During the evening of September 13, 2022, Bet Am Shalom hosted The “Return” of Elul: White Plains Synagogues’ Evening of Study in Preparation for the New Year 5783. What made this evening unique was the opportunity to mix with congregants of, and study with rabbis of, various movements. Present were our own Rabbi Les Bronstein (Reconstructionist), Rabbi Annie Tucker of Temple Israel Center (Conservative), Rabbi Shira Milgrom of Congregation Kol Ami (Reform), and Rabbi Chaim Marder and Rabbanit Atara Lindenbaum of Hebrew Institute of White Plains (Orthodox). Attendees listened to an introduction and shofar blowing by Rabbi Bronstein, and then were able to attend two consecutive study sessions of their choice. Goals of the evening were to study with rabbis from neighbor synagogues, meet people from the local Jewish community, and to prepare our minds and hearts for the Days of Awe.
