We are a welcoming congregation filled with the energy of Jewish renewal. Continuing a tradition of progressive Judaism that goes back more than a century, Beth Abraham Synagogue is located in the city of Oakwood near Dayton, Ohio. Our weekly Shabbat services are held in our brightly lit main sanctuary while our daily minyan services are held in our intimate chapel. Both settings feature beautiful stained glass images that were commissioned specifically for our synagogue and that add spiritual warmth to our services.
At this time we will not be meeting at Beth Abraham for daily minyan. However, you are welcome to join our virtual minyan Monday through Thursday at 5:30 pm. Using the Zoom mobile app, or on your computer, join URL: https://tinyurl.com/ywn3ffjc (Meeting ID: 834 2424 7760 Passcode: 388424)
Kabbalat Shabbat – A Kaleidoscope of Opportunities
On the 1st and 3rd Fridays each month, join Rav Aubrey for Idra Shabbat, a contemplative service of meditation and wordless melodies, held in the round. These services take place in the Beth Abraham chapel.
On the 2nd Friday each month, families with children of all ages (including those who are children at heart) are invited to a joyous and creative Shabbat celebration with Cantor Raizen, Rhythm ‘N’ Ruach. There will be songs, prayers and movement, with rhythm instruments provided for use. This service is held in the Chapel.
Join Cantor Raizen online every 4th Friday of the month at 5:00 pm for Kabba-Lotsa-Fun Shabbat. On Zoom, we begin with a sing-along and fun game, followed by Mincha and Kabbalat Shabbat services. Services should last no more than one hour. (THERE IS NO KABBA-LOTSA-FUN SHABBAT IN MAY 2023)
