Shabbat Service and Second Bar Mitzvah

Saturday, October 27 at 10 AM

Join us as Rabbi Allen leads our Shabbat Morning Service. Share the simcha as Herb Siegel and his twin brother Marty celebrate their 83rd birthday. In Psalm 90, verse 10, David says "The length of our days is 70 years". As this is considered a normal lifespan, it has become a custom to celebrate a second Bar or Bat Mitzvah at our second 13th birthday.

The Kiddush is sponsored by Herb and his daughter Sandra Byrne in celebration of the occasion.

The Personal and Congregational Benefits of Contributions

If your visit to our website or to our Temple motivates you to support Congregation Beth Sholom, either as a member or a guest, you can easily do so by clicking the "Donate" button below. There will be an option on one of the screens to 'send a message to the seller'.  Use that option to tell us what the donation is for.  We support both the congregation needs of our members and others through our Temple's acts of Tzedakah.

There are many ways to honor, celebrate or remember a loved one or special event and help the Jewish community at the same time. A financial contribution allows Congregation Beth Sholom to strengthen its member services and serve the community. In-kind contributions can work in many ways. If you have any questions or would like to discuss a contribution in honor, celebration, or memory of any one or an event, please call Treasurer Dave Englander at 352-504-4402.

Sponsoring an Oneg brings special pleasure to our religious services. Call Pam Singer at 787-1999 to discuss an Oneg Shabbat.
