“Run for Their Lives” is a global movement to continue to raise awareness and attention calling for the immediate release of the hostages held by Hamas. The local Albany group will meet 1x/week for a walk run of at least 1km. We wear unified shirts for the hostages. Collectively it is a group that is peaceful (we will not be protesting) and is united by our love for one another. This organization is inclusive- we encourage individuals of all religions and ethnicities to join if interested. 💙🤍💙   
You can find more info here.   Link to shirts 

In Our Community

Our Board of Trustees stands. We stand with Israel and hope and pray for the release of innocent hostages. Last night, a place was set at our monthly Board Meeting for Naama Levi. Naama, age 19, was an Israeli exchange student in the home of the parents of our very own Cantor Short. Bring them home.


Supporting Israel

We are living in a time of unbelievable stress and challenges. On October 7, 2023, as we were celebrating the holiday of Simchat Torah and the beginning of our youngest students' religious education, Hamas began their killing rampage. 

As Jews in America, we watch in horror. The atrocities of our ancestors is still ever present today. How we cope, how we speak to our children and how we answer our innocent questioning neighbor are all being tested.

We are stronger together. We are continually gathering resources to help navigate this challenging time. Our Beth Emeth community is a place where we hope you come to find kinship, love and support. Our doors are open (actually, they are locked and we appreciate your understanding at increased security.) Please, come to a Friday night service, or join one of our educational, community or social action events. Life is easier to navigate when you surround yourself with people who understand what you are going through.

Our clergy are here for you.

What Can I Do Right Now?

Pick Up A Blue Ribbon for Israel

Stop by the temple office and pick up a blue ribbon from Jewish Federation to show global unity in solidarity with hostages and their families.
