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 Selections for August 24 and October 5

On Monday August 24, we will discuss The World That We Knew, a story that combines the fantastical and the mortal, by bestselling author Alice Hoffman. In 1941 Berlin, a mother sends her 12-year-old daughter away to the home of a renowned rabbi to save her from impending doom. The rabbi’s daughter offers hope of salvation by creating a female golem who is sworn to protect the young woman. Once the golem is brought to life, the three women become eternally entwined, their paths fated to cross, and their fortunes linked. This novel won the Jewish Book Council’s 2019 award for Best Book Club book. 

On Monday October 5, we will discuss An Unorthodox Match by Naomi Ragen. In this novel, a modern-day fast-track California Jewish woman, Leah, loses her job and fiancé. She decides to take the radical step of seeking spirituality and meaning far outside of her current life, into an ultraorthodox community in Boro Park, Brooklyn. Fate brings her to meet the newly widowed Torah scholar Jacob, whose life is in turmoil, raising five children and struggling in his yeshiva role. Her new community forces her into a deeper understanding of the choices she now faces.  

Meetings will be held via Zoom starting at 7 p.m (until temple reopens). All B’nai Shalom members are welcome. For more information, please contact Barbara Barry.
