Shabbat at Judea Reform

In order to accommodate our diverse membership, we offer a variety of Shabbat worship services. At our traditional services, we use Mishkan T'filah as our prayerbook. However, other services may use other texts, other styles, and other music. One thing you can count on, though: Shabbat at Judea Reform is a sacred time and a sacred space where you will be welcome.

Our typical schedule of services is as follows, but check our calendar to find out what time each Erev Shabbat service is scheduled. Also check to see if there will be a supper before the service. These dinners offer an opportunity to share a delicious dish and a favorite story or two.

  • First and Third Friday Erev Shabbat Services begin at 7:30 pm, using Mishkan Tefillah
  • Second Friday Erev Shabbat Services begin at 7 pm, using Mishkan Tefillah for Youth
  • Fourth Friday Erev Shabbat Services, begin at 6 pm, using Mishkan Tefillah
  • Fifth Friday Erev Shabbat Services, when there is one, begin at 6 pm, using Mishkan Tefillah
  • Shabbat Morning services and Community Luncheon, begin at 11 am, using Mishkan Tefillah, luncheon follows, usually second Saturday of each month
  • Shabbat Morning services, various Saturdays, led by a new Bar or Bat Mitzvah, begin at 11 am, using Mishkan Tefillah
