Classes: Life and Text with Rabbi Mark Asher Goodman Wednesdays, 12:15 pm EST
Join Brith Sholom's rabbi in a discussion and text study on the weekly Torah portion. Together we will read and reflect on Hassidic texts - 17th, 18th and 19th century teachings from the rabbis of Eastern Europe - which were particularly interested in the emotional, psychological, and practical implications of Torah as it applies to our own lives. This class is for every level of knowledge and experience, from beginners to experts.
On November 29, 1897, a charter for a synagogue in the city of Erie was approved by a local judge and recorded December 28 of that year. Congregation Brith Sholom was born. In August 1901 the first building was purchased at 324 East 18th street. In February 1906, the "Brith Sholom Church," as it was called, was sold, and the congregation moved to a lot on French Street, between 7th and 8th Streets.
In 1950, the congregation moved into a new building---the Jewish Center on 32nd and State Street where we remain to date.
We invite participants young and old to join in Jewish traditions and explore our faith together.
Brith Sholom is an open and egalitarian Jewish community that welcomes you to our shul.
