Our worship at B'nai Yehuda Beth Sholom is a living ritual in which members participate actively, and friends and guests are warmly welcomed. We hold Shabbat services both on Friday evenings and Saturday mornings with a Torah reading and learning on Saturday morning (for details and service times, click on the Shabbat link).

There is an Oneg Shabbat on most Friday nights. Often we have a program after service on Friday or Saturday, which may be adult education or a special guest speaker, sometimes with a light Kiddush lunch on Saturday. One Saturday a month, we have Bible & Bagels, an informal discussion of the week's Torah portion and/or another interesting topic.

For High Holy Days, we follow Reform practice, but we observe both the first and second days of Rosh Hashanah.

As an active part of the tight-knit South Suburban Jewish community, we hold combined services several times a year with the other neighboring synagogues and those in northern Indiana, both Reform and the Conservative.
