Missed Friday's Service?
Watch the unique and beautiful Kabbalat Shabbat Healing Service, from this past Friday, September 10.
Challah Midrash Corner
Steve Siegel baked his fifth Challah Midrash (one for each book of the Torah), showing the yin and yang of the theme of blessings and curses found throughout Deuteronomy. This one is for raisin lovers!
Sign Up for Challah Midrash 5782
We've had a challah midrash each week of 5781, and we've heard from many of you that you'd like to continue! The challah midrash has certainly evolved since the lulav and etrog Karen created last Sukkot - so much creativity and inspired baking! We get such amazing feedback on how much our community enjoys this unique way to mark Shabbat.

Please contact Karen Isaacson to sign up for a parsha for 5782. Beginners Welcome!

Why We Wear White on Yom Kippur
On Yom Kippur it is customary to wear white clothing. This is mindful of purity since on Yom Kippur we spend the whole day in fasting and prayer—and are considered as pure and holy as the angels. Some people wear a kittel, a white robe worn over the clothing because it is similar to the burial shroud which serves to remind us of man’s mortality and the need for teshuvah (repentance). 

This year, we encourage the Beth Emet community to join together on Yom Kippur to wear white to honor this tradition. It might be a white dress, a white shirt, or a white sweater. Imagine an entire sanctuary filled with folks in simple, white clothing— a collective sign of thoughtfulness and special commitment, perhaps to some higher power, or perhaps to the community, or to one’s self, but in any event, to a fresh start and a clean slate.

BE Connected is an opportunity for groups with similar interests to come together as well as opportunities for conversation around various topics. What better way to engage with the Beth Emet community, try something new, and connect when we have a bit more time on our hands? Given our new reality, this initiative will start virtually, but we hope that this will continue once life returns to normal. 
 
Each week you will receive a dedicated email with a listing of opportunities for the next two weeks. If you do not have access to a web camera for a video call, we will include phone numbers as well. And if you have an idea as we expand the reach of BE Connected, contact Marti Netler.
 
We look forward to seeing you very soon.
