Shabbat Shuvah Service
Followed by a Memorial Plaque Dedication
Friday, October 7, 6:15 PM, Sanctuary
The Shabbat between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur is called Shabbat Shuvah, Shabbat of Return because its special haftarah reading begins with the words Shuvah Yisrael "Return O Israel", from the prophecy of Hoshea.
A Taste of Small Groups With Meaning
A simple yet radical idea:
Yom Kippur Afternoon Study Session, Tuesday, October 11, 1:00 to 2:30 PM, Jubilee Christian Center
To bring our members together to know and be known, learn and laugh, rest and rejuvenate, deepen connections with one another and Beth Am, and to experience the rhythms of Jewish life.
The Beth Am community mourns the passing of Shimon Peres, an exceptional statesman and a visionary leader. May his memory be a blessing and an inspiration.
The High Holy Day season leads us through a process of reflection, atonement, reconciliation and celebration. Rosh Hashanah begins Sunday evening, October 2. Yom Kippur begins Tuesday evening October 11. Visit our High Holy Days 5777 page to learn more about Beth Am services and events, how to purchase tickets and prayerbooks, and more! (NEW LOCATION for Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur services: Jubilee, located at 105 Nortech Parkway, San Jose, CA, approximately 25 minutes by car from Beth Am.)
