Healing Service

A Service for Comfort, Hope and Renewal. Join Cantor Jodi Sufrin and lay leaders in the Sanctuary for this service. Built around the intent of the Mi  Shebeirach, this newly designed and evolving service intends to create a safe place for those in need of physical or emotional comfort – including caregivers.  As part of TBE's Jewish response to supporting those with physical or emotional distress, this new service will include music, prayer and contemplative practice.

Come as you are, and find sanctuary in this service designed to provide comfort, hope, and renewal.

Health Care Proxy and Power of Attorney
For Parents of Older Teens
Sunday, March 13, 7:30 pm

We often hear the words, "Today I am a man" at a Bar Mitzvah, knowing perfectly well that adulthood is many years off.  At age 18, our children are considered adults--this can have serious implications for our families.  What if an 18 year old has a serious accident?  If there is no health-care proxy, parents have no say in their child's treatment. For parents of children 18 and over, there are important documents that you should know about.  We have invited lawyer and TBE member Peg Metzger to share her wisdom with us.
