Israel

Each month we will have a program that relates to Israel. We at Beth El are blessed to have so many members who have gone or are going to Israel on a summer program and are able to share with us, knowledge and experience to be able to provide fun and interesting programming for the Chapter! Programs range from Culture to Political Discussion to ways to getting to Israel.


Social Action/Tikkun Olam

This year at our Youth Outreach Retreat, the chapter members in attendance decided on a world issue that they wanted to learn about more in depth and be able to contribute more in helping the cause.

This year, BERUSY will be focusing on the problem of Hunger and Homelessness and each program will be dedicated to either learning more about the issue or going out and contributing to the cause. If you interested in being a part of this initiative,

September 26th: Introduction to Social Action: Learning about Hunger with Mike Menner from St. Stephens
October 24th: Social Action Part 2
November 14th: Social Action Part 3
December 5th: Social Action Part 4

Please join us on any of these days for our Social Action Nights. Please also join us on Monday, October 2nd from 3:00PM-5:00PM to help with our annual food packing at the St Louis Park Emergency Program.


Learning about Judaism:

One of the unique things that BERUSY has to offer is it’s connection to Judiasm and all of the rituals that come with it. This year, once a month there will be a program that surrounds particular holidays and other rituals occuring that month.

We also have a special Friday Night Service and Dinner that happens 2-3 times per year called Friday Night Lights. The next one is fast approaching and will be on Friday Night, November 3rd at 6:30PM-8:30PM. Sign Up Today: https://bethelsynagogue.nirsham.com/form/friday-night-lights-2017
