For those who can already read Hebrew (decode), this is your chance to focus on learning Hebrew vocabulary and comprehension, primarily based on prayers found in the siddur. Learn with Cynthia Freedman starting on March 7! The class will be held at 9:30 am Sundays.
The fee is on a sliding scale: $50-180 for the entire course. Cost should not be a barrier. Payment arrangements can be made; contact Rabbi Tamar if a scholarship is needed. Questions? Contact Rabbi Tamar!

Shabbat Morning Classes
We put together “Kiddush Kits” to help it feel a little more like Shabbat. The kits can be used on their own, or in conjunction with our online kiddush! If you can’t pick one up but would like one, let us know on the sign-up form.
If you would like to sponsor a future week’s kiddush kits, the cost is $400; go to Beth-Jacob.org/donate and choose “I would like to sponsor a kiddush” under “Choose a Fund”.
If you would like a kit, you must sign up at Beth-Jacob.org/KiddushKit by WEDNESDAY of that week; Kits can be picked up on Friday at Beth Jacob between 2-4 pm.

Check out our archive of Divrei Torah. These are available for those who missed them the first time, or who want to revisit them.
Many congregants have medical equipment in their homes that they needed temporarily, but no longer need. Many items are only gathering cobwebs (crutches, shower chairs, wheel chairs or “travel” chairs, etc.). Most of us would love for them to be used and are willing to lend them out.
Beth Jacob has set up a way to share your equipment or borrow what you need; go to Beth-Jacob.org/MedEquip. Add your name and item to the list, or, if you need an item, contact the person who has it. Refuah Shleimah!
Beth Jacob Congregation teens went to DC along with other Twin City Jewish Teens for the “March for our Lives”, and we printed these shirts and sweatshirts! Proceeds help to support the cause (eliminating gun violence). Shirts are $10 each; sweatshirts $25. Want one?
