Stop Hunger Now
Sign Up for Stop Hunger Now

On Saturday, October 24, TBC will be participating as a congregation in the 5th annual Stop Hunger Now packaging event in Wilton. 

Last year we packaged over 160,000 meals that were sent to Haiti.  TBC was well represented by about 90 volunteers. 

Our goal is to again package over 160,000 meals this year and raise $3500 as a Congregation that will fund 12,000 meals which will be sent to hungry children in developing countries. 

 This year each meal costs $0.29 (an increase of 4 cents/meal) so $1.45 buys 5 meals, $15 buys 52 meals and $100 buys 345 meals -- still a really good deal.

Now is the time to sign up to volunteer by clicking here
Don't forget that children 5 and older can help (our 5-year-olds last year had a fantastic time and really contributed!).

 This form will enable you to make a donation and/or register to work one of the 2 hour shifts on October 24th. 

 We hope that you will continue TBC's support for this event.  All who have participated in the past have found it to be both fun and a meaningful way of participating in Tikun Olam.
 If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Don Weber at mdweb27@me.com

What Will You Go to Bat for in 5776?

Brought to you by RAC.org 

Last week at a professional development retreat, I asked staff of the  Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism to choose their walk-up song - you know, the music that echoes out into the stadium each time a player takes the plate? The players choose those songs (to learn more about walk up music see this  history in the New York Times - with Chicago White Sox origins - and this fantastic  ESPN commercial ).

At our retreat, we played the songs and guessed who choose which song.  It was a fun bonding activity that had the bonus of leaving us with an  energizing playlist  to get us pumped up during L'Taken season. 

But it's more than this: We are walking up to bat in the real game of life in this new year. We will be heading to Capitol Hill this year to advocate for a more just, compassionate and better America.

What are you going to bat for in 5776?
