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!

The Fund has helped hundreds of Israeli families. Please join us in providing comfort for those whose lives are suddenly overturned by trauma.
