Due to the COVD-19 outbreak and restrictions, we are now live-streaming selected events.
You do not need to be a Facebook member or be logged into Facebook to see and hear the Shabbat service,
nor do you need to have a  account to participate in the Torah Study or many other events offered by Beth Chaim.
 
Thank you all for enthusiastically embracing this new technology and helping to create such a loving and supportive
virtual community within BCC.

SISTERHOOD SEASONAL HEALING CIRCLE

Thursday | 7:00 pm Online

Mid-March is the Vernal Equinox, one of only two moments in the year when the Sun
is exactly above the Equator (so day and night are of equal length). This is when
there is an important tilt in the earth that gives rise to the change in seasons. 
B Carpenter will lead us through a meaningful evening of music, prayer and reflection. 
This is a wonderful time to move into Spring with a renewed spirit.
