Hebrew for “strength together,” Koach B’yachad is TBE’s community organizing initiative. Over two years ago we started on a journey to come together as a collective whole to fight against social injustices and change the landscape of our community – here at TBE, within the surrounding local communities and in our community at large. Our congregation has recently selected “Growing Up Healthy” – our sense that life has changed in a way that makes it much harder for kids to grow up emotionally and physically safe – as an area of focus for our organizing campaign. We are now in the process of identifying areas where we can have the most far-reaching impact. Please join us as we begin to take action on this important organizing initiative.

TBE Congregants for Yes on 3: Repeal the Casino Deal
We're looking for TBE members interested in discussing the November 4 ballot question on casinos and the negative impact that casinos in Massachusetts would have on our most vulnerable residents. If you are interested in learning more about this issue or joining the cause, contact Ann-Mara & John Lanza.
Do You Have an Organization You Want to Support?
Is there an organization that you volunteer for or want to support? The TBE community wants to help you. The Tikkum Olam Committee will be supporting monthly item collections for non-profits that are important to our congregants. Maybe a local food pantry needs pasta, a children's support group needs books, a veteran's organization hopes for socks? Whatever the concrete needs, if you would like TBE to designate a month to collect whatever you identify would be useful to your cause, you can be the point person for that month. With support you can publicize information about your organization and have a designated collections box for your assigned month. You will be responsible for collecting and delivering the donations at the end of your month.
Contact Jennifer Meyerhardt to choose a month for your collection and to receive more information about our collections program. People are in need and TBE can help!
