Congregation Beth HaTephila

An Engaging, Inclusive, Reform Congregation in the Blue Ridge Mountains

Shabbat Services

Our services are warm, welcoming and inspiring. A whole lot of music, led by members of our Sacred Music Team, and periodically by our adult choir, Kol Simcha. Congregants are encouraged to participate (and do!). Services typically last an hour to one and a half hours, followed by an Oneg Shabbat in Dave Hall.

Ours is a very friendly and welcoming congregation. Visitors and guests at Shabbat services are invited to introduce themselves so they are warmly greeted and engaged at the oneg.

We seek every opportunity for communal celebration. Births, birthdays, anniversaries, unions, graduations, b’nai mitzvahs, confirmations, special family occasions, are all opportunities taken to share in the joy.

This joy and warmth is inviting, inspiring, and really not adequately described in words. It must be experienced.

Occasionally, there are Shabbat-at-home services.  These are Friday nights where Shabbat services are held at congregants homes.  On these special events, there are no services at the Temple.
