Calling Beth Am College Students!

We want to help all of our college students feel connected to their congregation and synagogue while they are living at school. Our volunteers send notes and gifts to the students. If you have a high school graduate as of June, 2019 or a current college student please let us know. We’d love to stay in touch! For questions contact Joyce Epelboim, Kelly Krum or Bonna Weinstein.

Two opportunities to observe Tisha b’Av!
Saturday, August 10, Erev Tisha b’Av. Join Rabbi Leib at Beth Sholom Congregation at 7:35 p.m. a light meal will be served, 8:00 p.m. Mincha, 8:45 p.m. Ma’ariv and Reading of the Book of Lamentations. Sunday, August 11 – 12:00 p.m., Tisha b’Av is a day of mourning and reflecting – a time when we remember the destruction of Jerusalem and the upheaval and suffering of the exile of the Jewish people from our homeland. At 12:00 p.m., Sunday, August 11, we invite you to join with Rabbi Shoshanah Tornberg, and under the auspices of the Philadelphia Board of Rabbis, gather near Independence Hall to affirm our commitment to the core Jewish value of Kavod Habriot, the basic dignity of all of God’s creation. As we remember the pain of dispersal and what it means to wander unprotected, we remember that all humanity was created b’Tzelem Elohim, in God’s image, and we are obligated to Love the Stranger, as well as our fellow, as ourselves.
