Deepest heartfelt thanks for BJ in my life! You are my spiritual home and one of my life’s treasures.
B'nai Jeshurun's Celebration of Community
A Heart of Many Rooms
We hope that you enjoyed our June 16 community-wide celebration for all generations. We affirmed the strength of the deep communal connection that has been sustaining us so powerfully during this time, and lifted up the voices of our community while honoring the essential workers and volunteers among us.
We embraced those who have experienced important lifecycle moments during this time, and celebrated the ways that our connections have been strengthened through our commitment to one another. As we seek to continue strengthening these bonds, we invite you to help sustain our efforts in virtual connection with your generous support.
Thank you for your continued support of our sacred community.
Every Shabbat morning our spiritual leaders have come together to lead us in prayer services streamed from our 101 year old sanctuary on 88th Street, with over 3,000 weekly views.
Our Family Life and Learning Facebook page has welcomed over 35,000 minutes of viewing from children of all ages enjoying bedtime stories and Shema, Bim Bam, and Tot Shabbat programming.
Our community members experienced many Jewish firsts while home over the past 3 months including virtual Passover seders, hosting Zoom Shabbat dinners, and their first attempts at challah baking.
We reinforced our commitment through Race and Us to undo racism day in and day out in our community, and in partnership with other communities.
Our BJ professional staff and spiritual leaders shifted every prayer and ritual service, administrative function, social justice and learning opportunity all while creating new ways to bridge the gap between physical distance and social connection. They even made the time to connect as a community playing trivia games and uplifting one another during times of need.
