Services

At this time, all services are virtual.  Please contact the office if you would like to be sent a link to participate via Zoom (admin@berchayim.org).

The needs of the Reform and Conservative movements are met in our services. Friday evening services begin each week at 7:30 pm, except for the first Friday of the month.  On that week we do not hold a Friday evening service.  Instead, on the next day (Saturday morning) we hold a Shabbat service beginning at 10:00 am.  Every third Saturday morning a Torah study session is held at 10:00 am.

Our prayer book is the CCAR “Mishkan T’Filah.”  Links to prayer books in flipbook format are on the home page of this website.

An Oneg follows weekly Friday evening Shabbat services, sponsored on a voluntary basis by members of the congregation.

There are special Shabbat services such as the Hadassah Shabbat at which Hadassah members conduct the service. We also celebrate other Jewish holidays including Sukkot, Simchat Torah, Hanukkah, Purim, Passover, Shavuot and Tu B’Shevat. A community Seder is held on the second night of Passover.
