First Fridays

Feel right at home at Temple Beth Shalom on First Fridays! Come participate in a comfortable, casual, and community-connecting evening on the first Friday of each month. 

This Shabbat celebration is for everyone! Dinner is very casual, served buffet style, and we welcome even the youngest kids who are always on the move.

October: Connect & Engage Shabbat

Oct. 5, 2018

Our Connect & Engage Shabbat is a great opportunity to meet committee leaders and fellow congregants. New and long-term members alike will find a connection and enjoy sharing in the Shabbat spirit. From 6:00-7:00 p.m. we’ll have a robust (and tasty) oneg spread, with the space to mingle and informally chat with committee leaders. Walk into the Erev Shabbat service at 7:00 p.m. with a full belly and new friends!


  • 5:30-6:00 p.m. - Tot Shabbat
  • 6:00-7:00 p.m. - Oneg + Committee & Congregant Meet & Greet
  • 7:00-7:45 p.m. - First Friday Erev Shabbat Service
For Every First Friday:
Adults and teens, we encourage your participation in First Fridays services by making music! Voice or instrument, some First Fridays or many—pick what works for you. Join the First Fridays Music Makers!
