TBEMC Stands with Israel

As Israel’s brave military forces defend our beloved homeland, Jewish Federations across North America are responding with humanitarian aid for victims of terror, from providing for basic, immediate needs to helping rebuild damaged infrastructure and ravaged lives, addressing the immense levels of trauma caused by these horrific events, and more.

Jewish Federation has launched an Israel Emergency Fund to mobilize resources for their network of partners on the ground. Please join us in supporting as you are able by clicking here.

As we grieve the tragic loss of Israeli life and the lives irrevocably changed, let us pray for the safety of all Israelis, those who have lost loved ones, and the safe return of the hostages while we band together as a family, a community, a people. 

You can also make a donation to the Rabbi’s Discretionary Fund, which Rabbi Kerbel will distribute to Friends of IDF, Israel Trauma Coalition, Magen David Adom, and United Hatzalah over the next few weeks.

A murder mystery, a comedy show, a Zumba class – see what we’ve been up to…

With this year being different in so many ways, we’ve also found new ways to keep spirits high among our members!

In late- February, we hosted our 2nd annual Trivia Night and Tricky Tray fundraiser to a sold-out crowd.
Our Sisterhood recently put on a Murder Mystery through Zoom where our members investigated–and were suspects in–a murder. Who knew we had so many characters in our temple?

Other recent events at TBEMC:

  • A film series celebrating Jewish comedies, from Brighton Beach Memoirs to Keeping the Faith
  • A stand-up comedy show
  • A virtual Zumba class
A lifelong learning class on the history of The Beatles

Stay tuned for more fun events at TBEMC!
