This Week at BJBE - May 23

Dear Friends,     

We are so proud and pleased to announce that the 2016 Gala raised close to $45,000 that directly supports programming and services provided by Congregation BJBE. Congratulations and thank you to Gala co-chairs Jenn Dubinsky and Todd Cohan, and to the members of the Gala Committee: Liz and Andrew Abrams, Terri Argentar, Ted Belinky, Carole Klein-Alexander, Lara Kunz, Steffanie Pinsky, Ellyn Shapiro, Sid Siegel, Maureen Wener and Lisa Wilson.

After a successful and delicious run, Supper Club's last gathering was this past Wednesday. My sincerest thanks to Susie Diamond for the many mouth-watering meals she cooked and arranged, and for bringing people together on Wednesday evenings before Music Minyan.

We'd like to invite all of our members who have graduated from college this spring to attend the Shabbat Service this Friday, May 27 at 7:30pm for a blessing on the bimah. Congratulations and best of luck on this important achievement. 

Please mark your calendars for Wednesday, June 8 at 7:00pm to attend the 2016 Annual Meeting. The congregation will vote to approve the renovation of the 1141 building to house our school, the Jewish Learning Center (JLC). We need 250 adult congregants present to have a quorum. Please see sections below for information on these and other upcoming programs  Now that the school year is over, it is time to clean out our Lost & Found, located in the office workroom. We will donate any unclaimed items on June 2, so please come take a look in the Lost & Found if you think you or your family members have left something here. 

We look forward to celebrating the B'not Mitzvah of Ava Leipzig and Ava Selbst at the morning service and the Bar Mitzvah of Seth Cohen at the evening service this Saturday. We will celebrate the Bar Mitzvah of Joshua Radis on Monday. Mazel tov to Ava, Ava, Seth, Joshua and their families.

Please note: the building will be closed Sunday and the temple office will be closed next Monday in observance of Memorial Day.

L'shalom
