The World Wide Wrap is a signature program of FJMC (Federation of Jewish Men’s Club) focusing on a unique ritual imbued with story and metaphor that spans ages and generations.
Sponsored by our Men’s Club in cooperation with the TBEMC Religious School, the event aims to introduce adults and children alike to the special ritual of wearing t’fillin during Jewish prayer.
Children in 5th-7th grades will join the adult morning minyan at 9AM, with the special chance to wear t’fillin. Adults will be on hand to show them how to do it.
The younger children in our school will get to try a set of t’fillin between 9:30 and 10:30 in the library, with the help of Men’s Club volunteers.
Our youngest students will even get to make a pair of pretend t’fillin using craft materials.
More info from FJMC can be found here.

The Lie is a gripping, morally complex thriller about a woman torn between idealism and maternal devotion in present-day Israel. Dahlia Barr, an attorney infamous for defending accused Palestinians in Israeli court, is jolted when her son Ari is kidnapped by Hezbollah, and she must decide whether to alter her principles in order to save her son.
Stephen King says The Lie is “a page-turner that will engage your mind and emotions in a way few novels do. The narrative is headlong, the issues have never been more current, and the characters come alive from the page. The Lie is what great fiction is all about.”
