Tu B’Shvat Community Seder and Tree Celebration, Sun., Feb. 1st

Come celebrate Tu B’shvat, the celebration of the trees, with the whole TBEMC family.

We will begin with an ecology-themed community sing-along.
We will have read-alouds of favorite tree-themed stories.
At noon, we will have a Tu B’Shvat seder open to the entire Temple community.

Weather permitting, we will travel together to one of the local arboretums for an afternoon field trip to celebrate beautiful trees in person!

Book Club: Hesh Kestin’s “The Lie” Thurs., Jan. 22nd at 8 P.M.

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.”
