Volunteers Welcome to help kids in Detroit
It only takes a few hours per week to make a difference in a child's life.  Join our tutoring group at Bennett Elementary School in Southwest Detroit.  We will arrange for a carpool for you to do one-on-one tutoring with students who just need someone to read and discuss with them.  You can do this without any special training!  Choose from a schedule of days and times.  It's easy and SO worthwhile.

We are currently studying Brachot, the first section of the Talmud.  Interested?  Contact Mitch:  mitch@bnaiisraelwb.org

"You too can give a D'var Torah"  
Between October 29th and January 14 we will read the book of Braishit. This first book of Torah scroll the Torah is full of stories of love, conflict and intrigue as families try to grapple with both the mundane and the extraordinary.  Here is your chance to prepare a dvar Torah on the lives of our earliest ancestors and their families.  If you are interested, please let Mitch know.  A little secret: the preparation is often the best part of the process.

Travel and Learn:
If you are interested in being on the organizing committee for a potential B'nai Israel tour of the Jewish South, please contact Mitch:  mitch@bnaiisraelwb.org.
