This week at BJBE - March 2

Dear Friends,

The Purim celebration continues this Wednesday with a pot luck dinner, Purim service with Megillah reading and social action project. For those looking for mitzvah projects, this is a great opportunity. 

A very special thanks to the committees, volunteers and participants of the Adult Purim Party and Purim Carnival held this past weekend. These events are an important reminder of what a special place BJBE is. The Adult Purim Party was filled with great music and entertainment, delicious food, colorful decorations and congregants dressed in imaginative costumes having a great time. On Sunday it was wonderful to see families having fun together at BJBE playing games, being entertained by our clergy, junior choir and a magician, visiting the face painters, tattoo artists and fortune teller, enjoying lunch and cotton candy, and redeeming game tickets for great prizes. 

A new adult education series starts this SundayDealing with Difficult People. Also on Sunday, StandWithUs will present concurrent programs for adults and Chai School students on understanding and navigating growing anti-semitism, particularly the BDS movement on college campuses.  

Be sure to support our teens going to Kolin and Israel by shopping the online auction.

Please see sections in the full article for information on
these and other programs
 

We look forward to celebrating the B'nai Mitzvah of Charlie Sussman and Logan Resnick at the morning service and the B'nai Mitzvah of Madison Sherman and Scott Goldman at the afternoon service this Saturday. Mazel tov to Charlie, Logan, Madison, Scott and their families.     

L'shalom,

Arlene
