Adult Singing Group with Hazzan Weber

The group meets Monday evenings at 7:30 pm to 8:30 pm and sings both secular Israeli music and sacred music. The chorale will get together for musical camaraderie and we will have performances as well. They will have many venues to perform, from services, to choir concerts, to aged care facilities.  All skill levels are welcome. Please consider trying this out if you weren't here for the first sessions. We need more singers and your input.

 Evening Minyan Alternates Each Month Between Beth Sholom and AJ

In order to insure a minyan at every service, Beth Sholom and Adath Jeshurun will pray together Sunday to Thursday evenings:

Guess Who's Coming to Shabbas

Beth Sholom Congregation is excited to participate in the "Guess Who's Coming to Shabbas?" program. The program involves congregants inviting other congregants to their homes for Shabbat dinners, and then those guests become hosts (if able) in subsequent months. Reciprocity is not expected. The goal is to include as many families as possible so that a few times per year, hundreds of us will be sharing Shabbat dinner. For more details, click here.
