WAYLAND/SUDBURY: Congregation B’nai Torah of Sudbury warmly invites the community to Shabbat on the Beach services and Open Houses this summer. This service led by Congregation B’nai Torah member Jeff Levine. Prospective members are welcome to join 30 minutes prior to each beach service to learn more about Congregation B’nai Torah. Sand toys, bubbles, and sidewalk chalk await families with young children who would like to meet members of our temple and learn more about our community. R.S.V.P. to membership@bnaitorah.com if you would like to attend. Bring your beach chairs (or blanket) and a picnic dinner, and enjoy the sunset while you share the beauty of Shabbat together as a community!

Also Friday, August 19, at 6:30pm (led by B’nai Torah’s Rabbi Lisa Eiduson with Rabbi Joshua Breindel of Beth El).
