Welcome to Beth Chaverim:                Our House of Friends!

 

We are Building a House of Friends, One Family at a Time, By Creating a Welcoming Jewish Home for a Diverse Community.

 

Beth Chaverim means “House of Friends” in Hebrew.  That is what you will find at Beth Chaverim Reform Congregation.  We are a welcoming community, connecting with one another and centuries of Jewish tradition.  We are filled with energy, warmth and spiritual meaning.  We celebrate our diversity – we are young families, seniors, singles, teens, empty nesters, interfaith families, same sex couples, Jews by birth and Jews by choice.

We are more than a congregation – we’re a family, a community and friends.

Look around our website and see what we have to offer. Then join us for a relaxed, welcoming Erev Shabbat service, a Tot Shabbat, or our special Jammin’ Shabbat service.  Join an adult learning class and bring your elementary school age children to our junior youth group events. Come light the Chanukah menorah at our Chanukah service,  munch on hamentashen at our Purim shpiel, and celebrate freedom at our community Passover Seder.  Find your place in our community.

There is a place for you at Beth Chaverim.

Make Sure Your Vote Counts This Year!

Due to concerns about infection at crowded polling places and also due to lessened availability of poll workers, voters are encouraged to take advantage of either early in-person or mail-in voting. If you choose to vote by mail, NOW is the time to request your ballot, so it may be sent to you without delay on September 18. Click HERE to apply. You should then submit your vote as early as possible after receiving your ballot, since the Virginia Board of Elections has cautioned that ballots mailed close to the Virginia state deadline (7 pm on Nov. 3) may not be received in time to be legally counted. Mail-in ballots will include barcodes for tracking where your ballot is at any given time.

You can also vote early in person at your local registrar’s office or local satellite voting location (no excuse necessary) beginning September 18 and ending Saturday, October 31. This is an easy and secure way to vote, and allows for social distancing. Whatever method you choose, please make sure that you vote this year!

BCRC Shabbat has gone Remote 

You won't find us in the building these days since we are all social distancing. But we still continue to celebrate Shabbat every week. Our need to get together as a house of friends is greater than ever! Our Zoom services have been a great success. Login information will be sent to all members EACH FRIDAY before the services begin - watch for it in your in box. Non-members are welcome to celebrate with us! Contact our office at office@bcrcva.org and you can receive the information as well.
