TBE Shabbat Dinners

Upcoming Events


Special Shabbat Evening & Dinner Program
Friday, May 18, 6:00 pm

Inspired by the Ma’asim Tovim (Community Service) work of TBE 6th and 7th graders to support the non-profit NEADS, National Education for Assistance Dog Service World Class Service Dogs, Jessica Kensy & Patrick Downes, two Boston-marathon bombing survivors and their dog Rescue, trained by NEADS, will share their story with our community at TBE on May 18. Jessica, Patrick and Rescue will join our Yaldeinu: Families with Young Children Shabbat at 5:30 pm, community Shabbat services at 6:00 pm, and a special Shabbat dinner afterward, where the couple will perform a demonstration with Rescue and answer questions. This evening we will also honor all of our 6th and 7th graders for their Ma'asim Tovim community service work.
