This week at BJBE - March 31

Dear Friends,

By now you should have received your copy of BJBE's April Bulletin. The new format is intended to educate, uplift and inspire and is organized around our five core values. In the redesign process, we moved all flyers advertising events and the detailed monthly calendar to the mid-month mailer. A list of activities will be included in the Bulletin. We will continue to announce upcoming events in the 'This Week at BJBE' email and on our website. We hope you enjoy the April Bulletin and welcome your feedback at bulletin@bjbe.org. The next edition will cover May and June.

We are pleased to announce the release of Rabbi Karyn Kedar's new book, Omer: A Counting with introduction by Rabbi Brian Stoller. The counting of the Omer begins with the escape from enslavement to the wandering path of freedom, leading to a mystical encounter with God, Sinai and Torah. This volume provides a spiritual guide for a personal journey through the Omer toward meaningful and purposeful living. Beautiful and evocative readings for each day, matched with the daily Omer blessing, offer a transformative path from Passover to Shavuot. Copies are available at ccarpress.org and amazon.com.

Thanks to Kim Gordon, Shana Geffen, Cindy Harfield and Sam Cole for organizing this fun evening. Our Purim Carnival attracted hundreds of families and indications are that it was our best ever! Thanks to the Purim committee - Jeff Miller (chair), Susie Selbst, Leah Kieffer and Sam Cole - for the countless hours and great work they put in to make this event run so smoothly. And thanks to the multitude of additional volunteers who gave so generously of their time over the weekend, providing a great Purim experience for young and old. L'shalom,

This week at BJBE - March 10

Dear Friends,

Purim is here and we have fabulous celebrations planned for the weekend. Saturday evening join clergy and fellow adult congregants for a raucous evening of learning and laughter, including an outrageously funny shpiel/megillah reading. Sunday, bring the whole family to our annual Purim carnival, Shindig in Shushan. The shpiel and junior choir start at 10:00am. Don't miss out on the games, prizes, entertainment, food and BJBE camaraderie!

Please note that Symposium is cancelled this Tuesday.

We look forward to celebrating the B'not Mitzvah of Katie Penn and Brooke Feldman at the morning service this Saturday. Mazel tov to Katie, Brooke and their families! Construction on the sanctuary is moving along at a rapid pace. There will be no entry into the construction zone Monday through Wednesday this week as insulation is installed.

L'shalom,

Arlene
