B'yachad

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, have included: Family Outings; Comedy Night; Artist-in-Residence; 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: Temple Emeth at 70; AIPAC, First Friends of NJ (Immigration); Jewish Newark; NJ State Senator Loretta Weinberg; Esther Sandrof; Andrew Silow-Carroll; Rabbi Rebecca Sirbu; Dr. Tamara Freeman; Rabbi Steven Sirbu; and numerous authors discussing their books.

Our Sunday Breakfast programs for the 2018-19 season are:

  • October 14, 2018—Marty Schneit will present on the Borscht Belt in the Catskills
  • November 18, 2018—Temple Emeth Member Sandi Klein will discuss her podcast—Conversations With Creative Women
  • January 20, 2019—Chani Getter will present "The Process of Change: Living Your Authentic Life!" This program is co-sponsored with the Viewpoints Committee

Fundraising and Donations: Contributions have been used to help the Religious School, provide gifts to the Confirmation Class and B’nai Mitzvot, Youth Scholarships, RAC Trip, Sukkah building and decorations, and to other Temple and community events.

We welcome your ideas, comments and thoughts, especially suggestions for future Breakfast Speakers and events. Thank you for your continued support.
