Eisenfeld is a Yankee by birth, a Virginian by choice, an urbanite who came to love the rural South, a Civil War buff, and a nonobservant Jewish woman. In Wandering Dixie, she travels to nine states, uncovering how the history of Jewish southerners converges with her personal story and the region’s complex, conflicted present. In the process, she discovers the unexpected ways that race, religion, and hidden histories intertwine.

Torah @ Wednesdays Returns -
Getting Ready for the High Holidays


Wednesday mornings on Zoom from 11:00 am - 12:15 pm on August 31 and September 7, 14, and 21


Please join Rabbi Ariana Capptauber and Rabbi Ron Muroff in a new course to help us prepare for the High Holidays offered by Hadar’s Project Zug during the month of Elul. 


The days of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur are filled with awe and anxiety. But, as we cultivate this stance of trembling before God, fearful of God’s awesome power and what the year may bring, we are challenged to reflect on the place of fear in our lives. In this four part course, through the study of texts from Tanakh (Bible), Talmud, Mussar (Ethical Literature), and Hasidut, we’ll explore the questions: how is cultivating a posture of fear in our lives helpful? How might it be harmful? What is the correct place of fear in our lives?

Beth El Temple and Chisuk Emuna are covering the cost of this program so there is no cost for our members. Please contact Patty Brown to register for this class: patty@bethelhbg.org or 717-232-0556.

This Week, Aug 18-27

As the number of COVID-19 infections in the community continues to increase, we are writing to inform you that the Chisuk Emuna COVID-19 Task Force met recently and modified our policies to address current conditions.  


The Task Force is aware that there is a range of opinions within our congregation regarding the Covid Guidelines. Please know that our congregants’ opinions are respectfully considered and discussed at length during each Task Force meeting.


Given that our priority is to protect each congregant’s well being, we are reinstating the masking mandate as of today. There are two exceptions to the mask mandate: 1) Anyone leading services or reading Torah/Haftarah can continue to elect to remove their mask. 2) We will continue to have Kiddush and other celebrations but we ask that you wear the mask when not eating. 


Please review the following guidelines.


Entry into the building requires the following:


  1. A surgical or higher quality face mask must be worn at all times except when eating. A cloth mask is unacceptable. 

  2. COVID vaccination if age 5 or older.

  3. No signs of respiratory or other contagious illness.

  4. If you have been exposed to COVID in the last 14 days, we ask that you do not eat or drink in the building.

  5. If you have had a positive COVID test in the last 10 days, you must call the office in advance and a COVID task force member will contact you.
