Services & Dinners

Regular Service Schedule (non-holidays)

Synagogue services have always held a central place in the life of Congregation Beth Ami. Our usual service schedule for non-holiday days is below.

Friday Evening Services

Shabbat Evening Services Friday night services, except for the first Friday of the month, will be at 7:30 during standard time months. This will enable congregants to eat dinner before services and socialize at the oneg afterwards. On the first Friday and on some other occasions when there is a dinner, there will be a shorter evening service from 6:00 to 6:30.

First Friday of each month: Shabbat Dinner & Services with Rabbi Miller: Services from 6:00-6:30 followed by dinner. Speakers, music, or other programs may follow dinner. Please join us, but it’s important to RSVP by the previous Wednesday morning. $15 per adult, $8 for children over 5. Younger children are free. Make your reservation by calling 707-360-3000 or emailing the office by noon the Wednesday before the dinner.
