Major Jewish Holidays

B’nai Shalom organizes a variety of shul-wide programs that educate, entertain and connect members to Jewish practice, ideas, values, culture and of course one another. Many of these events are part of our Shabbat and holiday celebrations throughout the Jewish calendar year. Click Here for a Slide Show from some of our Events
In addition to participating in the rituals associated with each holiday, we bring the community together for some creative programs that make the occasions more fun and memorable. Our City Slickers Western-style Sukkah party and our Lag B’omer Luau or the Megillah Madness Basketball Tournament for Purim night are just a few examples of how we aim to increase the joy of those taking part in the festivities. Of course, food, games and music are a welcome component of these events.
Our “Jewish Journeys” program is a series of conversations in members’ homes. Over 170 families were represented in our first year, “Our Jewish Past,” where members shared their backgrounds and lessons learned over the years. We came to know each other better, and grew the fabric of our community. In the fall of 2016, we continued the conversations with “Our Jewish Future.” Contact Rabbi Tobin for more information about these profound and meaningful experiences for members of our congregation.
Each year we also arrange group trips to museums and the theater and we have screened relevant films and heard lectures from guest speakers on Israel, Jewish History and Jewish Composers. We have also hosted Jewish a Capella singing groups and held musical concerts that enrich our lives at B’nai Shalom.
For young families, we have gone apple picking, celebrated Noah at the Turtle Back Zoo, held early Shabbat services and dinners followed by engaging entertainment for the children and parents, witnessed Havdallah under the stars and celebrated grandparents and other significant family members on a Shabbat for the children.
We invite new ideas of how we can better engage you in your Jewish life here and welcome your involvement in our programs to enhance your experience as part of the B’nai Shalom Community.
For additional information or to share an idea, please contact Leslie Gleaner, our Programing Coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
