Join Beth Shalom on the beach! We will explore Golden Gardens together at low tide, the best time to look for creatures that call our beaches home. Melani Baker, our Engagement Director and former Seattle Aquarium employee, will guide our exploration. We will also provide a handout for anyone to explore on their own. This activity is for all ages – adults, families, all are welcome!
Please RSVP below. Questions? Contact Melani.

Say the word “antisemitism” and we Jews instinctively know in our kishkes what the word means. Recent events have reminded us once again what antisemitism looks like, sounds like, and feels like, both locally and around the world. We recognize, too, how the deafening silence in response to this hatred makes us feel. Still we can have difficulty explaining antisemitism to others – to our colleagues, our neighbors, our Facebook friends, and even our children. Join Hilary Bernstein, respected education consultant and CBS member, on Zoom for a thoughtful presentation on the complexities of antisemitism, how it affects our Jewish community, and strategies we might use to encourage others to be more supportive allies.
RSVP below by 5pm on June 21 to receive the Zoom link. You can also check the CBS Facebook page or Cybershul email for the link.
