This week at BJBE - April 25

Dear Friends,

Happy Pesach. Please join us Friday at 9:30am for a Passover Service with Yizkor.

As we enter the period of the Omer, the 49 days between Passover and Shavuot, start each day with an inspirational message. Rabbi Kedar has assembled a collection of beautiful reflections for this period. Omer: A Counting is a set of inspirational cards with a daily message created by Rabbi Karyn Kedar and is available in the Judaica Shop.  


The 2016 BJBE Gala is May 14
!

I hope you plan on joining us for this evening of Friendship, Fun & Community! Highlights include music by String Theory, a delicious menu of Carnivale inspired food, adult gaming, and a live auction with trips and once-in-a-lifetime experiences. The Gala is BJBE's major fundraiser of the year and supports our programming and ability to serve the needs of our congregation. This is sure to be a magical night and I'm looking forward to seeing you there.
