New Fall Schedule For Temple Beth-El
With Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur just around the corner, Temple Beth-El of Rockaway Park will begin their Fall programs very shortly.
Their very successful Adult Film Festival program has arranged for several films to be shown over the course of the next several months.
Included with be a film about how the Israeli Philharmonic came to be. After starting out with a few musicians saved from Hitler’s gas chambers, today it is one of the most renowned orchestras in the world.
A full schedule of films will be announced shortly. There is no cost to attend any of the films that will be shown in the Temple Social Hall.
In other programs, Rabbi Allan Blaine will once again lead Monday morning adult classes to discuss relevant and interesting topics from “The Observant Life,” among which are “Holy Days and Holidays,” and how to live in the modern world yet remember our background to guide us as we go forward. Another topic will be: “The Jewish Calendar” and why it’s different than our regular yearly calendar. Each topic in “The Observant Life” is interesting and thought provoking.
For dates and times for these programs and others, call Temple Beth-El at 718-634-8100.
The Temple Social Hall was heavily damaged during Super-Storm Sandy and is now up and running with new construction, a new kitchen, new offices and the addition of an overhead projection screen to view all of the films.
Junior Congregation is held in the Social Hall on Saturday mornings at 8:45 a.m. providing an opportunity for children to become involved in learning and being part of the Congregation in time for their Bar and Bat Mitzvahs.
Rabbi Blaine is looking forward to greeting everyone during the High Holidays. If you are interested in joining Temple Beth-El in time for the High Holidays, please call the office at the number above to arrange for membership and High Holiday tickets.
