Due to the COVID -19 restrictions, many of our Beth Chaim events have been held virtually, but most events are now held in person.  Events at Beth Chaim adhere to all Contra Costa County COVID-19 protocol regulations.

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.
