[email protected] brings together the women of our community through fun social gatherings and stimulating Jewish themed programs. Events are planned by committee members and are led by our magnificent clergy and staff as well as congregants and speakers with expertise in various fields.
[email protected] is open to all congregants who identify as women.
Want to connect with a bunch of great women and help out on the [email protected] committee? We would love your input and enthusiasm and there's not a lot of heavy lifting! Contact Stephanie Kasok, [email protected] or Sheryl Perechocky, [email protected], co-chairs, for more information.
[email protected] offers delightful social opportunities and wonderful learning programs for all who identify as women in the TBE community. In May a group of us gathered at TBE for a night of beading jewelry with Sarapaan of Wellesley, and in July several dozen gathered for a wondrous evening of acoustic music and a delicious meal while we visited each other under the stars in the TBE rear courtyard. We have a wonderful lineup of learning and social events schedule for the coming year. Join us for any and all of our upcoming programs.

Please join [email protected] for a stimulating and engaging discussion through a Jewish lens on the importance of recognizing and advocating women’s value in the work we do, whether paid or unpaid. The evening will be guided by Rabbi Saphire, and enlightened by the research and work of congregants Nan Langowitz (Founding Director of Babson’s Center for Women’s Entrepreneurial Leadership and Professor of Management) and Danna Greenberg (Walter Carpenter Chair at Babson College and author of the forthcoming Maternal Optimism: Positive Paths Through Work and Motherhood).
