Friday Night

The Ark Temple B'nai Shalom Fairfax Station VAMain Sanctuary: Every Friday evening at 7:30 p.m. during the summer we have a Shabbat worship service. Dress is business casual, please no jeans or shorts.

Family Services: The first Friday of every month is a family service where the service and music is geared towards children. Instead of sermon, one of the rabbis usually tells an interactive story with costumes, props, or pictures.

Tot Shabbat: This monthly service especially for newborns through second graders is held in the Social Hall at 6 p.m. on Friday evenings,. It includes lots of music, child-friendly prayers, and stories and activities. The service lasts about a half hour and is followed by a special kid-friendly oneg. Please see the temple calendar for dates.

Musical Meditations: Once a month at 6:45 pm one of our musically talented members plays music before service to allow congregants to quietly prepare for their Shabbat worship experience.
