Jewish Cultural Trip – Join the B’ShERT Jewish Cultural Committee and Union Temple of Brooklyn for their 8th Annual Getaway Weekend Trip, Saturday, Nov. 16-Sunday, Nov. 17th. Must register by October 31st. Contact Yvette Pomeranz at email@example.com for pricing, registration, or if you have any questions.
Remember the Little Free Pantry—On the Church Avenue side of the building is our Little Free Pantry, built by the b’nei mitzvah class a couple of years ago. We stock it with food and toiletry items for members of the greater community to take if they need them. Items placed in the pantry are almost always gone within a few hours, so there is always room for more. Please bring non-perishable, desirable, unopened, unexpired food or new, packaged toiletry items (diapers, wipes, shampoos and soaps, toothpaste, mouthwash, sanitary pads and tampons, etc.) when you think of it. You may put items directly in the pantry or leave them in Rabbi’s office. Thank you!
What’s Your Name Again? – As our consolidated congregation continues to get acquainted, the Membership Committee suggests that when you attend Temple events you wear the name tag/lanyard you received at High Holy Days services. (Let us know if you need a lanyard.)
Women of B’ShERT Lecture: Artist Jonathan Blum 10/19

Shabbat Services to follow
Guest Speaker – Artist Jonathan Blum
Topic: Jonathan’s Art, Fanciful to Realistic
The Sisterhood of B’ShERT proudly welcomes artist Jonathan Blum. Mr. Blum was a Washington, DC native, who studied at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. He considers himself to be first and foremost a portrait painter whose work ranges from the fanciful to the classically realistic. In 1994, he studied with an inspirational Rabbi in Israel and before long he was painting fictitious portraits of orthodox rabbis. This was a stylistic breakthrough for him. Mr. Blum is currently living in Park Slope, where he has a storefront and studio. He will be exhibiting various pieces of art he has created.
You can learn more about Jonathan Blum’s work and aesthetic at his website https://www.jonathanblumportraits.com/.
