What's New at BJBE - February 6

Dear BJBE Members,

Even though it's only Monday, we are already looking forward to the upcoming weekend because it features some of the best our community has to offer spiritually, educationally, and socially.

As always, spirituality highlights the weekend as we join together to celebrate the Adult B'nai Mitzvah of 12 dedicated members on Shabbat Morning, February 11 at 9:30 AM. The entire congregation is invited to hear the beautiful chanting of Parshat Yitro and enjoy the seudat mitzvah (the light meal celebrating their mitzvah) immediately following services.

Educationally, BJBE's Annual JUF Brunch will be this Sunday, February 12 at 9:45 AM in our Sacred Hall. Our guest speaker will be columnist and political analyst for CBS, FOX, and MSNBC Micah Halpern. Mr. Halpern is an expert on Iran and will certainly share his observations with us.

While there are lots of community programs this weekend including a Junior Choir performance, our Men's Club Poker Tournament is always a highlight and is their primary fundraiser for the year. Try your luck and skill on Sunday, February 12 beginning at 3:30 PM.

Another reminder that the deadline is approaching for you all to participate in the mitzvah of giving gifts to friends on the holiday of Purim. This mitzvah, called Mishloach Manot, is being sponsored by our Sisterhood with the full support of Rabbi Kedar and everyone at BJBE. I encourage you all to find your personalized email containing your individual password, follow the link and place your order as soon as possible. Let's show our sacred community how much we value and cherish one another.

As always, if you have any questions about these or any other Temple programs, please feel free to contact me by clicking here or calling me at (847) 940-7575.

L'Shalom,

Marc

Dear BJBE Members,

Happy Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.

I would like to take this opportunity to draw your attention to an important ongoing opportunity here at BJBE: our Chavurot. Chavurah comes from the Hebrew word "chaver" meaning friend. A Chavurah is a group of BJBE members who gather regularly throughout the year to enrich their spiritual community. Chavurah members schedule and plan their own activities.
