Upcoming Events

COVID-19 Policy
 

Congregation B'nai Chaim will open for in-person events including religious services beginning with the Shabbat service on July 2, 2021. We are very excited to have reached this milestone! We realize that some members of our community may not be fully vaccinated for various reasons or may still be uncomfortable meeting in person, so we will continue to broadcast as many events as possible on Zoom or other platforms.

The Board of Directors has approved the following protocols (subject to review at any time) for those wishing to attend in-person events at Congregation B'nai Chaim:

  • Unvaccinated individuals are required to wear a mask and socially distance at all times when on the grounds and inside the building.
  • Masks are recommended, but not required, for children between the ages 3 and 12.
  • Vaccinated congregants, clergy, staff, and guests are not required to wear a mask when on the grounds or inside the building.

Note: The State of Colorado strongly recommends that those who are at higher risk of severe illness from COVID-19, such as those 65 years and older, living with chronic lung disease, serious heart conditions, a compromised immune system, severe obesity, diabetes, liver disease, chronic kidney disease, etc., continue using online options.

Thank you for your patience and support. We look forward to seeing you soon!
 

 
Shabbat on the Trail
 

On the morning of Saturday, July 10th we will be hitting the trail for a group hike at Silver Dollar Lake. This is an annual tradition and you are invited to join us. See this flyer for details.

Enjoy the beauty of the nearby mountains.
 

 
Highway Cleanup
 

Come on out to help your friends clean our stretch of Bowles Ave.  Dates to be announced.

Help keep our roadways clean.
 

 
Trip to Israel
 

The trip to the Land of Israel led by Rabbi Harris will be rescheduled for a later date.

The adventure of a lifetime.
 

 
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.
