Conservative synagogues announce “Come Together” series

by | Jul 13, 2023 | What’s Happening

Sundays, August 6, October 15, and December 10, 2 – 4 pm 

Collaborate?  Cooperate?  Create?  Any word will work to describe the upcoming “Come Together” series.  Tidewater’s four Conservative/Masorti synagogues, all members of the United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism (USCJ), are planning a four-part series to “Come Together” to celebrate and learn.  Events are spaced approximately two months apart.

Kehillat Bet Hamidrash/Kempsville Conservative Synagogue will host the first program, “Feel the Love” in honor of Tu B’av, the holiday of love, on August 6.  The event will include a food drive for the JFS Food Pantry and activities that celebrate love and caring for each other.

Temple Israel will host the second program, “The Sound of Israel,” on October 15.  This event is in conjunction with the 50th anniversary of the Yom Kippur War and will be a musical review of the popular music of Israel over time.

Temple Emanuel is working on plans for “Light Up Your Life” in celebration of Hanukkah, on December 10.

Congregation Beth El will host their program in early 2024.  More news to come as plans unfold.

Contact any of the host congregations for additional information.
