Comparing Retirement Communities?
SCOTCH PLAINS – Congregation Beth Israel will hold a Shabbat
service specially designed for children from infants to age 6 and their
families tomorrow, Friday, October 10, from 6:30 to 7:15 p.m.
Called the Shabbat Shalom Club,
this service will be free and open
to the community.
The Shabbat Shalom Club, held
monthly, is led by Congregation
Beth Israel’s Rabbi George Nudell
and Cantor Matt Axelrod. Services
include age-appropriate prayers
and songs, plus a story with a kidfriendly Jewish message. Participants in the Shabbat Shalom Club
also enjoy a special Kiddush, complete with grape juice, mini challah
and matzo ball soup.
Because October’s Shabbat Shalom Club falls during Sukkot, children and their families also will
have the opportunity to eat their
treats in the Sukkah and celebrate
the holiday together.
“We started the Shabbat Shalom
Club last year. It was such a success among young families that we
were eager to continue the program again this year,” said Lisa
Strug, Member Relations chairwoman of Congregation Beth Israel. “In the Shabbat Shalom Club,
young children can start learning
Jewish prayers and customs and
can begin to feel comfortable interacting with the clergy. And their
parents can meet one another while
they, too, celebrate Shabbat.”
The Shabbat Shalom Club also will
meet on November 21, December
12, January 9, February 13, March
20, April 24, May 8 and June 19.
In addition, Congregation Beth
Israel conducts regular Shabbat
services every Friday evening starting at 7:30 p.m., followed by an
Oneg Shabbat. These casual services are held in the round and are
family-friendly. Shabbat morning
services are held weekly on Saturdays beginning at 9:30 a.m., followed by a Kiddush luncheon. All
services are free and open to the
community.
Congregation Beth Israel is an
egalitarian Conservative synagogue.
For more information, call the
synagogue at (908) 889-1830. Congregation Beth Israel is located at
18 Shalom Way, at the corner of
Martine Avenue, in Scotch Plains.

topic of vanishing pollinators and
is recognized as an author, photographer and public speaker who
presents a passionate concern for
environmental issues. She will
speak about the precipitous decline
of monarch butterflies and the absence of bees in area gardens.
TIME-HONORED TRADITION...Volunteers from the Men’s Club of Congregation Beth Israel in Scotch Plains built the synagogue’s Sukkah (booth) on the
outdoor patio September 28, in preparation for the Jewish holiday of Sukkot.
