Hanukkah and Shabbat Celebration
TONIGHT, Friday, December 15 at 7:30 pm  
Bring your menorahs and come celebrate Hanukkah with your TBC family! 

Share the Light of Hanukkah with Others Less Fortunate

Make the 8th Night of Hanukkah a Giving Night for your kids or anyone else on your giving list. Donate either to the TBC Tzedakah Fund to support any or all our projects or choose one to which you and/or your kids feel some connection. For some suggestions, email Peggy and Jane.
Your Social Action Committee, using your generous donations to the Tzedakah Fund, has provided 12 $100 gift cards, through Wilton Social Services, for less fortunate children in Wilton.

Thanks so much. YOUR donations do make a BIG difference in OUR community!

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!
A wonderful way of celebrating special simchas, such as birthdays, anniversaries, graduations, the birth of a child or grandchild, is sharing your nachas with the entire congregation by sponsoring the Shabbat Oneg, Preneg or Flowers for the Friday of your special week. 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
