Here are a few tips regarding services in the COVID-era:
 
  • In person High Holy Day Services this year will be limited to 50 people in the Sanctuary.  
  • Masks will be required.
  • Zoom will also be available for all Sanctuary scheduled services.  
  • There is a selection of outdoor events which can be found on the flyer. 
  • Please email the congregation at bnaichaim@gmail.com if you will be attending in person services and how many in your family will be attending. 
  • We will, of course, give seating preference to our members and we will let congregants know as we approach 50 attendees, so that guest seating can be determined. 
  • We would ask that you sit with your family, leaving room between groups for social distancing.
 
Wishing you a sweet new year.

Shabbat Out and About
 

Sometimes we venture away from our synagogue to celebrate Shabbat out in the community.  Besides being new and interesting, this gives the opportunity to participate to those who might otherwise not be able to attend.  We hope you can join us for Shabbat Out and About. Stay tuned for details about the next event.

The same wonderful Shabbat celebration, but at a different location.

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.
