BZBI, where you worship

High Holy Days

    In the words of Senior Rabbi Abe Friedman, the High Holy Days provide us with the change to be a “gathering of people focused beyond themselves. People transcending the mess of the world as it is to insist on a vision of the world as it should be…and to look beyond our fears to find hope and inspiration to act.”

    The rabbi’s sermon, given during Rosh Hashanah 5780/2019 and found on our Shofar blog, talks about how “the future of Judaism depends on our establishing a Judaism of love over fear. If we want to bequeath a strong, vibrant Judaism to the generations that follow, we need to build a Judaism that brings people into community – at synagogue and in one another’s homes – not because we fear what might befall us from the outside but because we love so much what we find on the inside. And BZBI will be part of building that Judaism of love.”

    BZBI  is place that will inspire you to seek and challenge you to grow. It all starts with spending the New Year with us and organically joining a true sacred community in prayer, for Shabbat and daily minyanim; through acts of caring kindness and social justice; through adult education, Neziner Hebrew School, and Early Childhood communities.

    To give you a taste of BZBI at the holidays, you are welcome to listen to some samples of music from our 5782/3031 service.  If you want to view more from our services, the sermons, remembrances, and prayer from the past year can be found on our VirtualBZBI page.
