    The Hineni program provides one-time or short-term services to congregants. To this end, a number of congregants have volunteered to provide rides, meals, and other similar assistance as needed and requested. For examples, rides to Temple for services, programs, and meetings as well as to appointments can be arranged. Meals will also be provided on a limited basis.
    All congregant requests will be maintained in the strictest of confidentiality. Any requests for assistance should be directed to the program coordinator, Ed Sore or to Rabbi Silverman @ 508-746-1575. Volunteers are always welcomed and needed.

    LIMUD TORAH / Torah Study Group

    We continue our weekly study of the Torah and also look at how the ancient rabbis revealed themselves in the stories they told to supplement the Biblical narratives. While knowledge of Hebrew can be helpful, we study our texts in English. Please feel free to join us any week or each and every week. Our study sessions are on most Mondays from 8:30 to 10:00 a.m., at the Synagogue. Please check the Weekly Update to confirm meeting dates.

    Also check the calendar for the Sisterhood Torah study which takes place twice a month at CBJ on Mondays at 11 am.
