Hearing Loop Installed

BHC has installed a new hearing loop system in our main gathering areas that effortlessly ties into a tiny receiver already built into most hearing aids and cochlear implants. Hearing loops transmit the audio from a PA system directly to telecoil-equipped hearing aids and cochlear implants. Simply switch your hearing aid to T Coil.

The BHC Hearing Loop Project was supported by generous gifts from Dr. Ira Kolman, Betty W. Cohen and the Selma T. & Joseph Wagner Fund.

Selichot, Saturday, September 20 • BHC 

7 pm - Selichot, BHC

 

Saturday, September 20, 9 pm, BHC will present a program of art and remembrance. In preparation for the High Holy Days, we will be treated to a talk by Ruth Oppenheim entitled “Beyond Kristallnacht.” Ruth is the mother of our congregant, Claudia Cameron, whose artwork will grace the Hoffberger Gallery. The reception for the show, “My Mother’s Story,” which connects to Ruth’s life, will precede her mother’s program. The evening will continue with an inspiring Selichot (Forgiveness) Service at 10 pm in the Hoffberger Chapel. It is our annual “warm up” for the High Holy Day season, with beautiful choral music and poetry setting a sacred mood. The program and service are open to the public. All are welcome to join us for a light reception beginning at 7 pm. For more information call 410-764-1587.

High Holy Day Food Drive Kick-Off: The 2014 High Holy Day Food Drive for GEDCO Cares Food Pantry will kick off on Wednesday, September 24 at Rosh Hashanah Under The Stars. We will communicate additional details about the drive as we approach Rosh Hashanah. We will collect at BHC near the Hoffberger Chapel entrance and on the parking lot during the food drive. Volunteer support would be greatly appreciated.

Although collecting for GEDCO Cares is a year-round effort at BHC, our biggest collection occurs during the High Holy Days. We are again counting on our membership to come through for GEDCO Cares. BHC is a proud member of GEDCO—Govans Ecumenical Development Corporation. Contact Steve Cornblatt, 410-868-6867, with any questions or to learn more about this important social action priority.
