Shabbat at Beth Tfiloh 

Shabbat is the highlight of the BT shul experience, where community members of all ages engage in exciting and meaningful opportunities that fulfill their spiritual and social needs. Discover why Beth Tfiloh is such a beautiful place to celebrate Shabbat each week. See below for complete Shabbat service and program options.

In our continued effort to balance modernity with halacha, Beth Tfiloh Congregation’s Shabbat services include the use of the halachically-approved Tzomet sound system to ensure that all who attend can follow along. Women are invited and encouraged to participate within the framework of halacha. 
All Beth Tfiloh Shabbat services are open to the community without regard to synagogue affiliation. For more information, please contact Dan Silien, Director of Shul Operations, at 410-413-2202 or See the Schedule of Services for Shabbat and weekday service times and Shabbat and Yom Tov candlelighting information.
