‘A Day at B’nai’ at B’nai Sholom

Rabbi Don Cashman, B’nai Sholom Reform Congregation’s spiritual leader since 1985, demonstrates the technique for blowing the shofar at the synagogue’s “A Day at B’nai” festival and open house.

ALBANY–B’nai Sholom Reform Congregation in Albany recently welcomed the community to “A Day at B’nai,” a festival and open house, held at the synagogue on Whitehall Road in Albany.  A bounce house, face painting, music and dance, and a social action project were featured.  ‘A Day at B’nai’ kicked off B’nai Sholom’s month-long ‘Countdown to Rosh Hashanah,’ a series of programs and themed Shabbat services.”
