Gesharim (Bridges)

TBE Buddies Connect You to Our Community

Throughout our history, Temple Beth Elohim has been known as a caring and welcoming community. We do understand, however, that our wide array of programs and events can feel overwhelming or confusing at times - both for our newest members and for those who are not involved at TBE on a regular basis. Please don't let that feeling be a barrier to joining in!
If you are a new member or a current member who wants to be more engaged in TBE life, we hope you will take part in our Gesharim (Bridges) program in which we match you (or your family) with a 'buddy' at TBE. Your buddy will be a congregant with whom you share some similarities, such as your life stage, interests, or the town where you live. Your buddy will be a personal resource and guide: helping you to navigate our vibrant and diverse congregation, build relationships, and create pathways toward community involvement.
If you would like to be matched with a friendly congregant who can help ease your transition or help you connect more deeply to TBE, contact Susan Karon, Member Engagement Manager, [email protected] or (781) 235-8419 x243.

Consider volunteering in the Gesharim program and fulfilling the mitzvah of welcoming a stranger. If you would like to serve as a volunteer or just want to learn more about the program, please also contact Susan Karon.
