Welcome to B'nai Sholom

We Are Very Glad To Welcome You To B’nai Sholom

A place Reform Jews and their families — of
whatever backgrounds — can truly call “home.”

We are all dealing with a dynamic and challenging situation as the coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to spread worldwide. Like most other synagogues, B’nai Sholom has moved to a virtual platform for services and learning. Our current schedule is below.

Please join in our worship and our studying. On the first two Fridays of every month, our services start at 6:13 PM; on the remaining Fridays, join us at 7:30 PM.

Call us at 518-482-5283 or email office@bnaisholom.albany.ny.us and we will send you information in a confirming email.

We look forward to welcoming you – online now, in-person in the very near future.

–Rabbi Danielle Weisbrot and the officers, trustees and members of B’nai Sholom

Choosing Hope in Times of Trial

Choosing Hope in Times of Trial jemerman December 6, 2021

From Covid and climate change to the erosion of democratic norms and the decline of a shared sense of truth (and the list could go on), two things are clear. First, are we living in an age that tests our ability to sustain hope. Second, if despair dominates hope, we will be unable to meet the challenges that beset us.

Reflections on the Significance of December 7 on American Jewry jemerman November 29, 2021

December 7 marks the 80th anniversary of the surprise military strike by the Imperial Japanese Navy Air Service on the US naval base at Pearl Harbor in Honolulu. The attack led to America's formal entry into World War II. What ensued would have a profound impact on Jews everywhere, including the American Jewish community.

For Some of Us the Holidays Are Just…Hard

For Some of Us the Holidays Are Just…Hard jemerman November 18, 2021

As we head into the holiday season, I am acutely aware of how much different this year is going to be than previous ones. I will be celebrating without my mom for the first time. My mother died in January 2021, and I'm still dealing with the unexpected waves of grief that wash over me, sometimes out of nowhere. As I head into this first winter holiday season without her, I'm not quite sure I know what to expect, other than everything is going to be very different.
