Our goal is to create an environment for in-person worship and gatherings in the safest, most inclusive fashion possible. We anticipate iterations of these guidelines as we learn from our experience during this transition, and as we become comfortable being together again. So much depends on where our community and the world are as we open up. As we have learned, we must be ready to pivot and adjust as needed.
It is in the presence of others that we can sing together and most powerfully share in each other’s joy and support each other through difficulty. We will welcome participation via Zoom as we continue the process of fully returning.
In light of the current upswing in COVID cases due to the Delta variant the parts of the service that require a minyan, such as mourners Kaddish, will be said if 10 are present. This total includes both those online as well as those in person.
Thank you for supporting our daily minyanim.

“More than Israel has kept the Shabbat, the Shabbat has kept Israel.” – Ahad HaAm
Bet Torah’s services are traditional and egalitarian, using Conservative liturgy with matriarchal textual references. We use no musical instruments other than our voices, raised together in song. Participation is encouraged. Men are required to wear kippot during services, and women—especially married women—are encouraged to cover their heads as well. All are also invited to wear tallitot, when appropriate.
Children are always welcome and we encourage families to worship together. Children who grow up in a synagogue are more likely to consider it their second home.
Bet Torah’s commitment to prayer is best expressed by our daily minyan. Services are held a minimum of once a day.
On Sunday, we have a morning service that begins at 9:00AM and usually ends at 9:45AM.
On Monday through Thursday, we have a zecher l’mincha (a remembrance of the afternoon service) followed by a full evening service beginning at 7:30PM and ending around 7:45PM.
On Friday and Saturday, our services follow our Shabbat schedule.
Please note that we move our daily minyan to shivah homes in our area, as needed. Contact our office to find out if services are being held away from Bet Torah and, if so, how to get there. When a congregant is sitting shivah over a Sunday, services will also be held Sunday evening at 6:30PM.
Attending minyan can be a meaningful experience. Please help us make a Minyan when you can.
Join Us for Tuesday Morning Minyan, 7:15 a.m. Share community, great coffee and bagels. Stay for Talmud discussion if you have the time.
Bet Torah’s T4 Minyan: Tuesdays, Tefillah, Talmud and Ta’am, our weekly early morning minyan, received a Silver Award in the category of “Commitment & Observance.”
All members are invited to join this example of a true Kehilah Kedoshah, which offers opportunities for prayer and study not only on Shabbat and holidays but also on regular weekdays. Bet Torah has for years offered a daily weekday service, Monday through Thursday evenings, and Sunday mornings. We wanted to offer our congregants more. So we implemented a unique Tuesday morning minyan that nourishes our minds, bodies and souls. Join us most Tuesday mornings in the Chapel, 7:15 a.m.
Shabbat is a sacred space in time—a taste of the world to come. We value the opportunity to gather, to reflect, and to feel as if all our needs are met. Shabbat is the centerpiece of the Bet Torah experience, offering warmth, comfort and inspiration. We articulate our vision for this experience as follows:
“We come together as a community to celebrate the joy of Shabbat.
Bet Torah welcomes individuals to participate in song, study and prayer.”
Bet Torah prides itself on having a strong worship community that participates each Shabbat morning.
