"For as long as the Jewish people have kept Shabbat, Shabbat has kept the Jewish people."

Shabbat, the seventh day of the week, is a time set aside from normal obligations to allow us to focus on family, friends and that which is sacred in our lives.  Congregation Beth El welcomes the Shabbat every Friday night with a song-filled service celebrating the week's end and welcoming in a period of rest and rejuvenation.  Throughout the year, our Kabbalat Shabbat and Shir Shabbat services typically begin at 7:00 p.m. and are currently being held via Zoom.

On Saturday mornings we reconvene for a more meditative service of prayer and learning.  These regular Shabbat morning services begin at 10:00 a.m. and are held "hybrid," that is, in person at Temple Emanu-El (29 Dayton Rd., Waterford) and via Zoom for those who wish to view the service virtually.  

Please contact the office at or (860) 442-0418 for the Zoom link or more information.
