Please join us on Sunday, March 6 for the 8th annual Nechamen/Chernick Breakfast, sponsored by the Program Committee. The breakfast begins at 9:15 am, following minyan at 8:30 am. This event raises funds for the Nechamen/Chernick Scholarship Fund, which provides scholarships for member children to attend Jewish educational and summer programs. Everyone is welcome to stay for TBE’s Annual Meeting which follows at 10:30 am.
This year's honoree is Dan Plotkin. Dan has served as Chair of our House Committee for the past several decades, and we are delighted to recognize him for his many years of service to TBE.
The Program Committee will prepare a delicious hot breakfast for this event. The cost is $10 per person if paid by March 1, or $15 if paid after that date or at the door. Please make your reservations by calling the temple office at 733-4149 or click here to R.S.V.P. online. Contributions in Dan’s honor can be made to the Nechamen/Chernick Scholarship Fund.
Join us on Wednesday evening, March 23, when TBE will host a Community Purim Celebration. Our evening service and Megillah reading will begin at 6:30 pm, and the Mardi Gras-themed party will follow at approximately 7:30 pm.
We will be joined by our friends from Congregation B'nai Torah and Sinai Temple after their Megillah readings, as well as families from Heritage Academy for a fun party! The party will feature Creole food, hamantaschen, Dixieland jazz, children's activities, a mitzvah-making booth, and, of course, plenty of Mardi Gras bead necklaces.
One of the mitzvot of Purim is to give gifts to the poor (matanot l’evyonim). TBE’s Sisterhood is partnering with Dress for Success to help our members fulfill this mitzvah by collecting new and gently-used business-appropriate apparel and accessories for women in need who are looking for employment. During the party, and for the entire week of Monday, March 21, we will have a clothing rack and collection box in the lobby where you can drop off your donations. Items that are needed include: suits, skirts, blouses, shoes, and accessories including handbags, jewelry and unused cosmetics. If possible, please bring clothing on hangers. Your support can make a difference in the lives of countless women in our community.
Our Community Purim Celebration is for all ages, not just children. We hope to see you there!
The Sandi Kupperman Learning Center (SKLC) will honor Caryn Resnick, our esteemed Director of Education, on Saturday, April 2 at 6:30 pm at Temple Beth El. The party will start with cocktails and a 5-star dinner, followed by lively, interactive musical entertainment with New England Dueling Pianos and late-night dancing. This event is a bi-annual fundraiser for the SKLC to support the educational programs for students of all ages at TBE.
Caryn Resnick has been responsible for the educational programming throughout our synagogue for people of all ages, from toddlers to great-grandparents, for more than 20 years. We hope that you'll join us on April 2nd to celebrate Caryn with an evening worthy of her spirit!
The cost to attend is $75 per person. There will also be an opportunity to show your support for the SKLC by placing an ad or message for Caryn in an electronic ad book to be shown throughout the evening. A special website is currently under construction where you will be able to make your reservations and place your ad. We hope you will show your generous support to help the SKLC continue Caryn's vision of Jewish educaiton for years to come, and celebrate this outstanding educator and organizational treasure.
We are excited to announce that we will receive and begin using the new Siddur Lev Shalem shortly after the beginning of 2016. We are offering you the opportunity to dedicate one or more copies of the new siddur in honor of or in memory of anyone, or to commemorate a special occasion (birthday, anniversary, wedding, birth of a child or grandchild, etc.). A bookplate will be placed in the front of each siddur with your name and message. Your help is greatly appreciated, as we need to order 400 books!
Hanukkah is coming, and this makes a special gift that will be used daily in our synagogue.
The cost is $36 per book. Please click here for an order form.
