Information about Services

Normally Rabbi Barbara Block leads Shabbat services at Ames Jewish Congregation approximately once a month; unless otherwise stated, the services take place Fridays at 7:30 p.m. and, if there is a Bar or Bat Mitzvah, at 10:00 a.m. on Saturdays.  On Saturdays when there is no Bar or Bat Mitzvah, the rabbi leads Torah study Saturdays at 10:00 am.  On some of the other weekends, congregation members lead services. 

At the present time, some AJC events are being carried out via Zoom or are hybrid. Contact for information about Zoom connections.
