TBC Film Club
August 10, 2022 @ 7:30 pm

We will be meeting again for the film club on August 10 and discussing the film "They Came to Stay" available on Kanopy 

In the early 20th century, drawn by the promise of America, more than two million eastern European Jews fled poverty and oppression - gravitating to the Lower East Side of Manhattan. Poor and faced with innumerable confusing choices, they struggled to adapt their Jewish traditions to their new lives.

Hope you can join us. If you have any questions regarding the film club, please contact Ria Miller at riahmiller@hotmail.com
TBC congregants are invited to share news of their family events and celebrations in Chailites. Please send your information to chailites@templebnaichaim.org.
TBC is Here For You!

If you or a family member is ill or in need of care - or if you know of someone in our community who needs help - please contact Cantor Harriet. Our Caring Committee is here to provide assistance - meals, rides to doctors' appointments or shopping.
Dorothy Day Hospitality House, July 6

TBC now staffs the Dorothy Day Hospitality House (aka Danbury Soup Kitchen) the first Wednesday of each month. We provide about 80 meals each afternoon with COVID precautions followed. Everyone who comes to the door is welcomed with no questions asked. All work at Dorothy House is done by volunteers — there is no paid staff. At this time, we need about 4 people to take care of each day. 

Dorothy Day Hospitality House is based on the Houses of Hospitality founded by Dorothy Day during the Great Depression. It is not formally affiliated with any religious organization, and people of all faiths participate in their work. Contact: Peggy Zamore at peggyz18@gmail.com
