Our weekly shabbat services begin promptly at 10:30 AM, so plan on arriving 15 minutes before we start. That way, the Rabbi and Elders have an opportunity to welcome you personally.
Normally people dress business casual. All men are encouraged to wear a kippah/yarmulke. A tallit (prayer shawl) is available to Jewish men who visit with us.
When you come through our doors, expect to be greeted by someone with a smile and a Shabbat Shalom.
Our typical service ends at 12:15, followed by Kiddish (blessing over bread and wine, fellowship, coffee and pastries). Once a month we also host an Oneg at our main location at 4449 NW 2nd Av., Boca.
Our service typically begins with a blend of traditional Jewish liturgy and contemporary music. We then have a Torah service which includes:
- Torah procession
- Kids Torah Talk
- Torah reading in Hebrew and English
- The Haftarah and the Brit Chadasha (New Covenant) that all relates to the weekly Torah portion.
Children ages 4-11 are encouraged to join a class at the end of the Torah service and before the Rabbi’s message. The message is typically 35 mins and children will rejoin the service for the final Aaronic blessing.
We invite you to come visit on a Shabbat morning and enjoy a special time with our Shalom Boca family.
