Services

Services are held at 6:30 p.m. ALMOST every Friday.  ​​

 

“Second at Seven Thirty” - On the second Friday of each month ONLY, beginning October 11, services will be held at 7:30 p.m. (Some of our members find the 6:30 p.m. service does not allow time for Shabbat dinner or they have trouble getting to services by 6:30 p.m. Therefore, the decision to have one service each month at the later time.) 

 

Student Participation in Services Resumes in September for Shabbat and Sunday Morning Services

 

1. Third Fridays, 6:30 p.m. BSBH Family Kabbalat Shabbat - Sunday Judaica classes lead services along with Rabbi Feingold from a set outline during the school year. Upcoming class dates are:

 

• December 20 - Chaverim Class (Grades K-2)

Sundays at 10:30 a.m. individual students from each Hebrew class lead services with Rabbi Feingold.

• Our Hebrew students each have a time to lead services on their own with Rabbi Feingold in the 10:30 a.m. Sunday services. Consult your child’s teacher so that you can be sure to attend when your child is leading. All BHT members are welcome to this weekday service.

 

3. Hebrew Class Shabbat service

• Each Hebrew class, levels Alef through Hey, participate in a Hebrew class Shabbat service once a year. During this service students lead the new prayers they have been learning in class and have practiced for one month leading up to that Shabbat.

Family Services

The first Friday night of each month is a Family Kabbalat Shabbat, geared toward young children, one half hour in length. There is an early catered pre-Oneg Shabbat, beginning at 5:45 p.m. with communal candle-lighting.  We have acquired a beautiful new prayer book for these services.

The third Friday night of each month during the school year is a BSBH Family Kabbalat Shabbat, when the school age families are encouraged to attend, and students co-lead the services with Rabbi Feingold. This service features lots of camp-style songs often led by songleader Ari Goldstein. There is an early catered pre-Oneg Shabbat, beginning at 5:45 p.m. with communal candle lighting.

What are “Family Services?”  

These are services geared toward families with children and feature upbeat music, children’s prayer language, maracas for the kids to help make music, movement, and a story. If you think your child is too young or not ready to sit through a service, think again! This interactive service is brief. Children are not expected to sit still, and there is always fresh challah and goodies before, and a glass of wine for the parents. Come and try it!

A “Birthday Blessing” and a small gift for kids with birthdays in that month are provided at all first Friday, Family Kabbalat Shabbat services.

The second and fourth Fridays are full services, including a Torah service and sermon, or, alternatively, a guest speaker or a discussion after services.  There is a traditional Oneg Shabbat following services, hosted by BHT volunteers, as in the past.

Fifth Fridays are HOME Shabbatot at the outer reaches of our geographic membership spread, in Racine, Western Kenosha or Lake County, IL. Check back soon for the next date and location.

Shabbat morning services are held twice a month on the first and third Shabbat, after Torah study at 9:15 a.m.  A catered Kiddish Bagel Brunch follows services.
