Ner Shel Tzedakah
We have an opportunity to do a special Mitzvah
on the 6th night of Hanukkah, December 29th.

Make the 6th night of Hanukkah a night of 
"giving and not getting."


As part of your family celebration donate the value of a gift and
Make Hanukkah Happy for Some Needy Wilton Jewish Families!
 Through the good works of the Wilton Department of Social Services, we've been asked to support several Jewish Wilton families who celebrate Hanukkah by providing a $100 Gift Card for each of 15 children in these families. 
All you have to do is click here and donate what you can to the 
TBC Tzedakah (Social Action) Fund and indicate the donation is for "Make Hanukkah Happy for All Kids!" 

Just drop off some LEGOS and 
support of Carver's STEM education in their CASPER program -- an intensive project-based, hands on learning in science, literacy, and math for grades K-5 
TBC will be collecting gently used legos.
There will be lego bins at TBC from December 4, 2016- 
February 1, 2017 in the lobby.

Thank you to everyone who helped make our 
Hanukkah Celebration a huge success!

We shared our light with the world through prayer, song, dance, crafts and games.

Not a single latke or sufganiya was left over and we all had a wonderful time celebrating this beautiful holiday together.
