BJBE Virtual Villages

Knowing that we are all experiencing the stress and isolation of social and physical distancing, BJBE would like to offer an opportunity to create "Virtual Villages" to help maintain community, connection, and care. These Virtual Villages are a way that BJBE members can connect with other congregants on issues of interest and shared hobbies. These Virtual Villages will meet weekly at a specific time each week via Zoom.

Click here to learn more. Contact Anne Richardson Robbin (arobbin@bjbe.org) with any questions. We look forward to maintaining our connections and building new relationships - from a safe and social distance!

In good health,
Ethan A. Berghoff and Sonya Jacobs Morgan
Virtual Villages Co-Chairs

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.
