Something very special happens when we learn together as a community. Whether we are studying the portion of the week, learning about the Dead Sea Scrolls, the poetry of Yehuda Amichai or a host of other subjects, the camaraderie, the intellectual stimulation, the humor, all combine with the spirit of Shabbat to make the learning experience at Congregation Beth Hatikvah unique. See what's in store this month...
Shabbat is welcomed all year long at CBH. Each Friday evening we welcome Shabbat as a community in a variety of ways. Check the CBH calendar on the homepage for weekly service types and times.
All of our Shabbat services are casual - in atmosphere and dress. Everyone of all ages is welcome to attend. More...
So, the definition of a “program” is “a planned series of future events, items, or performances”. That loose definition is a perfect description of CBH programs. Here at CBH, we strive to enliven our spirituality by offering programs that appeal to a range of audiences. CBHers considerAt CBH, we feel that we are a microcosm of the global Jewish community and as such try to offer programs that will enlighten, entertain and provoke thoughtful discussion. Some past programs include Jewish Poetry reading by Morristown Poet Gail Fishman Gerwin, skype visit from Jerusalem with renowned author Anne Marie O’Connor, Community Movie Night and a presentation on Human Trafficking led by CBHer Ava Schlesinger. We have many more programs planned for including a performance of Jewish Gospel music by the choir at Temple Bethel from Philadelphia, a Jewish scavenger hunt for families held in and around the Green in Morristown, a presentation by Rabbi Jon Cutler on the Jews of Africa and much more. Keep your eye on the CBH calendar to attend the next CBH Program.
From the Camp JRF web site: "Our campers come from half of our JRF congregations and from nearly 40 other communities around the globe. As an inclusive community, we welcome children from a wide variety of family structures, religious practices, and socio-economic backgrounds. At the center of our Reconstructionist philosophy is a deep commitment to building a community in which all are welcome to grow and thrive."
