The community combines observance, passionate prayer and deep Torah study with creativity, openness and activism. Surrounded by stately, quiet neighborhoods and adjacent to the Delmar Loop, one of the most exciting urban oases in the country, Bais Abe is the perfect balance of urban energy and suburban calm.

    Synagogue Vegan Challenge Lunch & Learn: “A Sweet Savor: Does G-d *Want* Us to Eat Meat?”

    Shabbat, Oct 30th (All day)
    We are pleased to announce that Bais Abe is one of 11 synagogues nationwide selected by Shamayim Jewish Animal Advocacy to participate in their 5th annual Synagogue Vegan Challenge. Over the next year, we will host monthly events that serve vegan food and provide education about the Jewish, ethical, environmental, and health reasons for plant-based eating. This annual program, generously sponsored by VegFund, brings veganism to Jewish communities across the country through a friendly, food-based approach. Our kickoff event will be a Shabbat Lunch & Learn on October 30. Rabbi Garth Silberstein will speak on the topic, "A Sweet Savor: Does G-d *Want* Us to Eat Meat?" Join us for delicious food, enriching learning, and thoughtful conversation. To learn more about Shamayim’s vision or the Synagogue Vegan Challenge, go to www.shamayim.us.
