Shabbat TONIGHT, January 19 at TBC!

This weekend, thousands and thousands will march to honor the anniversary of last year's unprecedented Women's March. Join us at TBC this Friday night as we explore and are inspired by the strength of Jewish women's voices. Whether or not you're planning to march on Saturday, this service will get you thinking and charge you up!

Join us for services at 7:30 pm. Don't forget to wear something pink as a sign of solidarity with those participating in this year's Women's March!

The Nadel Family is sponsoring the oneg on the special occasion of Morgan's 18th birthday.
Consecration Celebration

A very big THANK YOU goes to the Past Presidents of TBC who are sponsoring a special oneg to honor our Consecration families!

Men's Club Business Networking Group
Sunday, January 21 at 9:30 am (During Religious School)
The primary goal of the first session of our new Business Networking Group will be to break the ice, enable members to get to know each other and each other's businesses, and establish expectations for the group going forward.

We'll start with a series of short activities led by Mike Bonheim designed to help members identify their needs, and from those needs define their goals and objectives for the networking series. We will then have a period of "structured engagement," a strategically designed group activity that will facilitate directed networking and interaction." Read more!!

This Men's Club business networking group is open to both men and women. Coffee and ... will be served throughout these sessions.

Save the date for our next session led by John Prins on Sunday, February 11.
Rabbi Bearman's Favorite Jewish Music!
Rabbi Bearman has started a playlist on Spotify with some of her favorite Jewish music (including Josh Nelson Project, Dan Nichols & Eighteen, and others).
 Give it a listen! She'd love to hear about Jewish artists and songs that you love!
Share Your Simcha - Sponsor a Preneg, Oneg or Flowers!

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
