Beth Jacob Book Swap

Please join the first-ever Beth Jacob Book Swap, Sunday, September 10, 10 am - 12:00 pm at Beth Jacob in the small sanctuary. This casual, drop-in gathering is for all Beth Jacob members to talk books, share books, or swap books. 

Bring a book (or two or three) you'd like to trade or donate and pick up a few new ones for your reading pleasure. All types of books are welcome. There will be a substantial collection of books at this event (courtesy of Mrs. Dalloway's in Berkeley) so if you don't have a book to swap, don't worry! Come anyway.

There will be food, of course. 

Meet our Banot Sherut: Reut, Racheli, and Tamar

We are so pleased to welcome three Banot Sherut to the Gan Mah Tov and Beth Jacob communities: Reut, Racheli, and Tamar!

In addition to working with Gan teachers to enhance the level of Jewish and Hebrew learning at Gan Mah Tov, they will be working with Rav Shua to bring excitement to our youth programming across Shabbat and Chagim.

Please join us this Shabbat to get to know the Banot, and help us make our Banot feel welcome by inviting them to your home for meals and outings, especially for Shabbat and Chag. More info about them will be in the Beat and separate emails.
