Fourtelling: Journies, Stories & Songs Ad Book
BJBE will host an extraordinary and historic concert on Saturday December 6 at 7:30PM. Four of the most talented artists in contemporary Jewish music, Peri Smilow, Julie Silver, Michelle Citrin and Beth Schafer, will share the Bimah for the first time in their careers.
Each of them has helped shape the sound of women in Jewish music with their passion for Judaism, their creativity, and their inspiring artistry - and this is a rare opportunity to hear them make music all together. As Peri Smilow says, this concert will be the culmination of "twenty years of touring, of passing colleagues in the airport and dreaming of a day when we'd land in the same town at the same time and raise our voices in song together."
Below is the schedule for the weekend. Please join us for as many of these amazing opportunities as you can:
Don't wait! To purchase tickets to the concert, as well as participate in sponsorship opportunities, please visit: www.fourtelling.eventbrite.com. There is a program book dedicated to honoring the women who have made you who you are. Information on being included is available when you purchase your tickets. Please take this opportunity to share your love for them in print.
We look forward to celebrating the B'nai Mitzvah of Adam Brodsky and Ethan Rakowsky at the morning service, the Bar Mitzvah of Noah Herzog at the afternoon service this Saturday, and the Bar Mitzvah of Sander Ashman this Sunday. Mazel tov to Adam, Ethan, Noah, Sander and their families.

Sanctuary update and a visit from our architect... What you can't see is the music! When I walked in the Sanctuary, a song was playing, from everywhere, all at once.
