B’yachad, which means “together,” is the social heart of Temple Emeth. We plan, execute, and support activities and events that are of interest to all Temple members. Historically, B’yachad has been a combined Brotherhood and Sisterhood designed to “help achieve the religious, charitable, social, and educational goals of Temple Emeth.”

B’YACHAD Activities Include:

Social Events: We run various social events to build our congregational community, including: Family Outings; Minor League Baseball Games; Comedy Night; Artist-in-Residence; Middle Eastern Cooking; Opera events; Paint Night; Klezmer Concerts; Israeli Dancing and more! Of course, each event includes a meal/nosh and time for kibitzing and socializing.

Sunday Morning Breakfast Meetings: We have B’yachad Breakfasts, where our Temple community gets together for an informative presentation and lively discussion, while enjoying a bagel breakfast. Recent speakers/topics have included: Rabbi Rebecca Sirbu discussing Hadassah; Youth Activism and Gun Violence Prevention; Sandi Klein's Conversations with Creative Women; The Borscht Belt; Current Environmental Issues, Chani Getter discussing The Process of Change, Temple Emeth at 70; AIPAC; State Senator Loretta Weinberg and numerous authors discussing their books.

While our building is closed, all B'yachad Breakfasts will be held on Zoom. Please BYO bagels!
