Temple B'nai Chaim Congregational Meeting
May 27, 2021
7:30pm via Zoom
The TBC Congregational Meeting will take place on Thursday, May 27, 2021. Remember, to join this meeting you will need to register on ZOOM!
At Temple B'nai Chaim, there are two Congregational meetings each year, held in November and May. This is your opportunity to hear what's going on, vote on important issues, ask questions and get to know one another.  

Please come participate in our community! A quorum of member families is required to conduct TBC business. Attendance will be taken on Zoom. 

**Please make every effort to attend and participate in these critical conversations.**
New: To respect everyone's time, and understanding that many of us are Zoomed out, we hope to keep this meeting to no more than 1 1/2 hours. To help us do this we have prepared an Annual Report. It includes all of the TBC committee reports, President's remarks, leadership's vision for TBC's future plus additional information. Please review this report prior to the meeting. Submit any questions you may have to in advance of the meeting. That way we can incorporate responses to those questions in our live remarks. We will take questions at the meeting and look forward to your input. The Annual Report is at the bottom of this email. 


Opening D'var, Cantor Harriet Dunkerley
