Celebrations and Events

Pumpkins and popcorn and gourds, oh my!

Like the October leaves, Congregation Beth Ahabah is growing more colorful and festive this month! Families will be taking part in beautifying the congregation’s courtyard Sukkah with harvest-inspired decorations, and Religious School students will be learning about the history of the festival, and how modern-day Sukkot celebrations remind us of those in ancient times.

Join us as we shake the lulav and etrog at our Erev Sukkot service at 6:15 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 9th!

Come sing, dance, and celebrate the Torah with us beginning at 6:15 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 16! My Son the Doctor, a local klezmer/Roma band, will add their joyful flair to the Simchat Torah service.

Listen as the end of the Torah is read, followed immediately by the beginning—the completion of one Torah cycle and the start of a new one.

Tickets will soon be available for Beth Ahabah’s Choir Cabaret Concert on Saturday, Nov. 12! Join Cantor Beck-Berman and Music Director Natan Berenshteyn as they host an evening of music featuring singers from the Beth Ahabah Choir and music from the Golden Age of Broadway. The evening will begin with schmoozing and noshing at 6:30 p.m. followed by the concert at 7 p.m. Watch for more information coming soon!
