Oneg Captain Program

The Oneg Captain Program is overseen by Sisterhood's Oneg Coordinator. Captains coordinate the hosts and assist them with the setup and cleanup of the Oneg. Captains participate three to four times a year in rotation. New volunteers to the program receive training prior to captaining on their own. If you are an adult member of the congregation and would like to participate in this Manageable Mitzvah, please contact the Sisterhood Oneg Coordinator. To sponsor an Oneg, please go to our form and document page to download the Sponsorship Form.


Sisterhood-Sponsored Book Group

B’nai Shalom Book Group for May, July, and August

On Monday, May 14, we will discuss Suddenly, Love, a story of a unique friendship by Israeli author Aharon Appelfeld. Ernst, a Ukrainian Red Army veteran, disclaimed his Jewish roots as a young communist who persecuted Jews. Now 70 and in ill health, he is writing his memoirs, coming to the terms with his past beliefs, and seeking forgiveness. He engages Irena, age 36, whose deceased parents were Holocaust survivors, as his caregiver. Ernst and Irena form an inspiring bond that expands our understanding of forgiveness (www.goodreads.com).

On Monday, July 9, we will discuss Jewish Comedy: A Serious History by Columbia Professor Jeremy Dauber. Organized by continents and centuries, the book traces the origins of Jewish comedy and its development from biblical times to the age of Twitter, enabling us to see how comedy has mirrored the course of Jewish history. Reviewer Shlomo Maital comments, “… Dauber shows how Jewish comedy is in fact a window into the minds and souls of the Jewish people through the ages — our fears, hopes, joys, sorrows, tragedies, victories, and complex relationship with our Maker. You can read it for deep insights, or simply for the humor.”

Our August meeting is scheduled for Thursday, August 23. Book selection to be announced.
Meetings are held at B’nai Shalom at 7 pm. All B’nai Shalom members are welcome.

 To be included in our monthly book discussion please contact the temple office staff .
