High Holy Days 2022/5783

From Rabbi Philip Sherman - 

When we recognize where we are, and what we need to celebrate these holidays, we open ourselves up to the power of saying, hinneni, here I am. Hinneni is a powerful statement of spiritual readiness, as well as a symbol of recognition that the physical spaces in which we choose to pray are valid and worthy, and shape the fullness of our BJBE community.


Our staff and clergy have been hard at work preparing for extraordinary services and programming to share with you during this High Holy Day season. Whether you will be joining us virtually or in-person, we look forward to seeing you in our sacred spaces. No matter how you say hinneni, we believe you will find great meaning in these moments together. 






BJBE is an inclusive and welcoming community. We encourage participation from all who seek a connection to Jewish life and want to be part of our sacred community regardless of religious background, race, ethnicity, gender, socioeconomic status, political affiliation, ability, age, sexual orientation, and gender identity. We encourage all to participate in our community, regardless of knowledge of Hebrew or Judaism.

BJBE offers dynamic, innovative programming. We provide an active community to those who wish to make a difference, a caring community to those less fortunate, and a nurturing community to those seeking connection.
