Kalman The Scribe!  HHD Tickets! 
New Cantor Weekend!
Rosh Hashanah Honey!
Special Event with Kalman the Scribe
This Monday, August 20 at 7:30 pm at TBC!

One of the leading scribes (calligraphic artists) is The Jerusalem Scribe Kalman Safrut (Kyle Delmoor). Kyle was born in Minnesota, raised in New York and made aliyah to Israel where he has a workshop in an historic Sephardic synagogue in Old Jerusalem. Kyle's individually commissioned and designed verses of Torah are in much demand. One of his inscriptions adorns an international peace prize.  TBC is delighted and honored to be able to welcome and be inspired by him. Come join us on Monday night, August 20 at 7:30 for this demonstration/workshop/talk. You might even learn how to write your name in elegant Hebrew calligraphy.  R.S.V.P. to Judson Scruton (judsonscruton@optonline.net) to give us some idea of how many of you will be coming.

All recipients will be notified by email and will receive their honey at Rosh Hashanah services.  If a family has been chosen by more than one friend, they will receive one jar with a nice note listing all the donors.  You will be notified that one or more of your friends have chosen to send you honey, so you will have the opportunity to reciprocate if you wish.
