BZBI, where you worship

Multi-Access Shabbat

    Kabbalat Shabbat

    Kabbalat Shabbat (Friday evening) services provide an intimate setting to usher in Shabbat. The service is currently held in Fitler Square Park (until it gets too cold and we must return to the Klinghoffer chapel) and 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. The service is also live-streamed on Zoom.

    Shabbat Morning 

    Worship3Shabbat morning in our magnificent Goldberg Sanctuary is a special time at BZBI. We offer  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. In addition, the service is offered on Zoom. Every Shabbat includes a full lreading of the week’s parashah. Following services, in-person attendees meet outdoors for “grab n’ go” Kiddush while those on Zoom can catch up with friends and welcome newcomers at our small group Zoom Kiddush.
