Fundraising for B'nai Sholom is easy, painless, and -- best of all -- FREE. Pre-paid grocery cards from Hannaford and ShopRite, and Internet shopping through our web page portal both net funds for the congregation, with no surcharge for shoppers. What's not to love?  Further Information..

Youth Groups

Israel Education & Advocacy

IsraelADULTS -- Over 100 people have traveled on our 8 congregational trips to Israel in 1995, 1997, 1999, 2001, 2003, 2005, 2007, and 2012.  From age 3 1/2 to over 80, we've gone from the Golan Heights up north to Eilat in the south, and once went over to Petra in Jordan.  While our itinerary varies each time, we always spend plenty of time in Jerusalem, and visit Safed, Masada, the Dead Sea, and Tel Aviv.

HIGH SCHOOL -- We provide scholarships for our High School students to visit Israel on Summer programs.  Our students have gone on trips sponsored by NFTY, Ramah Seminar, HaShomer HaTza'ir, BBYO,Young Judea, and Nesiya.

COLLEGE -- Many college students from B'nai Sholom have gone on Birthright-Taglit trips to Israel, FREE trips for students ages 18-29.  Our members can get priority status for KESHER Refrom Movement trips by contacting Rabbi Cashman
