Monthly Midrash Meet & Eat with David Scott, RJE

January 10 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm



Go beyond the basics of Judaism with David Scott, RJE! Join him in the Lewis President’s Room over lunch to focus on a particular topic, including the deeper understandings of Creation, family conflicts and resolution, and discussions of slavery and redemption. Using ancient sources, we will come to a modern understanding of these timeless themes. We will use selections from our early rabbinic writings, known as midrash, and also explore other biblical texts in addition to the Torah. If you’ve always wanted to learn more about Judaism but didn’t know where to start, then this class is for you! Lunch will be provided. For information and to RSVP, please contact Dani Gardner, (713) 771-6221 x630.

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
