Count Your Blessings - Annual Fundraiser

While we can't be together in person for Beth Israel's Annual Fundraiser this year, we can stay home and stay safe while we count our blessings. In order to raise the funds we rely on to keep our Congregation going, we ask that you give freely from your heart according to the blessings you've received. Click here to Count Your Blessings!

Justice, Justice, You Shall Pursue

You are not obligated to complete the work, but neither are you free to desist from it.”
Pirkei Avot 2:21

Now, more than ever, we are obligated to ensure that the lives and welfare of all of our brothers and sisters are safeguarded; specifically, we must actively condemn and eliminate brutality and unjust treatment against all people of color.

In response to this, the Social Action Committee (SAC), Rav Nadav and Amanda Glucklich, BIC’s Engagement and Programs Director, will be working to help us deepen our understanding of the issues and develop initiatives to advance communities of color in Washtenaw County and beyond.
