BACK TO SCHOOL

Hebrew school teachers arrived bright and early to Beth Israel Congregation in Owings Mills to prepare for the upcoming school year. After the Aug. 27 orientation meeting, teachers had the opportunity to decorate their classrooms.

NEW BEGINNINGS

Baltimoreans trickled through the doors of Moishe House to celebrate the nonprofit’s first Shabbat in Canton on Aug. 18. The organization moved from its Federal Hill-based house in late July.  

GILEAD HOUSE

In an effort to help those in need, Chizuk Amuno congregants banded together to buy staple items for those residing at the Gilead House of Baltimore. Margi Hoffman, left, and Jennie Rothschild helped deliver the first batch of items, including a coffeemaker, fan and crockpot, on Friday, Aug. 4.
