Shabbat and Study

Temple Beth El celebrates Shabbat with joyous, musical, and participatory services. We join together to sing joyful music that uplifts and excites our souls, as well as experience traditional and meditative moments that connect us to past generations and our deepest selves. Our Erev (Evening) Shabbat services begin every Friday evening at 7:30 p.m. and include reading from our sacred Torah scroll. We use the Reform movement’s prayerbook, Mishkan T'filah, and the prayers are also projected on screens to be easily visible and accessible.

Cantor Beth Schlossberg and Cantorial Soloist Karen Pincus enhance the musicality and spirituality of our Shabbat services. 

   

Cantor Beth Schlossberg grew up in Philadelphia, and graduated from the University of Michigan in 2001 with a Bachelor of Music. When she realized that the cantorate would perfectly combine her love of Judaism and of music, she enrolled in the Jewish Theological Seminary at the H.L. Miller Cantorial School. She has served as Cantor with Beth El Synagogue in Omaha, Nebraska, Congregation Kol Ami in Tampa, Florida, and Congregation Shaarey Tikvah in Cleveland, OH. Cantor Beth is also an educator: she has taught voice and piano, and she served as Director of the Judaics Department at the Hillel School of Tampa. She and her husband live in Tampa, FL still and are grateful and honored to be part of the TBE family!

As a sh’lichat tzibbur, Cantorial Soloist Karen Pincus has served the South Florida Jewish community since 2007, elevating each k’hillah k’doshah she has served through sacred song and prayer. From 2017 until 2021, she had the privilege of serving as Cantorial Soloist-Educator of Temple Israel of Greater Miami where she was instrumental in educating Temple Israel’s leaders of tomorrow through her b’nai mitzvah and song leader programs. Karen is a member of the Greater Miami Jewish Federation Cantorial Cabinet and is actively involved in the Greater Miami Jewish Federation’s Mishkan Miami Refuat Ha-Nefesh program.

On the second Friday of the month we give a special blessing to everyone who is celebrating at our Birthday and Anniversary Shabbat. On the fourth Friday of the month we have our Good News Shabbat, inviting everyone to share their good news, accomplishments, and nachas, celebrating and thanking God together. 

Temple Beth El welcomes families with young children! We have a vibrant group of families with babies, toddlers and preschoolers who come together for Tot Shabbat at 6:00 p.m. on the first Friday of each month. After services we join  together for a delicious and informal pizza dinner in the social hall.

No materials or prior Torah or Hebrew knowledge is required.
