TBC Seeking Town Ambassadors!


Do you enjoy meeting new people?

Do you enjoy talking about your town?

Do you take pride in being part of TBC?

If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, you're a good candidate to become a Town Ambassador.  Town Ambassadors will  assist the Membership Chairs by getting to know prospective members and helping them through the membership process.  If you'd like more information, please contact Susan Farber or Deborah List at: membership@templebnaichaim.org 

Let the Sun Shine - TBC to Go Solar!


As introduced at May's Congregational meeting, TBC has the opportunity to have solar energy panels installed on the roof of the new building, producing just about all of the electricity our building utilizes throughout the year.  Due to generous renewable energy credits, "green energy" financing and a robust solar marketplace, TBC has gone through a bidding/selection process and now has the opportunity to - at no cost to TBC - have a solar generation system completely installed and maintained on our behalf. 

Benefits of the system include cost-savings through a 20 year fixed electrical generation rate that is significantly lower than our current rate, as well as demonstrating our commitment to being mindful stewards of our environment.  Further, the panels themselves will be positioned in such a way as to complement and not interfere with the aesthetic of the new part of our building.  Interested in learning more and seeing renderings of the completed project?

Click here for more information and renderings.  After you've taken a look, we'd welcome hearing from you with any comments and/or questions.

Don't Forget the Turnover Shop!  

Temple B'nai Chaim receives 60% of the proceeds from your donations to the Wilton Turnover Shop, a non-profit thrift shop located in the Village Market building in Wilton Center.

The Turnover shop is run entirely by volunteers and benefits the Wilton schools' PTA and local nursing and home care. If you are cleaning out your closets, the shop will accept seasonal clothing, house wares, small furniture and collectibles. For further information, please email consignments@templebnaichaim.org.
