Visiting Beit Simcha

On Thursday Dan and Patty Juster arrive in Pennsylvania to spend the weekend visiting Beit Simcha in Allentown. The congregation is led by Glenn and Pamela Blank and they have a vision to be a welcoming and inclusive community:

When you come, we’ll welcome you warmly at the door. At first, we offer the usual handshake and exchange of names. But we get to know our friends, most of us greet each other with hearty hugs.

They are very excited to be in the process of building their own synagogue and community house, where members of the congregation will be living together ...

Constructing the Community House will enable us to be more intentional about our vision for a community, welcoming others to experience Erev Shabbat dinners, havurah, prayer and Bible study meetings, and Shacharit (morning) prayer services, all to be held in a common room attached to the Community House and open to the public.

Dan and Patty will be speaking at the morning service this Shabbat and you can get directions to go and here them here.
