Save the Date for Stop Hunger Now
On Saturday, October 21, TBC will be participating in the 7th annual Rise Against Hunger (formerly Stop Hunger Now) packaging event in Wilton. Last year we packaged over 167,000 meals that were sent to Haiti. TBC was well represented by about 90 volunteers. 
Our goal is to package over 160,000 meals this year and raise $3,500 as a Congregation that will fund 12,000 meals which will be sent to hungry children in developing countries. If you would like to support this event, send a check to TBC and note that it is for Rise Against Hunger or contribute online. This year each meal costs $0.29!
The sign-up will be later in September and further details will be provided soon. Don't forget that children 5 and older can help (our 5-year-olds last year had a fantastic time and really contributed!). If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Don Weber
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!

Share Your Simcha - Sponsor a Shabbat, Oneg, Preneg or the 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
