 Guess Who’s Coming to Shabbas?

This program partners congregants with one another for Shabbat dinner in their own homes.  The program, which began last year in a suburban congregation outside of Philadelphia, has two goals:

1.  Strengthen the synagogue community
2.  Help Families build meaningful memories

Read more about the program in the United Synagogue’s CJ magazine.

Our hope is to grow the program exponentially, with invited guests then serving as hosts in subsequent months, leading to 100% inclusion of our member by that end of the year.  Temple Sinai in Dresher, PA, where the program started, reached 82%. Think we can beat it? Let’s try?

Don’t be shy.  Let us know if you can host! We want our Beth El members to get to know one another outside the walls of the synagogue.

Dates for the program

To sign up to be a host or get more information, email Mike Rosenberg or call the Beth El office, (412) 561-1168.

We want to with each of you a “Shabbat Shalom” in person!

Plastic Bag Recycling

Due to the situation we all find ourselves in because of COVID-19, there have been unintended impacts to the environment. Some are positive, such as improved air quality due to far less air pollution. Some are more negative, such as increased single-use plastic consumption, since bringing reusable grocery or produce bags is no longer allowed…

A free “treat” from Subaru and Terracycle

My newest opportunity to redefine and reduce waste comes courtesy of Subaru and TerraCycle. Subaru was the first manufacturing facility in the United States (Indiana) to reach zero-landfill status. This occurred in 2004, and ever since Subaru has not sent any waste to landfills. So it was only natural that Subaru and TerraCycle formed a…
