Join us as we honor Jacob Blumberg, Gabe Cooper, and Molly Liberman on their successful completion of ten years of study in the BJC Religious School.  These amazing young people have displayed the commitment to lifelong learning that is a hallmark of the Jewish people.  This special Shabbat will be a service that is, in part, of the students own creation.  Let’s k’vell with their friends and families.

Tikkun L’Eil Shavout

Old Jew

It is a tradition on Erev Shavuot to stay up late and study Torah far into the night.

We may not study until dawn as our ancestors did, but we will be up late to receive the revelation of the Torah.  We will join with the Rabbis, Hazzanim, learned teachers, and members of Adat Shalom for an evening of study of all things Jewish.  Rabbi Schnitzer will offer a little storytelling and song.

New Story Leadership Returns to BJC

New Story

For five years, our interfaith community at 6601 Bradley Boulevard has welcomed young adults from Israel and Palestine to teach about their experiences in the renowned New Story Leadership (NSL) program.  NSL is an organization that brings to the D.C. area 10-12 young-adult Israelis and Palestinians “every year for an intensive program of workshops, conferences, seminars, professional work exposure, cultural immersion and team training”.  The goal is that, with the help of NSL, these young men and women will become outstanding leaders who will be invaluable agents of change when they return to their homes in cities such as Jerusalem, Haifa, Nablus and Gaza City.

This year, the students will be joining us during our Shabbat morning service at 10:30 am and will be offering the morning sermon.  Following the service, there will be a luncheon and presentation from 12:30-3:00pm.  The cost of the luncheon is $10.
