Special Shabbat Programming
Joint Shabbat Services with Shaare Tefilah and Torah Ethics for Our Times
When? Friday, May 14 at 6:00 p.m. Join Rabbi Grossman and Cantor Apt as they share the bima with Rabbi Jonah Layman at Shaare Tefila, our sister shul, for Friday Night Shabbat Services. Services will be held over Zoom with a special Zoom link just for this service!
When? Saturday, May 15 at 9:30 a.m. Join us for Shabbat morning services lead by Rabbi Grossman and Cantor Apt. Guest speakers Laura Salganik and Rachel Simon, from the Jewish Federation of Howard County will address the Howard County Jewish Community study and levels of affiliation and practice.
When? Tuesdays beginning May 4 at 7:00 p.m. Ever wonder why Abraham is considered the first Jew? What do Jews mean by covenant? How does Judaism view Jesus? Or other similar questions? This class is perfect for non-Jewish parents of Jewish children, those considering conversion and their Jewish significant others, and anyone who wants to strengthen their basic knowledge of Judaism. Participants are asked to complete an open book review of Jewish knowledge in preparation for the class as a basis upon which to begin discussion. (Don’t worry if you can’t answer the questions!) Answers can be found online at jewishvirtuallibrary.org and myjewishlearning.com and/or in the recommended reference book: Essential Judaism: A Complete Guide to Beliefs, Customs, and Rituals by George Robinson. Available from smile.amazon.com. Please list Beth Shalom as your charity of preference.
