Jodie Rosh HaShana 5775We love our Sukkots and Rosh Hashanah luncheons, but we don't have many photos of congregants enjoying the food and fellowship that only happens once a year. 

 

Thanks to the photographers among us (with a shoutout to Fran Sinkoff!) who came through with pictures from the wonderful Rosh Hashanah luncheons arranged by the Membership Committee, spearheaded by Terry Royne & Bettina Stoller. And thanks to those who hosted. Smiles were bountiful, along with terrific food. The New Year certainly started off sweetly.

Please take out your smart phone and snap some shots to share with the Communications Committee! Send them to Deb Adler, twinmom4@verizon.net , so we can post the best ones on the web site and on Facebook. Thanks!

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..

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
