Yes, there are many sites with recordings of Shabbat services, but these are the "minhag" -- customs -- we use most of the time at Congregation Beth Emeth. Click on the name of the file, which will call up an audio program on a new page or will open your default audio player, and then play the audio file you have chosen. Interested in more hands-on learning? The Ritual Committee can help you find a tutor.
