Update on Bat Yam Activities during April and May

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Bat Yam Board voted last week to extend the winter Bat Yam season, which typically ends April 30, through May 31, and will consider further extensions as the Corona virus situation warrants. We are grateful to our Rabbi and our Cantor for their services to us during this time.

 As we have done for the last month, we will continue our use of Facebook and Zoom. Our Friday night Shabbat Welcome program will continue on Facebook Live, and our Saturday morning virtual Shabbat classes and Wednesday morning virtual “Coffee With Your Rabbi” will both continue via ZOOM.


You can find the Bat Yam Shabbat Welcome Program, which airs at 7p.m., on Friday evening on Facebook, at www.facebook.com/stephen.fuchs.  You will need a Facebook account to view this broadcast.  Rabbi Fuchs includes prayers, songs and a commentary on the Torah portion of the week.

 On Saturday mornings throughout May the Rabbi will lead classes on Zoom at 9:45. 


On Wednesday mornings at 11a.m. enjoy “Coffee with the Rabbi” an hour of open discussion, again on Zoom. 


If you would like to join any of the Zoom conversations, please email us at  batyamsanibel@gmail.com for an invitation.>



On Thursdays, November 14 and 21 and December 5, from 10:30 to 11:45 a.m., Rabbi Fuchs will offer a three-session seminar in Fellowship Hall. The series is free and open to the public. Participants may attend any or all of the classes. Rabbi Fuchs suggests you bring to the class whatever Bible translation you have.


Topics are as follows: 

  • November 14: The Magnificent Story of Creation

  • November 21: Eden, a Nice Place to Visit, but Would You Want to Live There?

   •   December 5: Cain and Abel: “The Symbol Story of the Human Soul”
