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.  You will be part of a team that will facilitate the growth of our synagogue. If you'd like more information, please contact Susan Farber or Deborah List at membership@templebnaichaim.org

TBC Diaper Collection Project!

The TBC Social Action Committee is seeking donations of diapers and wipes to benefit the Community Action Agency of Western Connecticut and the Domestic Violence Crisis Center, Stamford, and Person-to-Person, Norwalk.  For most parents, diapers for babies is a given.  If you are living in poverty, however, they are often a luxury.
