Friend of the Community Award

The Social Action Committee of Congregation Beth Israel was proud to present our annual FRIEND OF THE COMMUNITY award at Shabbat services on April 12, 2019 at 7:30.  This year’s recipient was the LEAGUE OF WOMEN VOTERS (LWV) of Central Delaware County, nominated by Reisa Mukamal.  The award recognizes local individuals or groups of any faith who support or embody the concept of Tikkun Olam, or “Healing the World.” 

Uplifted and excited about the future

by Rabbi Nathan Martin - January 2019

I still can feel the joyful energy as I joined a chain of a hundred other smiling dancers while we snaked our way through the aisles of the Double Tree hotel conference room and belted out Lekha Dodi along with the 500+ Reconstructionist davveners for the Friday night service. This is one image I will hold onto from the Reconstructing Judaism convention - an image that helps me to remember that we are indeed part of a larger movement of joyful, creative, soulful Jews and allies seeking ways to infuse Jewish meaning into our lives.
