Tell YOUR Story!
L’Dor V’Dor

Why is this Year different from all other years?

Because this year we are offering an opportunity to share YOUR story with family or close friends during Passover Pathways.   Be a part of StoryCorps TBE.

How?

Come with a family member (siblings, grandparents, parent, child…) or friends and learn about intergenerational Passover experiences and a way to record your stories. Leave with new ideas to enhance your Seder experience and to connect to the stories of generations. Save the Passover memories using the NPR Story Corps App. Reserve your time with Lynn Burke, [email protected].

Questions? Contact Beth Tishler, [email protected]

Who has the best brisket at TBE?

Enter a chance to win the first brisket cook off at TBE. All members welcome to show off your famous brisket recipe. Enter as a team or an individual for bragging rights and the chance to take home the golden brisket! Briskets will be judged by everyone who comes in and tastes a sample. You can vote for your favorites!

Guidelines:

  1. All Briskets must be able to be eaten on Passover ie; no flour, beans, bread etc.
  2. Meat does NOT have to be Kosher – but please adhere to TBE rules; no pork,  shellfish or dairy
  3. Briskets must be made at home BUT can be heated in the ovens at TBE
  4. Please have your recipe available for everyone’s view
  5. Deadline to enter is March 25

This is a tremendous way to taste everyone’s brisket and more importantly to hang out and have some laughs. Good luck AND May the best brisket WIN!

Boat of Hope

Students in the K-5 Limud program will be participating in Passover Pathways on April 3 by contributing to the Boat of Hope. Many refugees flee on a daily basis by boat. Limud classes will have an opportunity to make a difference by writing notes of hope and joy, welcoming refugee families, as well as contributing their tzedakah to the relief efforts. All tzedakah collected on April 3 will be donated to TBE's Syrian Refugee Relief Fund. The Family Social Action Group (FSAG) has organized this opportunity.
