Shabbat

“Shabbat is a palace in time” -Abraham Joshua Heschel

Kabbalat Shabbat Services

Join us Friday night at 7:30 pm for Shabbat Services led by Rabbi Jillian Cameron and Cantor Juval Porat and community members to joyfully welcome Shabbat through soulful song, prayer, creative teachings, and communal connection.

BCC’s Friday Night Siddur, prayer book, is a living document first written and compiled in the ‘70s by BCC’s ritual committee. Under the leadership of member Harriet Perl z”l, BCC’s Siddur was one of the first, if not the very first, Reform prayer books to be written in gender-neutral language. Our Siddur contains many translations and readings written by members, including LGBTQ+-inclusive and feminist liturgy not found in any other prayer book.
