7:30 pm  Erev Shabbat Service, Shabbat Shira with our TBE Choir and our speaker will be Rebbitzen Penelope Kieffer!

Penelope will tell us stories about the remarkable events that happened at the Mikveh. This is not your Bubbe's Mikveh. From brides to babies to conversion at the age of 80+ to special birthdays, you will be surprised at the reasons we use the Mikveh nowadays.  The stories are deeply inspiring and affirmative!

On this special Shabbat we will honor the contributions of the Temple Beth Emet Choir. Choir Director Carol Roman will be conducting and Cantor Zev Brooks will be doing a special tribute.

Hope you have a wonderful Shabbat - hope to see you soon!


Shalom u’vrakha (Peace and Blessings),

 Mary Ann
