Friday Night/Kabbalat Shabbat: Informal, causal, spirited and soulful.
Beth Am Israel’s Musical Kabbalat Shabbat service offers contemplative and uplifting prayer with melodies and niggunim set to acoustic music. The Maariv or evening service that follows blends traditional nusach with contemporary melodies. Come as you are. Jeans and sneakers are as common as suit and tie.
