B'nai Moshe News and Notes

Refugee Shabbat at B'nai Moshe, October 20 featuring guest speaker, Judge Avern Cohn

National Refugee Shabbat on October 20 is a moment for congregations, organizations and individuals around the country to creat a Shabbat experience dedicated to refugees. The parasha describes the beginning of teh experience of wandering in search of freedom for the Jewish people.  This makes it a particularly meaningful opportunity to deepen our understanding of today's global refugee crisis, connect with the Jewish movement for refugees, commit (or re-commit) to taking action, and either celebrate your community's achievements in working with refugees or launch new efforts. Services being at 9:00a.m..

Judge Avern Cohn is the keynote speaker and will speak at approximately 11:00 a.m.

 

Newly created Seymour and Sharlene Ungar Scholar-In-Residence Endowment Fund

Congregation B’nai Moshe announces the establishment of the Seymour and Sharlene Ungar Scholar-in-Residence Fund.

This endowment was created through a generous bequest by Sharlene and Seymour Ungar as well as gifts from their children and grandchildren to honor their memories. This Fund is a legacy to Sharlene and Seymour’s commitment to Jewish education, synagogue life and, especially, Congregation B’nai Moshe.

Over nearly 50 years Seymour served B’nai Moshe in a variety of roles, including Ritual Committee Chair and as a member of the Youth Commission, Catering and Membership Committees. Seymour also served as our minyan coordinator for many years.

Sharlene was the first woman to serve as President of B’nai Moshe and later served as Executive Director. She was a leader in the Conservative Movement including serving as President of both the Michigan Branch of the Women’s League for Conservative Judaism and Michigan Region of United Synagogue.

Perhaps more importantly Sharlene and Seymour imbued their family with a love of Judaism and a deep value for lifelong Jewish learning. The Fund enables B’nai Moshe to bring in distinguished speakers, authors and scholars on a biennial basis. We anticipate the inaugural Seymour and Sharlene Ungar Scholar-in-Residence weekend to take place during 2020.

We appreciate the continuing generosity of Seymour and Sharlene and this tribute to their everlasting love of B’nai Moshe and Jewish education.
