Summer Worship Schedule

As we have the opportunity to experience clergy from other congregations, please let us know what characteristics you appreciate about them! (To be clear, these rabbis are NOT candidates for a position with TBESOC; they are guest clergy filling in while Rabbi K’vod is on Sabbatical.)

Worship in person every Friday night at the temple.

Some of the services will originate in zoom and be viewed at the temple, others will originate at the temple and be streamed online.

However you prefer, bring in Shabbat with us!

June 25, Sponsored by Myka Thompson on occassion of Bryson’s graduation

Soul Spark is the creation of Cantor Natalie Young and Rabbi K'vod and features ensemble members cellist Steve Velez and percussionist Evan Wohl. This one-of-a-kind Shabbat evening service features contemplative music, meditation, and wisdom to ignite your soul! To sponsor an upcoming Soul Spark Shabbat Service, please contact Myka Thompson at                      

The Soul Spark Shabbat Service recording was partially funded by a grant from the Albert and Rhoda Weissman Arts Endowment Fund, a joint program of Jewish Community Foundation Orange County and Jewish Federation & Family Services of Orange County.

On select Fridays monthly, we encourage "Bringing Shabbat Home". Invite a fellow congregant, friend(s), or your Small Group to join you virtually and share how YOU observe Shabbat. To help you create a meaningful and engaging Shabbat, audio files and a resource booklet are available to download and includes:

• What ritual items you need to bring Shabbat home
• Blessings and songs (in Hebrew, transliterated Hebrew, and English) and some teachings related to them
• Torah text and discussion topics
• Holiday recipes

This is an opportunity to gather with new and old TBESOC friends and observe Shabbat—“ceasing from rest”—outside of the synagogue setting. Enjoy!

Shabbat / Saturday Mornings

Torah Study

Every Saturday morning, join us for a zoom conference call where we take turns facilitating a discussion of the week’s Torah portion. (Please note: the link was updated on 10/5/2020)

Explore the weekly portion in a warm and welcoming atmosphere where each participant has the opportunity to learn, listen and share. The Torah Study Group provides its members and guests an opportunity to deepen their understanding of Torah in a safe and welcoming community which values respect for different perspectives and civility toward all. We value diverse opinions on the parashah being studied, including those not emanating from Judaism. Please join us in study any Saturday morning; a brief lay-led service follows the study.
