Yoga-Meditation Shabbat: Led by Rabbi Yael Rapport, this minyan uses principles and practices of yoga and meditation to translate the structure and meaning of the Shabbat morning service from word to movement, creating a maximally embodied experience of worship. The service is open to everyone and requires no previous experience in yoga, meditation, or prayer.

Liberal Shabbat: At our Liberal Shabbat morning services, we draw on our inherited traditions in a consciously modern context. The style of the service reflects the contemporary evolution of Sabbath worship over the last century in this country, with a malleable liturgical selection. Using the Reconstructionist prayer book, Kol Haneshamah, we pray old and new liturgy in both Hebrew and English. Torah is read in a triennial cycle, and there is always a discussion of the week's parashah (Torah portion). Healing prayers are offered at every Torah service, and there is always an opportunity to say Mourner's Kaddish at the end. The service ends at 12:30 pm.

TEM (Traditional Egalitarian Minyan): The TEM service, or Traditional Egalitarian Minyan, reflects a long-established mode of praying the complete Sabbath morning liturgy (including Musaf). In addition, the full parashah (Torah portion) is chanted. TEM’s name reflects both an increased use of Hebrew at this service, as well as a commitment to gender equality in every aspect of participating and leading the service. This service uses siddur Lev Shalem, the Conservative movement's prayer book. You are welcome to attend, regardless of your knowledge of Hebrew or prior synagogue experience. All services include a D'var Torah (short sermon). The service concludes at approximately 12:00 pm.

Special Shabbatot: CBST offers Yoga Meditation, Liberal Reconstructionist, and Traditional Egalitarian services on a rotating schedule. On months when there are five Shabbatot, CBST offers a special clergy-led Torah Study or Learner's Minyan for those seeking to enrich their Shabbat morning experience. When Shabbat falls on a Yom Tov, services include special ritual additions and holiday readings.

CBST is committed to accessibility. Learn more.
