Just a note about Shabbat services at Bet Mishpachah. Since the DCJCC is undergoing renovations, services are held at Foundry United Methodist Church:[masked]th St NW, Washington, DC 20036, USA (http://www.foundryumc.org/) - Erev Shabbat services are held every Friday evening at 8:00 pm, followed by an Oneg Shabbat (social hour) with dessert, coffee, and soft drinks. Most services on the second Friday of the month are upbeat musical Mizmor Shabbat services with song leader/guitarists Rabbi Ben Shalva or Robyn Helzner. Services on the third Friday of the month generally feature a Torah discussion ("Text Messages: Torah for Today") in lieu of a sermon. Services on the fourth Friday of the month are "classic" Bet Mishpachah services with traditional congregational melodies. Shabbat Morning Services are held the 2nd and 4th Saturday morning of each month at 10:00 am, and include a Torah reading (on the triennial cycle) and a participatory discussion on the Torah portion followed by a kiddush and buffet lunch. Shabbat services are held at Foundry United Methodist Church, 16th & P Sts. NW, while the DC Jewish Community Center is being renovated. For more information about specific services and Shabbat candle lighting times, please see the Calendar. http://betmish.org/index.php/our-services-and-liturgy/shabbat-and-festival-services Bet Mishpachah is a congregation for Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgender Jews and all who wish to participate in an inclusive, egalitarian, and mutually supportive community.
