 Family Estrangement Support Group with Rabbi Beiner - 3 Meetings - Tuesdays, January 10, February 21, and March 14 from 7PM-8PM
Family estrangements are as old as our biblical ancestors, whose stories seldom ended with "happily ever after." Many people today experience deeply complicated family situations that give rise to emotions including anger, sadness, and resentment. The purpose of this group will be to provide support, encouragement, resources, and compassion to those who are experiencing family estrangement. Facilitators: Rabbi Beiner and Ilene Abrams

We are a welcoming group that would love to have you join in on our fun! If you have ideas of things you’d love to do, we’d love to help you make it happen. Also, feel free to invite friends and family who may not be affiliated with B'nai Torah. We love to meet new people and expand our community! Contact Rabbi Breit for more information.

Brotherhood Events & Programs:

Our mission is to promote social interaction and greater involvement in the synagogue. We like to think that Brotherhood is an excellent way to meet other members of the Shul on an informal basis given our wide variety of programs. Our four areas of focus are: Religion, Sports, Social, and Community. While some of our programs are Brotherhood-only, the majority are open to the broader Shul community and may be family-oriented or take place in conjunction with other B'nai Torah groups. From a ruach perspective, the Brotherhood is responsible for High Holiday ushering and leading participation in the World Wide Wrap.

Brotherhood Poker - on hiatus until further notice. 


Young Family & ECHAD Events & Programs:

B'nai Torah Young Family programs are for families with children in 2nd grade and under. Our Early Childhood Activities Department (ECHAD) programs are more appropriate for families with children ages 5 and under.
