This Fall: “Second at Seven Thirty” - On the second Friday of each month ONLY, services will be held at 7:30 p.m. instead of the usual 6:30 p.m. to allow families to have Shabbat dinner at home prior to services and to accommodate schedules that prevent members from attending the 6:30 service 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:

• September 21 - Midrasha Class (Grades 7-9)

• October 18 - Kehillah Class (Grade 6)

• November 15 - Giborim Class (Grades 3-4)

• 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. These class-led services will begin in December.


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 candlelighting. We have acquired a beautiful new prayer book for these services. 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.


BSBH Family Kabbalat Shabbat: The third Friday night of each month during the school year is a BSBH Family Kabbalat Shabbat during which the school-age families are encouraged to attend, and students colead the services with Rabbi Feingold. These services feature lots of camp-style songs and Ari Goldstein is often our song leader. Early catered pre-Oneg Shabbat, beginning at 5:45 p.m. with communal candle lighting. Traditional Shabbat Services are held on the second and fourth Fridays and include 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. Home Shabbatot take place on the fifth Friday of the month at the outer reaches of our geographic membership spread, in Racine, Western Kenosha or Lake County, IL. Watch the eNews for details on the next Home Shabbat.
