Welcome to B'nai Sholom

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

We are a place that Reform Jews and their families — from all backgrounds — can truly call “home.”

A warm, welcoming community in an active Reform synagogue, we provide opportunities for spiritual growth, continuous learning, social action and fun. Our programs deepen and broaden the engagement of both current and prospective members in Jewish life and service.

B’nai Sholom welcomes newcomers to our congregation, including people in interfaith marriages and of all races, abilities, sexual orientations and gender identities.

Currently, we are dealing with a dynamic and challenging situation as the coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to spread worldwide.  B’nai Sholom has moved to a multi-access platform, offering services  both in-person and virtually while learning remains online.

We invite you to join in our worship and study. Friday evening services start at 7:00 p.m. Tot Shabbat services are at 5:30 p.m. the second Friday of each month.

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

We look forward to welcoming you – online and in-person!

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

Weaving Together Formal and Lived Jewish Education

Weaving Together Formal and Lived Jewish Education jemerman August 16, 2022

I'm a self-proclaimed book worm. Since I could read, my default setting has been to research anything new at the library before implementing it. However, adulthood has taught me that some of the best lessons are learned after acting and truly living, which is why Rabbi Yanklowitz's perspective so resonates with me. Even so, I always start new adventures by studying.

Why Pray?

Why Pray? jemerman August 11, 2022

The reality is, one never knows whether someone else is suffering from an acute illness. A broken leg is obvious; a broken spirit, not so much. Many of us contend with invisible illnesses, whether physical, such as Multiple Sclerosis or chronic migraines; or mental, like anxiety or schizophrenia.

Lifelong learning, however, can be easier said than done. For many, as they enter adulthood, with its competing demands and obligations, setting aside time for learning – and especially for Jewish learning – can be challenging indeed.

One of the Greatest Love Stories of My Life

On this Tu B’Av, may we all seek out those people who are on our team through despair and delight, who can forgive and seek forgiveness, who see us for who we truly are and support us on the journey to becoming whoever we will someday be. And if your Valentine’s Day candy stash has run out, send those you love a note of sweetness and gratitude instead. Happy Tu B’Av!
