Worship at CBJ

At Congregation Beth Jacob, we offer services that allow all who attend to engage in meaningful prayer, find personal connection to and relevance with Jewish tradition.

We strive for individual, communal and spiritual experience, finding empathy and connection with prayer. Learning at all levels is encouraged at CBJ, and our services provide opportunities for children and adults to deepen their understanding of Jewish prayer and traditions.  Our services are participatory and stress lay leadership and communal singing. Transliterations are available at each service to facilitate participation.

Below is a listing of all of the weekly worship services at CBJ.
