Shabbat at BT

Beth Tfiloh’s weekly Shabbat services provide a choice of services with a number of “user friendly” enhancements. A full complement of children’s services and babysitting make the Modern Orthodox service especially attractive to families with young children. The addition of a halachically approved Tzomet sound system, a Mechitza, and increased participation by women, are innovations which aim to expand the appeal of this unique house of worship. Inspiring, “talk of the town” sermons by Rabbi Mitchell Wohlberg and the melodic baritone of Cantor Avi Albrecht, make Beth Tfiloh’s service truly unique on the American Jewish scene.
An alternative weekly Shabbat service, "The BT Minyan", is led by our rabbis in the Epstein Chapel, with Beth Tfiloh’s unique blend of contemporary and traditional Judaism. This service appeals to young couples, singles, college students and alumni of our day school as well as all those who enjoy a more intimate, participatory service.
Our popular Youth Services include the following:
  • Weekly babysitting prior to children's services
  • Weekly PreSchool Cookie Minyan for children 3 and under with a parent, led by Morah Temi Kiwala and Morah Terry Alpert
  • Weekly Mini-Minion for children ages 4 through Kindergarten, led by Morah Temi Kiwala, Morah Jody Leavey and Morah Becky Gordon
  • Weekly Kid Cong for Grades 1 through 4 led by Mr. Brian Singer
  • Monthly Shabbat programs with our Rabbis for Bar and Bat Mitzvah families
  • Weekly Middle School Boys Minyan led by Joe Schwartz
  • Weekly Middle School Girls Service led by Yarden Salansky and Abby Lerman
  • Weekly Teen Minyan for high school students led by Stan Lustman
Shabbat and holiday family programs are calendared throughout the year including Friday night Shabbat dinners, Shabbat pajama parties, and Havdalah programs.
In addition, a monthly Minyan Meyuchad is led by Mrs. Susan Coleman for special needs adults.
