Happenings at Beth Ahabah


Autumn is here—and with it, a plethora of programming at Congregation Beth Ahabah!

Adult Education Classes:

Fall Session

Adult education classes begin on Monday, Oct. 9th beginning at 6:30 p.m. This session’s classes include “The Situation in Israel: Past Present, and Future” (virtual option available), “Hebrew Through Music” (virtual option available), and “Jewish Cooking with Chef Dan Scherotter: Fall Menu” (in-person only).

Beth Ahabah members may register for all classes; non-members may register for hybrid/virtual classes. For information and to register, visit bethahabah.org/beit-midrash.

Tot Shabbat

Tot Shabbat resumes Oct. 28th at 9 a.m. at Beth Ahabah!

Created just for kids 0-5 years old (and the people who drive them around), this monthly program introduces children to Shabbat through music and movement. It’s an opportunity to meet other families with young children! Everyone in the Richmond Jewish community is welcome.

Young Adult Shabbat Walk



At 2 p.m. on Oct. 28th, young adults (20s to 45-ish) are invited to a Shabbat Walk at Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens. Participants will get to know one another as we stroll through the paths, with readings, reflections, and discussions.

The Garden will remain open until 9 p.m., so you can choose to leave at the conclusion of the program—or stay to enjoy the grounds on your own.

Please contact Sarah Roper at

programs@bethahabah.org with questions/ registration information.

Choir Cabaret Showcase

Finally, mark your calendars for our upcoming Choir Cabaret Showcase to be held at 7 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 12th! A reception will precede the concert at 6:30 p.m.

This year, soloists from the Beth Ahabah Choir will perform songs by composers Burt Bacharach and Michel Legrand.

These two composers are famous for movie soundtrack tunes like Bacharach’s “Raindrops Keep Falllin’ On My Head” (from “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid”), the musical film “Yentl” composed by Legrand, and much more!
