Celebrate, study and explore Jewish Women’s issues and history. Life experience is the only tool you’ll need.
Those who wish to eat something before services, should feel free to bring something for themselves. Please be aware of Temple Beth Abraham’s kashrut (kosher) policy. Since we do not allow both meat and dairy at the same event, we ask that you bring only DAIRY (contains milk) or PAREVE (neither dairy nor meat, e.g., vegetarian) items.
For those who want or want to provide a snack to share, that is welcome, but it should be pareve.
