The weather might be cold, but the temperature at BJBE is always just right to dance the night away to the music of the Not for Profit band, stretch your mind with illuminating learning experiences and warm up with friends over hot toddies and chocolate. See below for an exciting array of programs in January!
BJBE will be closed on Tuesday, December 25 and Tuesday, January 1. Hebrew School resumes on January 8 and Sunday School on January 13.
Wishing you a safe and happy secular holiday season.
