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.

Rereading – and Reimagining – Sacred Story

Rereading – and Reimagining – Sacred Story jemerman October 3, 2022

"Tell me a story" is a constant refrain for those of us with children in our lives. Almost as often, when the last page is turned, the child looks up and asks, "again?" Sometimes, this is a joy. Sometimes, re-reading, and re-reading some more, becomes a burden.

Antisemitism Finally Hits Home for Me

Antisemitism Finally Hits Home for Me jemerman September 29, 2022

In the many years (57 to be exact) that I have been in an interfaith marriage, I felt somehow removed from antisemitism. I was raised in a Roman Catholic family, and, while there were a few comments from aunts and uncles when I got engaged, it was the 1960s, and I was in love. I believed we would figure it out as we went along.
