Join us for a special Shabbat morning service as this year’s confirmand delivers a D’var Torah that draws upon lessons learned in this year’s Tichon class. Our students spent the year immersed in study of Jewish history, Yiddish Theater, contemporary Jewish American culture, and the social issues of the moment including rising anti-Semitism and free speech issues. Come and listen to the wisdom of a new generation.More Info
Volunteer Shabbat & Installation of New Officers
Friday June 29, 8:00 PM
A synagogue is only as dynamic and as vibrant as the people who inhabit its walls.
Without a doubt, the members of the congregation who give freely of their time and energy are a vital part of our success as a community.
Now it is time to say –THANK YOU – for the many gifts they bring to BJC every day.
Also, come and support our incoming officers and trustees as they are sworn in.
Please join us as we honor them at this special Shabbat.
For eight years our interfaith community at 6601 Bradley Blvd has welcomed young adults from Israel and Palestine to teach us about their experiences in the New Story Leadership 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 concept is that NSL will help develop these young men and women into outstanding leaders who will became invaluable change agents when they go back home to places like Jerusalem, Haifa, Nablus and Gaza City. This year, as much as ever, tensions are high between Israelis and Palestinians. Come and hear the incredible stories of hope from these young adults.
The program is free of charge. Reservations through the BJC office or website are appreciated.More Info
