We enter into the High Holidays with a special S'lichot program this Saturday evening, featuring moving stories on How God Was in this Place: Personal Life-Saving Journeys followed by a S'lichot service.
See sections below for information on these and other upcoming events.
We are processing our High Holy Day tickets in batches this year. The first group was mailed last week, with another going out this week. Adults receive a ticket insert that will be placed in a badge holder that you can pick up when you attend your first service. Children's tickets are labels designed for one-time use, so there is a label for every service that your children will attend.
BJBE looks forward to celebrating the B'nai Mitzvah of Jorrin Andre and Joshua Levin at the morning service this Saturday. Mazel tov to Jorrin, Joshua and their families!
Make certain to stop in your Judaica Shop to see the new honey dishes and shofars in time for Rosh Hashanah.

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.
