Daily Shacharit services are once again followed by a complimentary breakfast (a treat lost during the height of the pandemic)..

Shacharit begins at 7:45 am Monday through Friday and at 8:45 am on Sunday.

Before the pandemic, breakfast at B'nai Avraham was a lavish affair (often featuring a choice of scrambled eggs, shakshuka, waffles and bagels), as these pictures from a Summer Sunday in 2018, attest.
