TBE Online

More than ever, we need the synagogue,
and more than ever, we need one another.

Our aspiration of shalom is one of wholeness for each individual, our community, and our world.

Care for each other, our greater community, and ourselves.

Care for Our TBE Community

At this time of physical distancing, we strive to ensure that we care for and connect with one another in many ways. We welcome any gestures of love and kindness and all requests, no matter how great or small they may seem.

Could you use a helping hand or listening ear?

  • Receiving continued check-in calls
  • Participating in a “coffee/tea date” with a congregant
  • Receiving groceries or supplies
  • Receiving technology support

Care for Ourselves

Darchei Tikvah/Pathways to Hope
Our new initiative collaborates with clergy and lay leaders to engage our community in promoting healing, restoring hope, and building internal strength to manage the challenges of this time. Please reach out with suggestions and join us on this path of restoration and renewal.

Reopening Updates

As the Talmud teaches, “To save one life is to save the entire world.” Our actions not only have the potential to keep someone else healthy and well, but to contribute to the global fight against COVID-19. It is with this Jewish value that we begin to prepare for the time when we might be able to resume some typical use of our building.
