Upcoming In-Person and Virtual Activities & Events

We are working to provide virtual activities so that we can continue to serve our community safely. A list of activities open to the congregation and community will be updated regularly here.

 
 B'nai Torah Blood Drive with the American Red Cross  - Tuesday, April 27 from 10AM - 3PM
To assist the greater community, B’nai Torah is helping the American Red Cross as a blood donation site twice a month as many of their regular drive locations are currently unable to host. We hope you will sign up for one of our upcoming drives as one donation can save up to three lives! During the COVID-19 crisis, your donation is crucial in helping support patients' needs. If you are unavailable this month, look out for emails with more opportunities to donate.

 Congregational Lag Ba'Omer Cookout and Baccalaureate Ceremony  - Friday, April 30 at 6:30PM
We invite you to join us for a Congregational Lag Ba'Omer Cookout and Baccalaureate Ceremony on Friday, April 30 at 6:30PM outdoors and online via zoom. Please complete this reservation form to attend. As we count 49 days from Passover to Shavuot, the 33rd day of counting has special significance as it marks a transition into the more celebratory portion of our counting. Based on the mystical significance of Lag Ba'Omer, the day is traditionally celebrated with bonfires and cookouts. B'nai Torah will celebrate with a cookout catered by Keith's Corner BBQ for our community after services. During our Friday night service, we will also highlight graduating high school seniors from within our community, and join together to wish them a "Mazel Tov" on this next chapter of their lives.
