Biking in Tel Aviv- Yaffo. We arrive at the casbah, an artist colony where the Ilana Goor Museum and lot's of galleries are located. Sonja stands by a suspended metal seed from which grows an orange tree. Two interpretations: 1) the current generation is too disconnected from its roots; 2) we carry our roots within us.
Thank you everyone for your wonderful birthday wishes and emoji!!

[10/22/21]   Monday's Dining for Dollars dinner event at the Silver Diner has been postponed. Please stay tuned for a new date.

We were all looking forward to a meal and to see each other out of the patio of the Silver Diner. Their patio has been under construction. While we were promised the patio would be ready for this Monday, as it can go with construction projects, the patio is not complete yet and they are not offering outside seating.

In keeping with BCRC's Covid-19 protocol regarding indoor events and masking, we will be looking toward a new date for this event when folks can gather outdoors for a meal.

Call for Purim Spiel Actors/Line Readers! No acting experience needed!

Purim Shabbat is Friday, February 26th and BCRC's (Virtual) Dr. Seuss Purim Spiel is HAPPENING! Plans are underway - Volunteers are needed! Please let us know that you can participate! :)

Details below in this letter from BCRC's Worship VP, Julia Schneider:

***

Hello BCRC families!

As Purim approaches, we continue the tradition of putting on a Purim Spiel. Given the ongoing Covid restrictions, we are trying something new this year.

We are producing a video starring YOU that will be shown during the Friday, February 26th Purim Shabbat Service.

This is intended to be funny and showcase our families - no acting experience required; just a desire to have fun, read a few verses and dress up!

We are looking for 7 households to read lines from an existing script, in costume, using your smartphone or tablet* to film a 2-3 minute video (additional direction will be communicated to volunteers). Our intent is to make this a kid-friendly play, welcoming participation from all age groups.

My son Zachary Schneider (5th grade) will serve as Director and will be leading the editorial process. If your family or your children are willing to participate, please email me at [email protected] by Jan 29 and we will set up a planning call for the first week of February.

Thank you!
