Confirmation Class of 1949: 70 Years of Blessing

May 3 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm


Seventy years ago, the Confirmation Class of 1949, a group of young men and women adorned in white robes, ascended the bimah to be blessed at Temple Beth Israel on Holman Street. Today, they look back with fondness for enduring friendships and memories that never grow old. On Friday, May 3, 2019, members of the Confirmation Class of 1949, will be called to the bimah for a blessing, again. All are welcome to be present and witness this special time in their life and ours. Please celebrate their blessing with us in the Sanctuary at 6:30pm.

The Hurricane Harvey Flood Fund

Hurricane Harvey left Houston and surrounding areas in a shambles, but the great people of Houston are banding together to help and heal. Your help is welcome and needed. You may send Gift Cards (Kroger, Target, HEB, Lowe’s, or Visa/Mastercard, etc.) to Congregation Beth Israel. They will be immediately distributed to area neighbors to assist in replacing essential items and children’s school supplies.

You may also Donate directly to Congregation Beth Israel by clicking here. All funds will go directly to aid those who need immediate help. These funds will NOT be held to be allocated later. On behalf of our clergy (Rabbi David Lyon, Rabbi Adrienne Scott, Rabbi Joshua Herman, Rabbi Chase Foster, and Cantor Trompeter), David Scott, Executive Director, and Bruce Levy, Temple President, we are very grateful for your kindness, generosity, and help.

Hurt has no shame and no label; we just need to heal one another.

Rabbi David Lyon
