Farewell to Rabbi Joel and Ziva
Saturday, August 15, 7:00 PM

Our beloved Rabbi Emeritus Joel and Ziva Schwartzman have decided to relocate East in order to be close to their kids and grandkids.  As sad as it is to see them go, we share their joy at this transition.  Join us as we celebrate their time with us and wish them well in their future home.

So many memories to celebrate!


Shabbat In The Park
Friday August 21, 6:00 PM

Come one, come all to our annual Pot Luck at Shelter #6 in Clement Park, Littleton. This event is always one of the most delightful get-togethers of the year. The park in Summer is stunningly beautiful. Everyone sighs when the rays of the setting sun are reflected in the lake.

It promises to be a lovely and fun evening with music, food, prayer, and community. The Board of Directors will be providing chicken. We ask that everyone else bring a non-dairy side dish or a dessert, which we will eat for our Oneg Shabbat following the service.

After dinner, Shabbat Services will be led by Cantor Kim Harris, Spiritual Leader of B'nai Chaim.  Please bring interested friends and family!

Join us for a wonderfully uplifting evening.


"Shabbat Out and About" is a new program at B'nai Chaim. Every month or two we get together to celebrate Shabbat out in the community.

Last event: Friday, February 6. Dinner at 6:00 PM. Services at 7:30 PM. Details here.

Celebrate Shabbat with your friends.

Learn Hebrew

B'nai Chaim offers several adult Hebrew classes:

Beginner and One Level Up from Aleph Bet -- Taught by Sandy at the Temple on Sundays from 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM and/or Wednesday. The books used are the "Aleph Isn't Tough" series (1-5) by Linda Motzkin. It is available on Amazon. The class usually follows the Religious School schedule, but different arrangements are occasionally made, so please stay in touch with Sandy.

Please note: A $36 contribution to Religious School is requested as tuition, and students need to buy their own books.

Haven't you always wanted to learn a bit more Hebrew?

10 Minutes of Torah

Who among us is so busy that he or she cannot spend 10 minutes a day in the study of a Jewish text? Just 10 minutes? Such a commitment would enable us to meet our Jewish obligation to make Jewish study a fixed occurrence. We make time to answer our cell phones a dozen times a day and to check our email five times an hour...

... surely we can find 10 minutes to contemplate sacred words that nourish the soul.
