Student Participation in Services 

 

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

 

 

  • April 17 - Chaverim
  • May 15 - Kitah Alef Hebrew class

We are adding a class pot-luck dinner to each BSBH service night which will follow the 6:30 p.m. service at 7:15 p.m.  These dinners will undoubtedly be remote experiences until the end of the school year.  Eat at home; socialize during dinner via Zoom. Families will receive a note with details in the weeks leading up to the service.

 

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. 

 

  • Saturday, May 2 - Kitah Dalet. Virtual service via Zoom with student participation and shared BYO Kiddush Bagel Brunch following.  

ABOUT OUR SERVICES:

SERVICES SCHEDULE - We are maintaining this schedule during this time of social distance through streaming and Zoom technology options.  Some services will be streamed earlier on Friday and posted for viewing at your convenience.

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

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

Coming 7:30 dates:  April 10, May 8

FAMILY SERVICES: 

The first Friday night of each month is a Family Kabbalat Shabbat, geared toward young children, one half hour in length. 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 with lots of camp-style songs. Ari Goldstein is often our songleader. 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. The Next HOME Shabbat is May 29.  It is scheduled for Letven's in Racine. It may not be possible to gather in person. Details TBA.

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.
