Congregation B’nai Jacob Happenings for April 2023

Bread & Torah

Saturday Mornings 9:00am-9:45am

Meet in the B’nai Jacob Library (or join us on Zoom) to explore the weekly Torah portion and the way in which its story relates to our own.  Be prepared for a lively discussion over bagels and coffee.  No experience necessary.  Taught by Rabbi Rona Shapiro.

Shir Hadash

Saturday, May 6 at 9:00am

A songful, prayerful, soulful service led by Cantorial Intern, Kochava Munro, and Rabbi Shapiro. We use the power of our music and kavanah of our words and hearts to make God’s presence manifest.  

Prayerful Shabbat Morning Walk on the Blue Trail

Saturday, May 20 at 8:30am (weather permitting)

Join Rabbi Shapiro for a thoughtful, prayerful, meditative walk on the Blue Trail. Meet behind the church in Woodbridge Town Center. Wear comfortable walking shoes!

Shabbat Lunch & Learn Author Discussion

Saturday, May 6 after Kiddush at 1:00pm


The first-ever anthology from Lilith magazine, Frankly Feminist is a unique amalgam of fine writing and activism that comes right out of Jewish women’s lives today: transgressive loves, deepening connections, political turmoil, abortion, fear of loss, struggles with fertility, with body and soul, with finding community, and with decoding family life. Elizabeth Edelglass will lead us in a discussion of her story in the book along with several other stories.

Unless otherwise noted, all services, classes and events are in person at B’nai Jacob, located at 75 Rimmon Road, Woodbridge.
