As We Begin A New Week

Water does not resist. Water flows. When you plunge your hand into it, all you feel is a caress. Water is not a solid wall, it will not stop you. But water always goes where it wants to go, and nothing in the end can stand against it. Water is patient. Dripping water wears away a stone.

Remember that, my child.

Remember you are half water.

If you can't go through an obstacle, go around it.

Water does.

-Margaret Atwood (The Penelopiad)

Our Newly Renovated Kitchen Bernstein Activity Center

"Virtual" Kitchen Shower Continues!

Thank you for joining Ruth, the Bernstein family, and our community as we celebrated our beautifully renovated kitchen made possible through her generosity. It was a memorable and perfect morning and we are so grateful to Ruth for this extraordinary gift to B'nai Jacob.

While many items have already been purchased, our virtual kitchen shower has not ended! Please call Nancy if you interested in making a purchase or donation. 

Introducing: Wondering Jews

The One Stop For All Things Jewish in West Virginia

Wondering Jews, Inc. is a nonprofit organization with the goal of connecting people who are physically or geographically challenged with the wide variety of educational, service, and faith activities in the local West Virginia Jewish congregations.

Moe and Janie Rubenstein have created a unique website which will allow all congregations and Jewish organizations who wish to announce activities and programs of interest for Jews throughout West Virginia. We have seen at B'nai Jacob how Zoom has opened the door to those who are challenged to allow people in isolation to join and be a part of our B'nai Jacob family.

I am proud to announce that the website is now live and will offer us and Jews around our state an opportunity to further connect and be together. You can even sign up for the American Jewish Committee program on that platform as well.

Check out Wondering Jews in the months to come and in the words of the Machzor (High Holiday Prayerbook), may we all be bound together, connected to each other.

Don’t miss ExploringJudaism.org, the digital home for Conservative Judaism. This site features a wide range of topics and creators including weekly Torah content (with study guides) thanks to our partners at the Fuchsberg Jerusalem Center & Conservative Yeshiva.
