Shabbat Morning (Saturday)

Valley Beth Shalom buzzes every Saturday morning in celebration of Shabbat.

We are a synagogue that prays, learns, and celebrates together.  Below are the various venues for prayer on Shabbat Morning.  

Main Sanctuary- Each Saturday morning, the main sanctuary teems with joy-filled celebration, prayer and study. Services begin at 9:45 a.m. 

Torah Study- Join Rabbi Ed Feinstein every week from 9:00 to 10:15 a.m. to probe the week’s Torah portion. If you are unable to attend in person, we offer Torah Study via Live Stream programming. Visit for more info.

Library Minyan- Meets the 2nd and 4th Shabbat morning every month. This is a lay-led and study-filled experience using many contemporary melodies. This minyan meets at 9:30 a.m. in the Bernstein Balcony Seminar Room on the second floor.

Tot Shabbat- Meets the 2nd and 4th Shabbat morning every month. A spirited service for our youngest congregants with guitar, song, and a story. The service begins at 10:00 a.m. and is followed by a light kiddish (bagels and cookies).

Kids Minyan- A lively Saturday morning service for elementary school age kids and their families. Each month, children are assigned roles in the service including singing, reading Torah, and sharing a teaching (d’var Torah). 

N'Shama Minyan- Officiated by Rabbi Nina Bieber-Feinstein, and Cantorial Soloist Cindy Paley Aboody, this Womens' minyan is open to all and meets periodically to celebrate Shabbat. 

Playground Minyan- A lay-led service with contemporary melodies. Children are encouraged to intermingle with adults and to participate in the service. This service begins at 9:30 a.m. in the Early Childhood Center Classroom followed by lunch and occasional Torah Study. 

Parsha Discussion Group- Informative group meeting immediately following Shabbat services. No prior knowledge is necessary. Shiur meets most Saturdays unless there is a Shabbat Shiur.

Meditation Services- This group meets on Shabbat mornings once a month in Winer chapel. For one hour, you can quiet the mind while opening up the soul and experiencing Shabbat in a new light. 

Shabbat Shiur- These programs are offered periodically following Shabbat morning services and kiddush luncheon, starting at approximately 12:30 p.m. The program features speakers from the Jewish community providing insight into contemporary topics of interest. Past programs have featured a wide variety of extraordinary teachers and individuals who have something of interest to share with our community. Check the VBS home page and Calendar for current information on upcoming events.
