The BINA seniors are putting together a cookbook as their senior fundraiser. We are hoping that our community cookbook will have a culturally diverse array of recipes. This is why we are reaching out to you. For us to be successful, we need your participation in giving us a favorite recipe or two.
We are very excited to take on this huge project, but know that the end result, our cookbook, will be a delicious product of all of you. Please be as specific as you can, and include your name as you would like it printed in our cookbook. We will try to use as many recipes as we possibly can. Remit recipes, by December 15th, to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you, in advance, for your recipes and support! Have a great day!

We’re getting ready to compile the latest edition of the B’nai Israel Calendar. This useful calendar provides a handy reference for local businesses, holiday candle lighting times, birthdays, anniversaries, and yahrzeits. The ads and inscriptions we sell and purchase help us raise funds to keep B’nai Israel Congregation active and healthy as the Orthodox Shul for all Jews in Tidewater.
Please join us in:
|*||Selling ads to operators of businesses you patronize and/or advertising your own enterprise.|
|*||Buying ads with your personal messages or to honor or remember people .dear to you.|
|*||Listing dates important to you and your family.|
The forms linked below are modified for the website. You will receive these same forms in the shul e-mail on the full shul letterhead. Contact people you know who might benefit from reaching us as potential customers. Our advertising space is reasonably priced and reaches a group of very busy target consumers who appreciate the convenience of local businesses that meet our needs. Good for us and good for our advertisers!

As we live in Ghent—which tends to flood from time to time—we have but a small understanding of what is happening in Houston and its suburbs.
- National Chizuk U’Tefilla Campaign – As Jews, we believe in the power of Tefilla (prayer), and we must also show those who are facing devastation in Houston that they have brethren from far and wide who care about them. Please use this link to commit to recite Tehillim for the Zechut (merit) of the Houston community and you can also post messages of chizuk (support) that will be passed directly on to members of the community.
- Emergency Fundraising Campaign – As we work with the community to understand their specific needs, we will update our website with more information. Our full emergency fundraising campaign will launch with the next 24-48 hours. But for now—please click here to donate to the OU’s disaster relief fund in support of the Jewish community in Houston.
