
We're honored to welcome Rabbi Meir Schweiger, former Mashiach Ruchani at Pardes, who will be giving the Drasha at the end of Shabbat morning services.

Shabbat services and weekday minyanim have returned indoors to Beth Jacob for masked, socially-distanced services. We are now organizing all morning and evening minyans throughout the week and need your support. Please join us!

To attend weekday Minyanim or Shabbat services, please sign up at Daily Minyan Sign-up.

Children old enough to remain masked and seated next to an adult for the length of a service may attend with them.

This week Kiddush is sponsored by Phil and Daphna Ross in honor of Rabbi Meir Schweiger, former Rosh Yeshiva of the Pardes Institute of Jewish Studies who joins us this Shabbat to teach Torah in person with our community; by Dena and Bryce Mendelsohn in honor of Na’aman Kam who has been visiting our community and expertly read Torah as we returned to indoor services; and by Beth Jacob in honor of all of our 2021 graduates!

Shabbat Youth Activities
Groups 2.0!!!
As we continue to advance in our new normal, we're moving up our youth programming to a mid-service start time! Drop your children off in Rav Shua's back yard starting at 9:45AM and they'll find you at Kiddush after services. We'll play games, learn about the parsha and have our own davening. (We continue to run masked and exclusively outdoor programming.)

Groups are currently for our tots through 2nd grade. As we plan to scale up and expand our offerings for older ages through the summer, all kids are welcome to join their parents in the main sanctuary. 

We hope to see your kids there! Please RSVP to Rav Shua!
