Important Mikvah event THIS SUNDAY (Nov 21) — for both MEN and WOMEN


SUNDAY • NOVEMBER 21 • 11 am to 1 pm

Very few B'nai Avraham men use the Mikvah and Mikvah events are typically open only to women. But the Mikvah is a VITAL COMMUNITY RESOURCE and as such ALL members of the community have a responsibility to support it.

For this Sunday's "Water of Life Campaign” — with its message, “Transform Fear into Faith” — men (as well as women!) are explicitly ENCOURAGED to attend.

The program will start with an address (via video) by elite Israeli marathoner and Haredi mother of five Beatie Deutsch. B'nai Avraham's Marcie Roth and Brooke Bryant will also deliver inspiring words.

At noon, there will be an OPTIONAL 5k Run/Walk (starting in front of the shul).

LUNCH will be served at 12:30.

Breakfast's back! Daven and dine at B'nai Avraham. Come for Shacharit Mon thru Fri at 7:45 (Sun at 8:45)

Daily Shacharit services are once again followed by a complimentary breakfast (a treat lost during the height of the pandemic)..

Shacharit begins at 7:45 am Monday through Friday and at 8:45 am on Sunday.

Before the pandemic, breakfast at B'nai Avraham was a lavish affair (often featuring a choice of scrambled eggs, shakshuka, waffles and bagels), as these pictures from a Summer Sunday in 2018, attest.

Weekday Maariv now at 8 pm

Maariv through the winter will be at 8 pm Monday through Thursday. (No weekday Mincha service in the winter.)

On Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, Mincha-Maariv will be at Friday's candle lighting time.
