Warm the Night and Nourish the Soul

Welcome to Beit Ahavah’s community blog.  Our leadership, community members and Rabbi Riqi Kosovske (named as one of Massachusetts Jewish Ledger’s “movers and shakers” in 2014)  will use this forum to highlight upcoming events and to provide reflections and ideas about our synagogue, our community…and yes, even about the world!

To get started, we invite everyone to come in from the cold this Friday night and join us for an early kabbalat shabbat service and soup supper.   Here are some details:


Friday, January 16, 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Warm the Night and Nourish the Soul: Early Kabbalat Shabbat Service and Soup Supper

It’s cold outside, but very warm at Beit Ahavah! Join the community for a Friday night service followed by a soup supper. We’ll provide soups, bread, cheese and drinks. Lander-Grinspoon Academy is sponsoring dessert to celebrate their Chai (18) anniversary.

A note from LGA:  The Chai Year is our opportunity to celebrate our school’s success and to recognize the realities of sustaining the school going forward. The Jewish communities in the Valley have long supported LGA, its families, and its mission. This is the second of three Synagogue events; a small gesture to recognize the close bonds among us all in fostering Jewish education and community! Please join us to speak with trustees and other LGA and BA families – both past and present!  For more information about LGA, contact Karen Rehmus, Director of Special Events, Lander-Grinspoon Academy, krehmus@lgaschechter.org.
