The Purim celebration continues this Wednesday with a pot luck dinner, Purim service with Megillah reading and social action project. For those looking for mitzvah projects, this is a great opportunity.
A very special thanks to the committees, volunteers and participants of the Adult Purim Party and Purim Carnival held this past weekend. These events are an important reminder of what a special place BJBE is. The Adult Purim Party was filled with great music and entertainment, delicious food, colorful decorations and congregants dressed in imaginative costumes having a great time. On Sunday it was wonderful to see families having fun together at BJBE playing games, being entertained by our clergy, junior choir and a magician, visiting the face painters, tattoo artists and fortune teller, enjoying lunch and cotton candy, and redeeming game tickets for great prizes.
A new adult education series starts this Sunday, Dealing with Difficult People. Also on Sunday, StandWithUs will present concurrent programs for adults and Chai School students on understanding and navigating growing anti-semitism, particularly the BDS movement on college campuses.
Be sure to support our teens going to Kolin and Israel by shopping the online auction.

There are simply no words. I am stunned and all illusions and complacency must fall away. It is time to wake up from the illusions we hold so dear. We simply may no longer say we live in a country with no racial tension, no prejudice. We cannot say that we live in a country where there is equal justice for all.

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.
