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 reach out to 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 Selection for July 12, 2021

On Monday, July 12th, please join us to discuss Florence Adler Swims Forever by Rachel Beanland,  a multi-generational family story taking place in Atlantic City, 1934. During the summer, daughter Florence returns from college and is determined to train to swim the English channel. Daughter Fannie, having recently lost a baby, is on bedrest during another pregnancy. Dad Joseph insists they take in a mysterious young woman whom he helped emigrate from Nazi Germany. A tragedy occurs, and mother Esther pulls the family into an elaborate web of secrets and lies. From Goodreads review, “…Beanland is a writer of uncommon wit and wisdom, with a sharp and empathetic eye for character.”  This novel won the Jewish Book Council’s 2020 Debut Author award. 

Meetings will be held on Zoom starting at 7 p.m. All B’nai Shalom members are welcome. For more information, please contact Barbara Barry
