On Friday, May 25th, over one hundred Beth El members, many of whom had observed their B’nai Mitzvah or Confirmation ceremonies at Beth El, joined together for a celebratory weekend. The night began with cocktails and hors d’oeuvres on the patio, followed by Kabbalat Shabbat services and dinner. Over 30 people participated in services Friday and Saturday.
A special exhibit is now on display through June 3 in the Rissman Kol Ami Collection gallery showcasing Bar and Bat Mitzvah celebrations at Beth El over the past 70 years. We invite everyone to stop by and take a look at the photos, albums, invitations, and other memorabilia, as well as ritual items from the Collection which have been donated in honor of these milestones in our congregants’ lives. This exhibit is a wonderful tribute to the history of Beth El, its members, and clergy.
