Congregation Beth Sholom February schedule


Celebrate Tu B’Shevat and Shabbat with the synagogue that feels like family. Rabbi Karen Allen will begin the observance on Friday evening, Feb. 10 at 6:30 p.m. with a Tu B’Shevat Seder. This is a short seder celebrating the New Year of the Trees. The seder plate involves the fruits of the tree—nuts with shells and fruits with peels. Four shades of wine are also part of the ritual. The Shabbat service will follow at 7 pm.  An Oneg Shabbat will follow the service.

The Interfaith Lake County forum will join with the monthly Rabbi’s Roundtable of Congregation Beth Sholom on Thursday, Feb. 23 at 7 p.m. at the synagogue. The topic for the evening is The Golden Rule: A common theme of world religions. Clergy from Muslim and Christian houses of worship will join Rabbi Karen Allen in an interactive discussion about this thought provoking and universal subject. The public is invited to attend and participate in the conversation.

Saturday, Feb. 25: Shabbat Morning Service led by Rabbi Karen Allen, at 10 a.m. A Kiddush will follow the service.

The synagogue is located at 315 North 13th St. in Leesburg, with the entrance on Center Street. We collect food for the Leesburg Food Bank at all our activities.
