TBSEV provides a multitude of religious services throughout the week, including Erev Shabbat and Shabbat morning services, Sunday minyan, and Holy Day services. Services are led by our Rabbi Kenneth Leitner along with members of our congregation. Services are conducted in both Hebrew and English, and we offer a Spanish service on select Saturday mornings.
Friday evening services begin at 6:00 PM, and Saturday morning services begin at 9:00 AM. Many of our congregants, both men and women, participate in Torah and Haftarah readings, and Aliyot.
On the third Friday evening each month, we conduct a modified Family Shabbat service.
Shabbat luncheons following morning services are often sponsored by B’nai Mitzvah families or individuals as well as by the Men’s Club and Sisterhood.
The commentary is written by JTS faculty and rabbis from communities around the Conservative Movement. In addition, you can read archived commentary, and sign up for a weekly email.
If you would like to chant Torah or haftarah, please contact our Ritual Vice-President.
For many Jews, the words “Holy Days” evoke thoughts of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur: the shofar, kittels, introspection and renewal. The High Holy Days are certainly the most high profile and reverent of the yearly cycle.
With that in mind, we are proud to be able to observe the High Holy Days in our own sanctuary surrounded with our families, friends, and visitors. In addition, volunteers prepare meaningful and engaging programs for our children while adults are focused in services. Many of our members gather for Taslich and to Break the Fast at the shul, or in small groups at members’ homes. Services are free for members. Tickets for non-members are available by contacting the TBS-EV office.
The cycle of the Jewish is year is full and rich. In addition to the High Holy Days, we strive to meaningfully mark its diverse seasons. From TU b’Shevat to Pesach, from Yom Ha Shoah, to Simchat Torah, we take pause during these holy days to honor our collective history, give thanks for our many blessings, and to focus our intentions to the ongoing work of repairing our world.
On Sunday mornings when our Religious School is in session, we offer a Sunday Morning Minyan followed by adult education classes. Junior Congregation services are held monthly, and during holy days.
