B'Yachad Together: An Inclusive Shabbat Service

BYachadFlyerFinalIn the Bible, God states, “My house shall be a house for all peoples.”

We decided that we should live up to that commandment.
Therefore, we have created a new program called "B’Yachad Together" – an inclusive Shabbat experience.

Families with special needs will come together to celebrate Shabbat in an accessible environment designed to embrace a range of sensory, language, and learning differences.

We are proud to offer this first program on Friday May 4th, 5:30 – 7:00pm.

Friday Night Services

We celebrate Shabbat with Erev Shabbat services every Friday night of the year. We frequently hold Shabbat dinners before services, a great way to get together with your family and to meet new friends. Check the calendar for the specific times and service.

If you're new to North Shore Synagogue, new to services or just visiting, be sure to introduce yourself to one of our Board members or our Friday Night Regulars – easily identifiable by their badges.

All of our Shabbat services are open to the community, whether to say kaddish for a loved one, to offer a prayer of healing or just to observe Shabbat.  You can find the text and recordings of Shabbat prayers here.

Classical Erev Shabbat Services

Typically two or three times a month we hold classical Friday night Erev Shabbat Services. Services are led by our rabbis and cantors, with beautiful and moving music and prayers that will help you relax and connect after a hectic week. We use the Reform movement's Mishkan T'filah prayer book which offers a variety of Hebrew prayers and English readings.

Shabbat Alive!

Once a month, our Shabbat Alive! service will reenergize your soul. Join our rabbis and cantors along with some terrific contemporary musicians for Shabbat Alive! for a musical service that will get your feet tapping and your hands clapping.

Family Services

Once a month, join our talented Junior Choir for a wonderful Shabbat experience – whether you come with your family or not. Specially designed for school-aged children, this service is offered to the entire congregation.

Tot Shabbat

Designed for the 0 to pre-K crowd, each month we hold an early service with plenty of songs, story-telling, dancing, music and fun, usually followed by a Tot Oneg or a dinner. It's a great way to get your child comfortable in the sanctuary and to learn pleasure of celebrating Shabbat. Older siblings are more than welcome! Tot Shabbat services are held at 5:30 pm.

Saturday Mornings

Service-in-the-Round

Each Saturday throughout the year, we hold an intimate service-in-the-round. It may be led by a clergy or lay person, and provides a warm participatory experience. We read the Torah have a brief d'var Torah discussing an interesting section of the portion. Some people come weekly, some to observe a yahrzeit or just to observe Shabbat. No experience is necessary. Dress is casual.

Service-in-the-round starts around 10:15, following Torah study.

B'nai Mitzvah Services

We hold services in our sanctuary whenever we celebrate a Bar or Bat Mitzvah. Our Bat and Bat Mitzvah students along with the rabbi and cantor lead a beautiful service. B'nai Mitzvah services are open to the community. We appreciate more "Shabbat appropriate" dress.
