Support CBS Friday Night Lights!

Our sanctuary is an amazing space with its simple tranquility, natural light and openness complemented by the bursts of color from the ark doors. However, our ritual moments are a hodgepodge of non-matching, not in great shape ritual items. And,  in the sanctuary lobby, underneath a beautiful set of festival quilts that were gifted to us, is a bookshelf in need of replacement. We are also noticeably missing a bin for Kippot, and a rack for our Tallitot.

Help us invest in a set of ritual items, bookshelves and ritual item displays to make the foyer just outside the sanctuary as breathtaking as the sanctuary itself. We are calling the campaign "Friday Night Lights", and you can donate to this effort here.


With great joy we invite you to join us this Shavuot in celebration of a special moment in the life of our congregation as we are led in worship by our tenth grade Confirmation students:

 

Kendal August, Courtney Blumberg, Emily Bruck, Natalie Chace, Eva Drotch, Samantha Edinberg, Jonah Epstein, Samantha Feldman, Ethan Freshman, Michael Greystone, Brett Harmon, Aaron Janecek, Benjamin Main Sobel, Elijah Mecenas, Leah Mintz, Joel Rosen, Benjamin Rosenfeld & Rebecca Sherr

The service begins at 7:00PM

Followed by a special Oneg Chag

A Message from Rabbi Gurevitz

Israel after the elections
On April 9, the people of Israel voted in general elections. The results were not all that surprising, but here is a general summary of some of the key observations, gleaned, in part, from a communication that was shared by our Jewish Federation of Central MA.

Rabbi Eiduson

A Message from Rabbi Eiduson

As my twelfth school year at Congregation B’nai Shalom ends, I want to take this opportunity to thank the many people who have helped to make this year a strong year of learning, community, and growth.
It is clear to me, and to everyone who enrolls a child into our school, that the strength of this school is our faculty. They share their love of Judaism with our students — passing on Jewish texts and traditions in innovative and exciting ways.

A Message from Rob

Religious school is about to wrap up for the year and we will soon drift into the quieter summer months at B’nai Shalom. Rabbi Eiduson, Debbie Morin, Rabbi Gurevitz, our teachers, Steven Goldstein — our VP of Education, our lay volunteers, and many others are already hard at work planning for next year’s religious school. I am incredibly grateful for our religious school, Joe’s leadership, and our teachers and volunteers who continue to develop and create programs to make it a fun and fulfilling experience for our students rather than just more school.
