Dear Friends,

Support the Israeli artisans showing at BJBE on Sunday from 10:00am - 3:00pm. Bring your family and friends to shop a variety of handcrafted tallit, jewelry, art and Judaica items. Our support aids the Israeli merchants who have been impacted by the downturn in Israeli tourism this summer. We are pleased to be co-sponsoring this event with 9 other synagogues & organizations. Click here for more information.

Dedication weekend is almost here! Please mark your calendar for our Sanctuary dedication on Friday, September 5. We will have two identical Dedication Shabbat Services at 6:00pm & 8:00pm with a festive celebratory oneg following each.

What better way to say goodbye to summer and usher in the New Year than with a Gala Celebration to commemorate the completion of our Sanctuary! Join the community for a festive night of drinks, dinner, dessert, and dancing on September 7 at 5:30 PM. The Not For Profit Band will be providing the sound track to this joyous evening. Take out your finest cocktail attire and join us for a celebration not to be forgotten. This is the only Gala of the 2014/15 year. Click here to register.
