The High Holidays brought together the community of Beth Israel Synagogue. Click here to read Rabbi
On the social scene, we have enjoyed pot lucks, Sukkots, swim parties, and game nights. Sunday School is in session with Bnai Abraham in Meriden. This has been a very successful endeavor as our children have the benefit of excellent teaching and resources.
The women of the synagogue have enjoyed getting together on Rosh Chodesh at various homes with pot luck and a teaching on subjects pertaining to women.
As for adult education, we have been blessed by wonderful teaching from Rabbi Alpert. To name a few subjects: End of Life Issues, Why care about Israel, the History of Judaism, Learn Hebrew as well as Biblical Hebrew .
Our Saturday morning Torah study, Rabbi Alpert along with the wonderful input of Rabbi Sommer leads us into wonderful discussion. For many of us, this has not only been informative but life changing as well. This has been one of our most attended activities.
Of great note is our free annual second night Family Passover Seder. This is open to the Jewish community and our last one was very well attended with nearly eighty people in attendance. Our congregation also focuses on community service, as we sponsor a blood drive at Zandri's Inn several times a year.
