Passover Community Seder - Saturday, March 31 at 5:45 pm   

This year TBC will again welcome  members and guests to a Community  Passover Seder on Saturday, March 31 (Second Night of Passover). The Seder begins at 6:00 pm, so please arrive by 5:45 pm.

This is a great opportunity to meet together with friends and congregants and strengthen our community. This  event is open to all, and members are encouraged to invite their non-TBC friends and acquaintances, of any denomination!

The meal will be a catered 4-course Kosher-style dinner with vegetarian options. The cost is $36 for adults and $18 each for children 11 to 18 years old. Children 10 and under are free.

RSVP by March 23. Sisterhood is sponsoring the Seder, so please consider a donation to Sisterhood to help underwrite the cost! You may donate when you RSVP or, if you will not be attending, click here to donate and select Sisterhood Fund from the dropdown. Contact Sisterhood if you have any questions or concerns.

Men's Club Business Networking Group
Sunday, March 18 at 9:30 am (During Religious School)

Our Business Networking Group will be held Sunday, March 18 at 9:30 am. The first two sessions were a booming success. These exciting sessions are open to ALL members, not just the business community or only men. Please join us.  Our third session will be formatted with your ideas.  As a community, TBC congregants have always supported each other personally, here's our chance to do the same professionally!

The structure of this session will include 3 minute presentations from select congregants introducing their businesses, and identifying a need or challenge they would like to present to the group. Each presentation will be followed by brief discussions around the topics raised in the presentation, and ways anyone could help.

After the formal presentations and discussions, we will have time for an open networking meet and greet, where everyone will have the chance to see what knowledge or connections may exist in the congregation and how we can support each other professionally. Join us to make connections with other members, profit from their experience, guidance, and knowledge, and perhaps forge partnerships - all with the ultimate goal of helping everyone grow their business.

Please contact Mike Bonheim for more information or if you would like to present at this gathering. 
This Men's Club business networking group is open to all TBC members, both men and women. Coffee and ... will be served throughout these sessions. Looking forward to seeing you.   Jeff
