A Community Call for Faith and Unity: An Interfaith Gathering Against Antisemitism and Racism

Sunday, November 20 | 6:30 PM | In-Person and Virtual on Livecontrol

Given the recent and egregious antisemitic comments and actions by prominent people, the desecration of a Jewish cemetery in Waukegan, and the ongoing demonization of Jews and Black people in our society, we are coming together as a community in prayer and solidarity to stand up against bigotry and prejudice and reiterate our commitment to building a community where hate has no home and love and justice are our guiding principles.

Kabbalat Shabbat Services D'var Torah by Rabbi London: Chapter 2 of Hear All Along

In-Person and Virtual on Livecontrol

Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel taught: “Judaism is based on a minimum of revelation and a maximum of interpretation.” Rabbi London will give a D’var Torah on chapter 2 of Here All Along (The Process of Judaism: Questioning, Debating, and Interpreting) and explore how Judaism evolves to make it speak to our lives today. If you do not yet have your copy of the book and/or wish to join a book circle, check our website.

The Here All Along program is sponsored by the Judith F. Krug; David and Florence Fingeret; Solomon and Lillian Krug Fund of the Beth Emet Foundation

Masks are no longer required and are encouraged. At all Friday evening services, there will be a masks-required section for those that feel more comfortable at the east end of the Sanctuary. For more information see our updated COVID protocols

Ivy Young

November 19, 2022

Parents: Eric and Shaina Young

I’m Ivy Young. I am a 7th grader at Nichols Middle School. My favorite subject is math. I also love to dance and have been dancing for 9 years now. For my Gemilut Chasadim project, I hosted a Dance Marathon to raise money for the Cherry Preschool Scholarship Program. I received a scholarship there when I was in preschool and wanted to give back. I was also a Junior Counselor at Cherry Preschool over the summer. I am looking forward to my Kabbalat Mitzvah because I have been working very hard, and I want to show all the work and dedication I have put into preparing.
