BJ’s core values are reflected every Shabbat by bringing families and our whole community together. Our services—full of music and spirituality—show the essence of our community as we strive to share approachable and accessible Judaism, to ensure that everyone feels included and welcome. At BJ, we believe that education is about modeling authentic experiences of Jewish life, and we’re excited that our Shabbat Model program embraces BJ’s celebration of Shabbat.

All BJ families are welcome at Shabbat Model—please note the programming is designed with our third through sixth grade students in mind.

Students enrolled in grades 3-6 at Kadima@BJ are expected to attend at least two Shabbat Model services a month. Please select the services that are the best options for your family! (You must be a BJ member, but you do not have to be enrolled in Kadima@BJ to participate).

  • Shabbat Model services will be on the first or second Shabbat of each month.
  • Each Shabbat Model service will also include learning and a Shabbat meal.

Saturday, April 13th is Fifth Grade Shabbat! Fifth grade students will be invited to lead the family service with Rabbi Becca and Michael Harlow!

Please register by 12:00 PM on April 2, 2024.
