BZBI, where you worship

Zoom Shabbat

    Kabbalat Shabbat

    Kabbalat Shabbat (Friday evening) services provide an intimate setting to usher in Shabbat. The Zoom service (until we are able to return to the synagogue) includes traditional and contemporary melodies with voices joined together, helping to close out the work week and ease us into a day of rest and connection with friends and family.

    Shabbat Morning 

    Worship3Shabbat morning in our magnificent Goldberg Sanctuary is a special time at BZBI. Unfortunately, access to the sanctuary is limited, and most services are held via Zoom. Still, we are able to find a warm and friendly environment in which to greet friends and be inspired by the words and music of our traditional egalitarian service – to celebrate our simchas (celebrations) and those of other congregants, and to provide one another with spiritual support and comfort in difficult times. Our service draws on familiar prayers and melodies, as well as the best new and energizing tunes. Every Shabbat includes a reading of the week’s parashah. Following services, attendees have the opportunity to catch up with friends, welcome newcomers, and chat with our clergy at our small group Zoom Kiddush.     

    Alternative Shabbat Morning Prayer

    yogaShabbhakti, a spiritual Yoga Experience, is a space where you can connect with your breath, body, and soul through Deborah Glassman - Yoga Teacheryoga, meditation, and chanting. BZBI’s Dr. Deborah Glassman, a certified yoga instructor, leads Shabbhakti, an embodied, prayerful Shabbat alternative on the first Sunday of each month. Participants should wear comfortable clothes and use a mat if possible.  Until we return to the synagogue, all Shabbhakti events will take place via Zoom.

    Come join us and be a part of creating a new spiritual prayer experience. People of all backgrounds are welcome to join this informal service, full of song and conversation, and a creative Torah Service.
