Come Home to Barnert!


There are many ways to experience worship at Barnert Temple. We invite you to try them and find your place!

Friday Night Shabbat Worship with Rabbi Steiner (Times vary)

Please join us for any service – just come. All ages, any time.

  • On the first Friday, services begin at 7 pm and are followed by a fabulous potluck supper.
  • The rest of the Fridays (2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th) begin at 7:30 pm.
  • July and August: Friday evening services begin at 7 pm; weather permitting, we meet outside on our patio overlooking the lawn and woods.
  • Dress for all Friday evenings is nice casual.
  • Tot Shabbat
    Join us for our always-popular Tot Shabbat, a special service for children in preschool through grade 2 led by Rabbi Steiner. Tot Shabbat is held one Friday evening a month, beginning with a service and ending with Shabbat Pizza Dinner and special child friendly Oneg Shabbat dessert! This hour service is especially designed with our youngest ones (pre-readers) in mind. Enjoy musical prayer, dancing with the Torah, and a Shabbat story. If you attend the 5 pm service, remain afterwards for a Pizza Dinner (reservations requested).
