The tragedy, the devastation, and the heroism and resilience of Oklahoma City has affected us all. BJBE congregants are compassionate and determined to do what they can and respond when called upon. Even as the mission to New Orleans leaves on Thursday, members are reaching out to us to organize a mission to Oklahoma City. This Friday night I will be talking about the events of the past week as well as honoring our veterans on this Memorial Day weekend. I will also announce a BJBE emergency relief team that is in formation that will have the ability to respond to disasters, including this current one. In the meantime, I have asked Cantor Wolman with Dr. Gary Schaffel to explore a brief mission to Oklahoma on June 7-9th.

Our annual mission to New Orleans takes place this Memorial Day weekend. The NOLA team collected an impressive amount of donated goods to help the underserved, many still recovering from the devastating effects of Hurricane Katrina, including 56 boxes of clothes, 95 boxes of toys/games and 32 bicycles. We congratulate the group and wish them a safe and meaningful experience.
