This week at BJBE - April 20

Dear Friends,

We are so proud of the strong interest in the Men's Israel trip that begins this weekend. Rabbi Stoller and Ezra Kedar are leading a group of 22 participants to experience The Land of Israel through the Eyes of the Sages. Examples of stops include the Jaffa port (the place from which Jonah departed to flee from God), Bet Shearim (the location of the Sanhedrin - the great rabbinical court of the ancient period), and Mount Gilboa overlooking the Jezreel Valley (where King Saul fell on his sword while being hotly pursued by the Philistines).  We wish them a safe and inspirational journey.  

 Be an active participant in electing ARZA delegates representing the Reform Movement to the World Zionist Congress. The deadline for voting in the WZO election is April 30 and we need the support of the BJBE community. If you have already voted, thank you. If you haven't, please take a moment to participate.  

Please see the full article for information on these and other programs  

We look forward to celebrating the Bar Mitzvah of Aaron Cole at the morning service and the Bat Mitzvah of Landyn Sparacino at the Havdalah service this Saturday. Mazel tov to Aaron, Landyn and their families. 

As the school year nears its end, please take a  moment to check the Lost & Found in the office workroom. We have collected many jackets, hats, gloves and backpacks. All unclaimed items will be donated.

   

L'shalom
