We embrace and inspire Jews of all ages with:

Communal celebration of Jewish living: 
Meaningful and easy-to-follow services; enjoying a cup of coffee together after a delicious kiddush luncheon; getting together for good times and holidays among friends, in shul or out.

Exceptional Jewish learning:
Rabbi Michael Singer says that teaching is one of his favorite things, and it shows in the fascinating classes he leads and brings to your level, whether you are a newbie or a Torah scholar.

Social connections:
Brith Sholom is “where friends become family” because we have a mix of transplants and Lehigh Valley natives, ages ranging from 9 months to vibrant 90s, and diverse interests and professions, yet are able to forge meaningful relationships. All this in the context of a loving, spiritually engaging, and passionate traditional and evolving Judaism.

Letters from the Rabbi's Desk

Political versus Partisan –
Why religion needs to be politically engaged

One of the things I appreciate the most about studying Talmud is the concept of nuance. The rabbinic worldview is not set in black and white but instead echoes the reality of a band of fine distinctions and possibilities. Granted this can sometimes be misunderstood or difficult to pin down but I believe this worldview reflects the actual reality of living in an imperfect world. In my eighteen years in the pulpit and as Chair of the Rabbinical Assembly’s Social Justice Commission, I have often listened to the refrain that rabbis should not be political. It is here that I think an important distinction should be made and clarified. There is a difference between something that is political and something that is partisan.
