IT’S TIME TO BE THE FOCUS OF ATTENTION IN YOUR LIFE
By being an adult oriented congregation, its all about you and others like you. The education programs are for adults. The social action programs are those where adults can participate to make a difference. The services are adult-themed without Bar or Bat Mitzvah orientation. Together, we share issues of aging parents, preparation for retirement, and downsizing — we have moved on from being our kids’ social directors and chauffeurs.
FEEL THE PEACE AND JOY OF SHABBAT
Come join us at Shabbat services to learn from the thought-provoking teachings of our rabbi, Seth Bernstein. Experience the joy of singing led by our cantor, Linda Baer. Feel a great sense of community as we join hands and sing the blessings at our Oneg Shabbats. Our members reach out to make guests and new members feel at home. We respect diversity and welcome couples, singles, and those in interfaith relationships into our family.
BROADEN YOUR JEWISH EDUCATION THROUGH RICH AND DIVERSE LEARNING OPPORTUNITIES
Do you want to learn more about the history of the liturgy or about humor in Jewish literature? Would you enjoy taking guided tours to places of Jewish significance? Are you ready for the interesting, inspiring ideas generated by our annual Gene Klein Scholar in Residence program? Bet Aviv provides a wealth of learning opportunities to satisfy your thirst for knowledge.
FULFILL YOUR DESIRE TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN THE WORLD THROUGH VOLUNTEERING
As an organization that thrives on volunteer efforts, we welcome your experience and knowledge in contributing to our congregation as well as through supporting existing community efforts like Adopt-a-Road, Grassroots and the Soup Kitchen in Baltimore. Or gather a group to support your favorite cause — at Bet Aviv there are sure to be others who will help. Whether you want to mentor a school child, beautify the environment, assist in providing food for the homeless and needy, or help out with administrative tasks, Bet Aviv has a place for you.
BASK IN THE WARMTH OF COMMUNITY AND MAKE NEW FRIENDS
Take advantage of our social events to make new friends and have fun. Both our Men’s Club and Sisterhood offer a full range of programs and projects that encourage social interaction. Join us for trips to the theater, anniversary celebrations, lively discussions, and our annual Passover seder — just a sample of exciting events open to Bet Aviv members.
