Open Geniza

May 2 @ 5:00 pm - 5:30 pm

  • This event has passed.

A Geniza is a place to store sacred Jewish documents and objects no longer used by a synagogue. On Thursday, May 2 we will open the Geniza with our Beit Sefer students and add to the cache of sacred materials that Beth Emet does not use.  Please join us for a look into this sacred space. Members are encouraged to bring worn-out prayerbooks, Torah commentaries, or text study sheets on religious topics to be buried in this ceremony. Feel free to drop them off in the front office during regular business hours all week. Click to learn more about Geniza Burial or to check what qualifies to be buried.
