Burgers and Brews Shabbat
Friday, June 17, 5:30 pm

Join us as we welcome summer for a fun evening in the TBC Courtyard for a very short Shabbat service (15 minutes at most) followed by burgers (beef and veggie) and hot dogs, salads, and refreshments including a nice cold brew (soft drinks for the kids) and an opportunity to get together and have a fun evening.

Speaking of fun, we will have a bouncy house for the kids and perhaps some surprise games for kids and adults alike.

Yahrzeit Memorial Plaques at TBC

During this challenging time, we know that many of us are thinking of loved ones who have passed away. We invite you to commemorate the lives and blessings of your loved ones with a memorial plaque. A special service of dedication for the entire community will be scheduled at TBC when that again becomes possible. Ordering information is available here.
