This week we read Parashat Emor 5784 / פָּרָשַׁת אֱמוֹר: Leviticus 21:1-24:23

Emor (“Say”) opens with laws regulating priestly behavior. It also describes the Biblical holidays that would evolve into Passover, Shavuot, Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur, and Sukkot, and ends with a story about a blasphemer and his punishment.

Barbara will deliver the Dvar Torah.


President's Message

At the quarterly board meeting of the BJC, the Board decided to have a potluck seder next year. Given how nicely our Shabbat Passover evening, went we feel that we can have a meaningful seder supported by our members’ contributions of food and spirit. We also decided to have a program with Four Seasons, a community non-profit that deals with end-of-life issues. This will be on a weekday in the coming month. Finally, our VP, Jerome Mandel, was appointed chair of the Nominating Committee. The new slate will be offered at the next board meeting. All offices except President and Vice president are up for election. If you would like a leadership role, we would very much like to hear from you. Please write Jerry at

Weekly Shabbat Service

It is good to enter into the spirit of the Sabbath, a time in which our personal concerns drop away for a few hours and we get a sense of the larger meaning of life and fellowship.

Our services last about an hour.  They include interactive songs and readings, usually supplemented by a lively discussion on important subjects.  Often we invite significant and challenging speakers from within and outside our community.
