Tales of the Holy Mysticat leads readers through thousands of years of Jewish thought, history and practices, based on behavior of her newly adopted shelter cat.   A collection of whimsical stories interspersed with cleverly drawn black-and-white illustrations, it provides unique insights into Jewish mysticism by one of our most profoundly creative scholars.

Transition… hybrid… these are the words we’ll be hearing a lot of in the coming months. As each month passes, and more of the population and our congregation has access to vaccination, we are looking forward with hope and optimism to being able to do more together as the year progresses. Of course, the better weather as spring turns to summer will help too, as we begin to offer more opportunities to gather outdoors. We are hoping to do that for some of the last weeks of the Religious school year, and also for our Friday evening Shabbat gatherings, beginning in May, weather permitting.

Welcoming our Confirmands into the Congregation is an inspiring moment not only for friends and family, but for all members of Congregation B’nai Shalom. Our congregation will celebrate Confirmation which will occur on the eve of Shavuot on Sunday, May 16th at 6:00 p.m. The Confirmation/Shavuot creative service will be led by our Confirmands and will take place outside in the rear parking lot.

Message from Steven

Back in November, I wrote about the many programs and organizations that exist under the umbrella of the URJ.  Last month, I mentioned one which has had a great impact on our family:  URJ Heller High. Our daughter Kaila attended in the Spring of 2017. It is no exaggeration to say that her semester there was life-changing.

Heller High is a semester program open to high school sophomores, juniors, and seniors.  Students live and study together on Kibbutz Tzuba.
