Community Shabbat Service
Tefillot shel Shabbat
Beth Torah is a participatory and egalitarian synagogue, where congregants lead services with Rabbi Zelony, and serve as weekly Torah readers. Men and women share equally in all aspects of religious observance, and you will frequently find recent Bar and Bat-Mitzvah “graduates” on the bimah leading or reading.
Community Shabbat services at Beth Torah are primarily congregant led and there are many opportunities to get involved. For more information on leading the services, please contact Chuck Smith at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the Rabbi’s office (972.234.1542 ext 227)
Friday night services begin at 7:30 PM each week unless otherwise noted on our calendar.
At our Community Shabbat service on Friday evening, we welcome Shabbat with prayer and song. For Shabbat services & candle lighting times click here to return the home page. Friday evening services are approximately one hour in length.
Festive First Fridays
Join us on the first Friday of each month for a special service celebrating upcoming birthdays and anniversaries.
Shabbat Morning services begin at 9:30 AM each week.
Held in our sanctuary, our services use Siddur Sim Shalom and Etz Hayim chumash. Transliterations are available to help anyone participate. Shabbat morning services are usually finished around noon and followed by a Kiddush lunch for all.
Sundays at 8:30 AM and Mondays at 6:45 AM (Monday times change if a festival or secular holiday).
Our morning minyan is a cornerstone of who we are; we meet the needs of our community through supporting one another in a time of mourning and saying kaddish.
If you’re not ready to make a weekly commitment, please consider attending once or twice during the month of your birthday.
Monday Parsha Study
The Talmud with Rabbi Zelony
The Talmud is the foundational text upon which all modern forms of Judaism stand. Come explore, spar with, and make meaning of this sacred book. Open to all learners. Hebrew text is provided but class discussions will be based on English translation. Every Monday after minyan (time will vary on holidays).
Junior Congregation meets on Saturday mornings and is geared toward children K through 5th Grade. Led by Eli Davidsohn, a highly regarded talent in the Dallas Jewish community, this service teaches younger members of our community the core elements of Shabbat worship in a musically rich context.
We have a special service for our toddlers and their parents, grandparents, or special friends on the second and fourth Saturday mornings of the month at 11:00 AM. Singing, dancing, storytelling and fun-filled ritual education entertain, enthrall and envelop our youngest members and the future of our congregation. For additional information contact email@example.com.
Service transliterations are available in the foyer outside the sanctuary for both Friday evening and Saturday morning services. The transliterations are also available for download.
