What a 2017!
     Rabbi David Edleson returned for a second year, and we once again experienced his amazing talents. For one Kabbalat Shabbat, he rearranged our traditional prayers to fit Broadway hit tunes!
     In addition to leading Friday night services and Saturday morning Torah Study, Rabbi Edleson organized children's programs, officiated a wedding and a bar mitzvah, visited our home-bound congregants, and co-hosted services with other groups.  
     Of course, this summer was chockablock full of secular programming too. We hosted our highly successful classical music series "Sounds in the Sanctuary" on Friday late afternoons, presented speakers with each of our unique selection of Jewish films for the White Mountain Jewish Film Festival at the Colonial Theater, and along with the Bethlehem Public Library ran a Books of Jewish Interest book group.  Three of the selected book authors joined us. We even initiated a Walking Club that featured a mushroom hunt led by Dr. Roz Lowen, our own mycologist.

Since 1920, the Bethlehem Hebrew Congregation has served the religious, social, cultural and educational needs of New Hampshire’s North Country residents year ’round as well as seasonal residents and occasional visitors. Its historical building, dating back to the 1880s, is a landmark of American Jewish history, has been lovingly maintained and restored through the generosity of both residents and visitors.
