UPDATE: This Friday’s summer shul has been cancelled due to Tropical Storm Barry. 

Original post:

This Friday Evening, July 12th, will be our first “Summer Shul” with our sister congregation, Bnai Israel, as we join together for two festive, community Shabbat Services this summer.

We will host this first one at Beth Shalom and Rabbi Goldson will deliver the Dvar Torah. The evenings will begin at 6 p.m. with musical Kabbalat Shabbat Services, followed by a potluck dinner. Our synagogue will provide paper goods, drinks, salad, & dessert. We ask all others to bring a dairy or parve entree or side dish to share.

On August 9th, Bnai Israel will host and Rabbi Natan will deliver the D’var Torah. That will be followed by another potluck dinner. Please mark your calendars now as we focus on the importance of Jewish unity and solidarity here in Baton Rouge.
