Message from Bnot
We would like to take this opportunity to introduce Bnot, the sisterhood of Congregation Bnai Yeshurun, and to tell you a little bit about the programming and services that we coordinate. Our goal is to provide the Bnai Yeshurun community with a variety of events (unique and recurring) that help bring the members of our community together, as well as to provide communal services for various events within the life cycle. Our board members meet monthly to discuss events, coordinate programs, and plan forthcoming ones. The success of our programs depends on the support of you, our community. We rely on the volunteers who help in various capacities and encourage you to see if there is a way you would like to contribute to some of these great programs. We especially hope you will contribute your own new ideas to Bnot. Please email us at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it anytime. We look forward to hearing from you and working with you in the future!
