Tfilah (prayer) is a core value at B’nai Israel. We are very proud of our twice-daily services, our vibrant Shabbat community, and our celebrations of each festival. On a liturgical level, our services are egalitarian traditional – meaning that men and women participate equally in all ritual roles and that we chant the entire Torah portion designated for each week. Our services incorporate both Hebrew and English, are musically vibrant, and include regular presentations by our rabbis on a broad range of themes and concerns.
