Shabbat & Holidays

List of 6 items.

  • A house of prayer

    Beth Tfiloh offers services and programs to meet your spiritual needs all week long. We offer a choice of Shabbat services with a number of “user-friendly” enhancements that make the Modern Orthodox service attractive. The addition of a halachically-approved Tzomet sound system and increased participation by women are innovations which aim to expand the appeal of this special house of worship and make Beth Tfiloh’s service truly unique on the American Jewish scene.
  • Dahan Sanctuary Services

    Dahan Sanctuary Services Dahan Sanctuary services provide a morning of high-spirited cantorial singing featuring the melodic baritone of Cantor Avi Albrecht, meaningful prayers and world-class sermons delivered by Rabbis Mitchell Wohlberg, and Chai Posner.
  • The BT Minyan

    The Minyan service on Shabbat morning and holidays in the Epstein Chapel provides a less formal service in a more intimate setting to enable Beth Tfiloh to serve the broadest cross section of the Jewish community. This service appeals to those who enjoy a more intimate, participatory service with a unique blend of contemporary and traditional Judaism.
  • Learn with Our Rabbis

    At BT, we never take a day off from learning Torah!
    • Before Saturday morning services, spend some time learning Torah with one of our rabbis. Delve into traditional texts and prepare for the Shabbat services.
    • Every Shabbat afternoon our rabbis lead a stimulating hour of Torah study before Mincha. Topics range from Jewish thought to the weekly Parshah to Jewish law.
  • Seudah Shelishit

    Even the end of Shabbat is a special time at BT. Join your friends for a spirited meal with learning, singing...and food
