Q. WHAT ARE BEIT ZAYIT’S SERVICES LIKE?
A. In our Shabbat morning service, we utilize a Messianic Jewish Siddur (prayer book) and follow the order for the Shacharit prayer service. We also have a music/worship set, a Torah reading and a short teaching. Most of the prayers are in transliterated Hebrew and include an English translation.The service typically ends around noon. At the conclusion of our service we have Kiddish (blessing over the wine and challah).
We then we have Oneg (lunch). Lunch is pot luck. We love for guests to stay and join us for lunch.
At 1:30pm we pivot to Torah Club. Torah Club is interactive and typically quite lively! You can sit in to preview Torah Club twice before committing to participate regularly. Torah Club is usually finished at 3:00pm.
