What is your organization's mission?
At B’ShERT, our intention is to meet every person where they are in their spiritual journey, and to offer worship experiences that are inclusive for all. Our Friday evening Erev Shabbat service and Saturday morning Minyan Service are slightly more traditional, while our Saturday morning Religious School t’filah service includes our Religious School families and strives to be a positive worship experience for participants of all kinds, including neurodiverse children (or adults) who may have challenges sitting still in synagogue. We are committed to providing an inclusive and welcoming spiritual home regardless of where you may be on your Jewish journey. We enthusiastically welcome members of all Jewish traditions, families of multiple faith backgrounds, LBGTIQ+ members, differently abled members, and those who simply wish to learn and experience our warm and friendly community.
What activities do you offer?
Religious school, adult learning, Shabbat services, Holiday services, and more.
How would you describe your community?
B’ShERT is engaged in the Prospect Park South/Ditmas Park community, in Brooklyn, and in the worldwide Jewish community we share. In our immediate neighborhood we cooperate with CAMBA and other human service organizations to support their missions of help and healing. We participate in the Brownstone Brooklyn Congregations alliance and the Brooklyn Interfaith Coalition, co-sponsoring the annual Interfaith Thanksgiving and community observances of Yom HaShoah. We are a member congregation of the URJ and ARZA, and we welcome our young Shinshinim (year of service participants) as they spend a year abroad from Israel between high school and their national service.
