Israel and Overseas Connections

Israel Connection

The Israel Connections Committee seeks to deepen our congregation’s commitment to and understanding of Progressive (Reform) Judaism in Israel. In addition, our committee seeks to involve a variety of TBE congregants through varied educational efforts including speakers, films, and support of Israeli artisans, businesses and more. We also coordinate a program to support emergency relief and/or victims of terror through personal connections.

Odessa Connection

TBE has a special relationship with the Reform Congregation in Odessa through the World Union for Progressive Judaism. The Odessa Connection Committee partners TBE with a congregation in Ukraine by sharing experiences and supporting their community through Judaica, photographs, music, etc. We seek to educate TBE on the Jewish communities of the FSU.
