The B’nei Anusim Center for Education offers two monthly Shacharit Services on Shabbat at 10:30am in Grand Prairie at my family’s home.  The service schedule rotates to accommodate shifting schedules.

The service is traditional and the Orthodox Orot Sephardic siddur is used and occasionally elements from the Spanish and Portuguese Siddur (Shearith Israel) are also incorporated. The service is condensed but includes all required prayers.

The service is 90% Hebrew, but the Davar Torah and some prayers are recited in English. Spanish is also spoken by many members.

We provide lunch and sing zemirot and Birkat Hamazon afterward.

If you are interested in attending a traditional service with a high percentage of Spanish speakers, please feel free to reach out at rambam44@gmail.com.
