Friday Night Services

Generally, Friday Night services are held at 8:15 pm.

Throughout the year, there are many Friday nights when we have special services that begin earlier to accommodate families (Family Shabbat) and young children (TGIS or Thank G-D It’s Shabbat).  From May through September we use musical instruments during Kabbalat Shabbat at these earlier services.

However, this schedule can vary and, therefore, we recommend that you check the calendar on this website or contact our office (973) 538-9292 or Execdir@mjcby.org before 2:00 pm on Friday to confirm the time of services.

We also hold various special Friday Night programs including Barechu & You in the spring and summer (where services and dinner are held in a local park),  Shabbat in the Neighborhood (where services are run by groups in conjunction with dinner at someone’s home) and other special programs. Look for these in our calendar.
