Racial Justice Resources

Congregation Beth Chaim is committed to becoming an explicitly antiracist organization, treating every day as an opportunity to live our values on racial justice through reflection, education, and action. 

Beth Chaim has convened a Racial Justice Task Force to coordinate its efforts to be an antiracist institution and foster deeper understanding around issues of race and racial equity. If you would like to join this group of congregants in working to promote racial justice, contact Rabbi Blum at for more details.

The festival of Shavuot celebrates the giving of the Torah at Mount Sinai.  Many Jews prepare and eat dairy foods – often cheesecake or blintzes – on Shavuot as a reminder of the sweetness of Torah, and also as a reminder that the Torah calls the land of Israel a land “flowing with milk and honey” (Exodus 3:8). Often families gather together on the holiday to enjoy a meal that features such dishes.  Click here for Shavuot recipes.
