Welcome to Congregation B’nai Yisrael of Armonk


CBY Women Get Together and “Get Down”

To all you bright, capable, charming, interesting women of Congregation B’nai Yisrael: If you weren’t at the Guest House Retreat in Chester, Connecticut, on January 29-31, you really missed out! It was a weekend none of us who attended will soon forget. Twenty-five women across the age spectrum arrived, some as friends, some as acquaintances and a few as strangers; but on Sunday afternoon, we left as friends.


Being Audacious

By Rabbi Strom April Baskin is the Union for Reform Judaism’s Vice President of Audacious Hospitality. Yes, there is such a position. And yes, I will confess that I, like many, had a brief chuckle at the idea that such a high level of authority and responsibility has been devoted to such a particular area within the ranks of the Union.


An Unforgettable Evening in Spain

By Frederic J. Siegel Our family had the pleasure of spending Thanksgiving week in Spain because our daughter Matty, a junior in college, has been studying there since September. Despite the fact that the Spanish Inquisition (between 1478 and 1501) represented one of the worst periods for our people (those unwilling to convert and become Catholic were either killed or forced into exile from Spain), Judaism still lives in Spain today.
