Finding Your Place in the Liturgy

The High Holiday liturgy is full of allusions to concepts that might jar our contemporary sensibilities, such as God’s kingship, reward and punishment. We will discuss how to reconstruct our understanding of this language so that it can be personally meaningful.

This Rosh Hashanah, give your friends at TBI a gift of delicious, locally-produced honey and wish them a sweet new year. Complete the order form by Thursday September 10, 2015. Sponsored by the TBI Brotherhood.

Calling all crafters, artisans & fair trade vendors! This year’s Craft and Fair Trade Bazaar will feature hand-made crafts, Fair Trade and Non-Profit vendors.

Whatever your creative hand-made skill or fair trade project, we’re hoping you will participate in TBI’s Crafts and Fair Trade Bazaar on Sunday, November 22nd just in time for Chanukah and the holiday season.
