BSBI holds weekly Shabbat Learning Programs in addition to our usual Saturday morning services. These programs give congregants a chance to engage with Shabbat in a more intimate setting and become better acquainted with various aspects of the service.
1st Saturday of the month: Learner’s Minyan, 10:30-11:30 AM Led by Michelle Konigsburg. Learn the structure and choreography of the Saturday service in a relaxed setting. Bring your questions.

4th Saturday of the month: Women’s Minyan, 9:30-10:45 AM Led by Michelle Konigsburg. Kol Ruchani L’Nashim-bringing together the spiritual voices of women seeking to delve deeper into the meanings of the prayers collected in our siddur, strengthening our kavannah (intention) in prayer and exploring our personal connection to God.
Every Saturday until Summer: Youth Minyan, 10:30 AM-Noon Led by Glen Hauer. Join our weekly Youth Minyan program for religious school aged children. Children will lead prayers, learn about the week’s Parsha and play some games. The Youth Minyan will end at noon so that all can join us at the Kiddush after the service (or at lunch if it is a lunch week). Parents are welcome to join their children for the Youth Minyan or join us in the Main Sanctuary. There is no charge and it will be held every week until the summer. Everyone is welcome.
