The Shabbat Experience

The Shabbat Experience @ Beth Sholom

All Beth Sholom congregants, including families with children in grades k-12 participate in The Shabbat Experiences. Programs take place on Friday nights, Shabbat mornings, or Havdallah services. We have six programs planned over the course of the school year where students and their families will experience shabbat, be exposed to guest speakers, share Shabbat meals together and learn together.

What can you look forward to this year at our TSE program?

Good friends, Shabbat food, and great community. As in previous years, during our Shabbat morning program, we offer several davening options. We are committed to offering a traditional service, a shorter family inclusive service, and a preschool service.

The entire TSE committee looks forward to celebrating Shabbat with you this year. If you would like to join our committee, please contact Rabbi Merow (215-887-1342).

Celebrate Shabbat

A culmination of our year-long study. Feel the ruach of Shabbat.

Despite the fact that we are no longer able to receive grant monies from the Legacy Heritage foundation, Beth Sholom will continue to heavily subsidize the cost of our Shabbat Experience. For this reason, we are asking our families to contribute to the cost of our two dinners for our Shabbat Experience this year. Lunches will continue to be free.
