Games On!

Spring is in full-swing at Congregation Brith Achim!

The traditional offerings are running, on Zoom and in-person (health circumstances permitting), as well as a few special events from April and May. Our weekly events include:

  • Torah study: Thursday nights, 7:30 p,m.
  • Adult services: Friday nights, 7:30 p.m.; 1st and 3rd Saturday mornings, 10:30 a.m., and Children’s Services (for ages 5-10): concurrent with adult Saturday services

Highlighted Events

April included our elegant Second Night Passover Seder with live music by Lynn Lapidas.  As our largest yearly event, a great time was had by everyone as we “broke bread” (actually matzah) in a communal reading of the Hagaddah with entertainment over the dinner.

May’s featured event is Game Day on the 22nd.  Many tables will be set up with wide-ranging games, including:

  • classic games (such as dominoes and checkers),
  • children’s classics (with Monopoly, Chutes and Ladders),
  • Jewish classics (e.g., Mahjong, bridge) and modern “Eurogames”                       (e.g., Settler of Catan, Carcassonne).

Even video games, such as Destiny, will be present using the Google Stadia made available by the Children’s Awesome Service Experience.

Light refreshments will be served. We expect a great time to be had by all!
