From The Ritual Committee -

The changing of the seasons and the coming warmer temperatures present an opportunity to review protocols for maintaining sanctity in our sanctuary -

  • We request that water bottles for adults not be brought into the sanctuary. Our staff has been instructed to maintain a water station, cold water and cups, in the social hall accessible to worshippers as needed.
  • Modesty in attire is always encouraged. Men participating in any manner of leadership (baal tefilah, baal keriyah, aliyah) should tuck in shirt tails.
  • Timely arrival at services enhances the tefilah experience for everyone, including men and women wishing to recite Kaddish. Minimizing private conversations maximizes the shul prayer experience for everyone.

The Ritual Committee is ever ready to assist members in learning how to lead, how to chant, or simply how to keep up with the services. Please let Rabbi Adler know if you would like to study any aspect of prayer with a member of our Committee.

One year ago, the Board of Directors approved a Mission Statement and Strategic Directions that were developed over a period of six months by the Strategic Planning Committee under the guidance of an expert consultant. We are offering the opportunity for all BDWH members to give feedback and to ask questions as we reflect upon our progress at the one year mark. We appreciate your comments in order to help us to evaluate the process and the impact thus far. Please click on the following link to share your observations, questions, and comments:


If you would prefer to give your answers over the phone, rather than in an online form, please contact the Strategic Planning Committee at planning@bethdavidwh.org and a member of the committee will get back to you.

The War

As Israel navigates the war against Hamas, and we celebrate the release of hostages, let us not forget those Israelis who paid the ultimate price. Please CLICK HERE for brief biographies of brothers and sister that have been lost.

From the Beth David Inbox -

From Elisha and Anat Rosenzweig

"As you can imagine, things here in Israel are challenging, but B"H we are doing fine, and Gd willing we will get out of this soon, and stronger for it.

I wanted to share that I've started to record a "war diary" of the Israel-Hamas war that is taking place these days around us, tracking how things evolve from our perspective. The point is to give people - especially those who are not Israeli, but want to gain a sense of how things are here, "on the ground" - a sense of what it feels like, as well as what are the personal, political and strategic forces at work. I'm not a reporter or an expert in anything related to this war. Just an informed citizen of the State of Israel, who has lived in this tiny country in the Middle East most of his life and so has (hopefully) a broad context within which to help place these events. So far I've done two episodes. I'll be trying to do these in a semi-daily manner." Click here for Elisha's updates, and save the link.

Feel free to not only watch but also share with those you think would find this meaningful. 

Hope to see you soon, in quieter times, Elisha Rosenzweig and Family
