The Home of Temple B’nai Israel

Welcome to Temple B’nai Israel, the Satell Center for Jewish Life on the Eastern Shore. Visit to meet us and enjoy our activities. We have occupied our new home since June, 2018, and it has more than fulfilled our expectations. It is so much more than a space for religious services. Our Temple is home to a variety of activities, including religious school and adult education, special lectures with guest speakers, a book club, a variety of social activities, films, music, and a meeting place for community activities. We welcome interfaith couples and support an active, visible presence on the Mid-Shore.

Rabbi Peter Hyman has been with the congregation since 2008, our first full time Rabbi. He has had a major impact in making B’nai Israel a central part of the inter-faith community.

We look forward to greeting you with the warm welcome of an intimate, friendly and easily approachable congregation. Join us and share your ideas and energy and become part of our growth on the Eastern Shore.

Remembrance and Beyond: International Holocaust Remembrance Day

Remembrance and Beyond: International Holocaust Remembrance Day rj-admin-new January 27, 2022

What does it mean to remember? It is to live in more than one world, to prevent the past from fading, and to call upon the future to illuminate it.

Film Review: Breaking Bread

Film Review: Breaking Bread jemerman January 25, 2022

It's rare to find a documentary set in the Middle East that isn't mired in politics and discord. Rarer still is one bathed in the kind of optimism and goodwill found in Beth Elise Hawk's new film, Breaking Bread. An inside look at a three-day food festival in Haifa, Israel, pairing Israeli and Muslim Arab chefs, Breaking Bread pursues peace through the power of creating top-notch cuisine.

Going Beyond Roe to Honor its 49th Anniversary

Going Beyond Roe to Honor its 49th Anniversary jemerman January 24, 2022

Last Saturday, January 22nd, marked the 49th anniversary of the US Supreme Court's landmark Roe v. Wade decision. The Roe decision was revolutionary, as it protected a pregnant person's right to have an abortion, without excessive government restrictions. Now, we face a grim reality that Roe may not reach its 50 th anniversary. This spring, the Court will deliver its decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization, the case that could functionally overturn Roe. If this happens, almost half the states in the US are poised to ban abortion entirely.

Taking a Breath for Life: the Union for Reform Judaism's Actions to Build Resilience

Taking a Breath for Life: the Union for Reform Judaism's Actions to Build Resilience jemerman January 19, 2022

On Tu Bishvat we celebrated trees and a season of new growth. I've been doing lots of thinking about trees, as I frequently do, and the role they play in providing oxygen for the planet. At the Union of Reform Judaism, we provide oxygen to our communities by creating compassionate spaces for our participants to grow and thrive. We can respond to current and future challenges by fostering resilience that reflect our Jewish values.
