With an average onsite attendance of 600 each Shabbat morning and more on a simcha week, BES@Croxdale is a significant Shabbat morning undertaking. The service in the Main Shul of course runs weekly, and most weeks there are also alternative services such as the Limmud, Hashkama and Nitzan services, as well as youth and children's services and activities.
The Main Shul is the largest BES Shabbat morning service, a destination for members of all ages to come together, share in celebrating the many Smachot in our community and enjoy the uplifting experience of hundreds of people praying together. It’s a family-friendly service with a kids bookshelf (behind the Bima) and plenty of seating. Although it’s occasionally a little noisier than the wardens would like, there is a friendly and convivial atmosphere which many visitors comment as being unique to BES.
At the end of our Shabbat morning services, our community comes together for a weekly Kiddush. Whether celebrating a simcha or just to socialise with other members, our Kiddushim are renowned for their quality and innovation.
