shabbatCome experience the beauty of Shabbat at B’nai Jeshurun. Unplug and be uplifted!

Our Carlebach-style Friday evening service is filled with uplifting song and our new Shabbat Rocks! service is sure to get you singing (see more information below). The Friday evening service usually begins at 6:00 pm, but when it begins at 7:00 or 7:30 pm, we hold a festive oneg afterwards. Please view the Daily Minyan page for this week's current time.

Saturday morning is filled with activity ranging from our weekly Starbucks, Bread & Torah study, religious school, children’s services, and Open Tent, an alternative lay-led minyan. The centerpiece is the service in the David J. Moskowitz Sanctuary led by our fabulous Cantor Aaron Shifman and our terrific team of rabbis, which begins at 9:00 am. Experience the depth of prayer, hear the Torah chanted by our knowledgeable core of readers of all ages, wrestle with the meaning of our texts and traditions, and join us for a beautiful kiddush in the Gross Atrium following the service.
