Sivan Cohen, our Community schlicha will be the Friday night guest speaker at B’nai Israel on Dec. 10, beginning at 7:30 p.m. She is a connoisseur of Israeli wine and spirits and will host a wine tasting during the Oneg after services.


Sivan brings much life experience to her current position as schlicha for the entire Metro area. She is a Physiotherapist by profession and a wine sommelier representing several Israeli wineries and distilleries. Sivan will talk about her impressions of Jewish Life here in our area and discuss some of the programs and groups she has been involved with so far. We look forward to getting more acquainted with our emissary from Israel!


Services will be led by congregation members and we invite anyone to join us in our historical synagogue on Mynster St. in Council Bluffs. Everyone is always welcome at B’Nai Israel
