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 us at Ritual–VP@congregationbethtorah.org or call the Rabbi’s office (972.234.1542 ext 227) Monday through Friday, 8AM to 3PM.

TOT SHABBAT

We have a special service for the youngest members and their parents, grandparents or special friends on the second and fourth *Saturdays of the month, 10:30 AM to 11:45 AM that introduces them to the joy of Shabbat through story–telling and music. This family friendly celebration is designed for children from infancy through 5 year–olds, and the big people who love them. We use puppets, costumes, musical instruments, and creative movement to get the whole family in the spirit of Shabbat. We will start back in person on September 11th.

PRE–COVID DAILY MINYAN

Daily minyan is held every Sunday at 9:00 AM and every Monday at 6:45 AM and 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.
