Due to the COVD-19 restrictions, many of our events are being held virtually and are live-streamed. As the County releases new guidelines, in-person events will begin taking place at Beth Chaim, adhereing to all COVID protocal. 

You do not need to be a Facebook member or be logged into Facebook to see and hear the Shabbat service, nor do you need to have a  account to participate in the Torah Study or many other events offered by Beth Chaim. 

Thank you all for enthusiastically embracing this new technology and helping to create such a loving and supportive virtual community within BCC.
