B’nai Israel Calendar

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!
