Services at Beth David are lively and participatory. We love to sing, so services are filled with melody. Much of the service is in Hebrew, but we provide a thorough transliteration booklet keyed to the pages in the prayer book. Our goal is for everyone to feel at home and welcome in our services. Our Torah study during services is not a traditional sermon, but is interactive, with members engaged in discussion and learning with our Rabbis. Rabbis and members alike welcome your questions. Please stay after Shabbat morning and join us in Kiddush (the wine blessing), Motzi (the bread blessing) and a sit-down lunch.
