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.  

Drop off location: Temple B'nai Chaim

Share Your Simcha - Sponsor a Preneg, Oneg or Flowers!

A great way of celebrating special simchas, such as birthdays, anniversaries, graduations, the birth of a child or grandchild, is sharing your nachas with the entire congregation by sponsoring the Shabbat oneg, preneg or flowers for the Friday of your special week. No special occasion? You can still sponsor a Shabbat! We will arrange for the flowers, food, and set-up, you just make a minimum donation of $125 for an oneg, $180 for a Preneg or $250 for the flowers.  Sponsor a Shabbat!
