Colorful Shabbat Family Worship


At the Colorful Shabbat Family Service on December 1 Cindy Baulsir presented Rabbi Bearman with a copy of Mishkan HaNefesh For Youth with a congratulatory inscription along with another copy for Rabbi Bearman to inscribe for the Temple Bnai Chaim library.

At the Colorful Shabbat Family Service on December 1 Cindy Baulsir presented Rabbi Bearman with a copy of Mishkan HaNefesh For Youth with a congratulatory inscription along with another copy for Rabbi Bearman to inscribe for the Temple B'nai Chaim library.

As many of you know, over the past two years, Rabbi Bearman has been helping to create the Central Conference of American Rabbis' new mahzor (High Holy Day prayer book) for families. We are very ...excited to share that this new prayer book has been published!

Mishkan HaNefesh For Youth includes the commitment to creative poetry and readings that we see in our new mahzor, Mishkan HaNefesh, as well as the easy accessibility (and beautiful art!) of our Family Service prayer book, Mishkan T'filah For Youth.

In addition to serving on the Advisory Group for Mishkan HaNefesh For Youth, Rabbi Bearman also wrote multiple prayers that are included in the prayer book. We wish Rabbi Bearman "MAZEL TOV" on this special accomplishment!

Rabbi Bearman's Favorite Jewish Music!
Rabbi Bearman has started a playlist on Spotify with some of her favorite Jewish music (including Josh Nelson Project, Dan Nichols & Eighteen, and others).
 Give it a listen! She'd love to hear about Jewish artists and songs that you love!
Share Your Simcha - Sponsor a Preneg, Oneg or Flowers!
A wonderful way of celebrating special simchas, such as birthdays, anniversaries, graduations, the birth of a child or grandchild, is sharing your nachas with the entire congregation by sponsoring the Shabbat Oneg, Preneg or Flowers for the Friday of your special week. No special occasion? You can still sponsor a Shabbat! We will arrange for the flowers, food and set-up, you just make a minimum donation of $125 for an Oneg, $180 for a Preneg or $250 for the flowers. Sponsor a Shabbat
