Our BJBE community was fortunate to spend time this past weekend worshiping with and learning from our Scholar-in-Residence, Rabbi Gary Zola. From a stirring sermon that began with an illuminating historical look at our congregation to a new perspective on Abraham Lincoln as a man who possessed a "Jewish Soul," the weekend was filled with connection and learning. I'd like to extend a special thank you to the Scholar-in-Residence Committee, skillfully co-chaired by Karyn Benson and Gloria Kaiz, to Dina Zirlin and Gail Brodson for organizing a beautiful and delicious Rabbi's Table luncheon, and to the many volunteers who decorated, set-up, baked and greeted.
I am pleased to be joining the BJBE delegation in San Diego this week for my first URJ Biennial and look forward to exploring new ideas about Reform Judaism and synagogue life that will benefit BJBE. Rabbi Kedar, Cantor Frost and Cantor Wolman will be leading worship services and/or presenting workshop sessions. Please check the BJBE website, Facebook page and Twitter for updates on Biennial and ways you can join virtually.
Join us this Friday evening when we offer a special tribute to the legacy of Nelson Mandela at our Shabbat service with music by Soul Zimra.
Our Lost and Found (located in the office workroom) is once again overflowing. We will be donating all unclaimed items at the end of the year. Please stop by and take a look for those missing jackets, sweaters, boots, gloves, hats and more.

We write to you today with an urgent plea for help. One of the members of our BJBE family, Dr. Gary Greenberg, is in dire need of a life-saving kidney transplant from a living donor. Without a transplant, Gary is facing kidney-failure within the next 3-6 months. Unfortunately, not one of Gary's immediate family members is a viable donor, which is why we are turning to you. It will take only one person who is both a match and a willing donor to save Gary’s life. You or someone you know could be that person. There are two things you can do to help:
