Shabbat Services

Erev Shabbat services are held every Friday evening at 8:00 pm both in-person and virtually.  Services are followed by an Oneg Shabbat (social hour).  Sponsorship for any Oneg to celebrate a special event or remember a yartzeit is available.

Most services on the second Friday of the month are upbeat musical Mizmor Shabbat services with song leader/guitarists Rabbi Ben Shalva or Robyn Helzner.

Shabbat Morning Services are held the 2nd and 4th Saturday morning of each month at 10:00 am, and include a Torah reading (on the triennial cycle) and a participatory discussion on the Torah portion.  When we meet in person, services are followed by a kiddush lunch.

Shabbat services are held at the Edlavitch Washington DC Jewish Community Center (EDCJCC), located at 1529 16th St NW, Washington DC 20036.  The entrance is on Q Street. 

 EDCJCC Entrance Requirements 
Masking in the EDCJCC is now optional in all areas except the Goldman Theater and Cafritz Hall.  Bet Mishpachah will continue to require that masks be worn during our services until further notice.  Masks may be taken off after services during the Oneg and Kiddush. 

For more information about specific services, festival events, and other programs, please see the Calendar or refer back to our homepage.

Copies of Bet Mishpachah's Siddur, Shavat va-Yinafash, are available for a suggested donation of $40.  Whether for your own personal reflection and prayer or for our virtual services, please contact​​​ to arrange for your own personal copy​​​​.
