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.

Comfort & Care for Our Community

If you or someone you know is now eligible to receive the vaccine according to the Mass.gov Phase Guidelines and needs assistance registering for the vaccine, please click on the secure link titled “I need assistance.” Please encourage anyone you know who is in need of support to reach out—we are happy to assist anyone who needs help, whether or not they’re a member of the TBE community. If you are able to volunteer and help others register for their vaccines, please click on the secure link titled “I can help.”

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.
