Weekend of 5/24 — Adult Bnei Mitzvah & Outdoor Service

Dear B’ShERT family and friends,

This Friday evening’s Shabbat service is going to be very special. Eight of our members have been studying together for over two years in our adult brit mitzvah class. Now that they’ve completed it, we are celebrating! Our service will include a Torah service with multiple Torah readers and divrei Torah. If you can come in person to honor these scholars, please do! If not, please join us on Zoom if you can. Mazal tov to Mary Lou Criqui, Janice Essa, Diane Figueroa, Sylvia Kaplan, Diane Kesten, Ellyn Rothstein, Charlotte Russell, and Phyllis Schweiger.

We will have a second special Shabbat observance on Saturday, with our annual outdoor Shabbat Morning at the Marine Park Salt Marsh Nature Center, 3301 Avenue U. Parking is limited. We hope to see you there (and we hope the weather permits us to be there)! Note there is no religious school due to the holiday weekend.
