10th Anniversary Celebration

Featuring Dinner, Raffle and a Live Auction!

Where were you on August 13, 2009?

Many of us were here in our very own building, to vote on the merger between Temple Beth Sholom (TBS) and Congregation B'nai Israel (CBI)! On that auspicious day, both congregations voted unanimously to become Beth Sholom B'nai Israel.  The Certificate of Merger was signed by President Ira Fink and President Gayle A. Block after months of meetings to plan the "marriage" of the two shuls.  On the evening of August 13-the 24th of Av, we joined together to celebrate the beginning of a beautiful friendship and a new family. 

While the "wedding" did not take place until September, when the sifrey Torah from CBI were carried in procession to BSBI, the anniversary of our union will be marked this year on Sunday, August 25th (the 24th of Av in this year's calendar).  We'll celebrate beginning at 5:30 pm, with a silent auction, dinner, music, reminiscences, and photos of our family journey.

RSVP forms were included in the June/July bulletin as well as online. 

Check back here often for updates.

We can't wait to celebrate!
