Services & Dinners
SERVICES AND EVENTS ARE A MIX OF IN-PERSON, ZOOM AND HYBRID
We have now resumed our famed Shabbat dinners, and are conducting in person Shabbat morning services with a light lunch following, as well as some indoor meetings. Most (but not all) evening services and meetings remain on Zoom. We will have the sanctuary open on Friday evenings for special speakers and occasions. Our Shabbat services are a true hybrid with active participants on Zoom. Mask mandates have been lifted for our situation, though people should and do wear them. See Beth Ami Virtual Week for details.
Friday night Shabbat dinners at CBA are back. Join us for Kabbalat services at 6 pm live and on Zoom followed by a scrumptious milchik or pareve dinner prepared by David Kahn, with help from Mark Dierkhising and Bernard Soltes. Please make your reservation by the preceding Wednesday at 5 pm. Adults $18 , children 5 – 13 $9, children under 5 free. Some scholarships available. Register online or call 707-360-3000 or email email@example.com.
Fridays on Zoom, also the sanctuary will be open for special occasions: We begin at 5:45 p.m. with a song and a story for the kids (and the kid at heart), followed by Kabbalat Shabbat and Shabbat Dinner with Rabbi Miller on first Fridays. On other Fridays, Lisa Iskin, sometimes joined by guest Leah Gerber, leads a short and very sweet musical Shabbat service at 6:00 pm, concluding with our communal Kiddush at about 6:30 pm. We hope that joining as a community in this way, will lift all of our spirits, with the beauty and holiness of Shabbat.
Saturday Shabbat morning services in person and on Zoom, 9:30 am, lead by Rabbi Mordecai Miller and congregants. There are hearing assistance devices for in-person attendees and captioning available on Zoom.
