It's hard to believe that we are already in the last week of July. We can expect more hot sultry days in August, just as BJBE's activities for the new year start to heat up! We truly enjoy meeting prospective members and introducing them to our congregation. Please give a warm BJBE welcome to any prospective members you see at services. Our next prospective member event is Friday, August 26 with a Shabbat service at 7:30pm followed by Dessert Under the Stars. High Holiday information will be mailed in the middle of August. We return to our regular 7:30pm Shabbat service schedule on Friday, August 19 and celebrate the first B'nai Mitzvah of the year on Saturday, August 20. Sisterhood Resale is August 7 & 8 and Post Carpool Club will enjoy an evening at Ravinia on Saturday, August 20. Demolition continues in the future school building. Click here to see the Jewish Learning Center (JLC) Newsletter. New editions of the newsletter will be released every two weeks so you can stay informed about the progress of the renovations.
Please see the full article for information on these and other upcoming programs.
Stay safe and keep cool!

Let us pledge to live these messages of peace and turn our prayer into action. Understand each other's vulnerability and pain, community by community. Work for wholeness and justice.
Do this: call your local police force and offer your condolences.
Do this: stand with the black community against racism and police misconduct.
Do this: vote for equality, vote for legislation for sensible gun laws, vote against racism, vote for education and health services to our poorest neighborhoods. Vote for sanity.
Do this: root out hate speech from around your dining room table and in your social circles. Words matter. They inspire or incite. Your words matter.
