This week at BJBE - June 1

Dear Friends,  

Rabbi Stoller has been in touch with the Jewish community in Houston to see how BJBE can support flood relief efforts. Houston is Rabbi Stoller's hometown, and one of the most affected areas, Meyerland, is where Rabbi  grew up. In order to help families who have been impacted by the flood, BJBE is collecting Target gift cards which members of the Houston clergy will personally distribute to families. BJBE volunteers will be collecting Target gift cards at the Annual Meeting on Wednesday, June 3; at the Friday, June 5 Leadership Shabbat; and all week long in the Temple office. Please contact Susie Selbst or Sarah Duffin with questions.

Have a voice in your BJBE Community by attending our Annual Meeting on Wednesday. We will be showing the Blackhawks game so please be part of the quorum needed to vote on the constitutional amendments.  Celebrate the installations of our new president, Gary Schaffel, the 2015/16 Board of Trustees and Sisterhood Board at Friday night's Tefilah Band service.   

Please see the full article for information on these
and other upcoming programs.

We look forward to celebrating the B'not Mitzvah of Arielle Lewis and Brianna Lewis at the morning service and the B'nai Mitzvah of Ethan Seiden and Isabelle West at our Havdalah Service this Saturday, and the Bat Mitzvah of Ellie Ginsburg on Sunday. Mazel tov to Arielle, Brianna, Ethan, Isabelle, Ellie and their families.  

L'shalom
