What's Going On

  • Give thanks for the harvest and the end of 40 years of Jewish wandering as we celebrate Sukkot on Friday, September 28. Begin the evening with family and friends at 6:00 pm with a scrumptious community feast hosted by the Membership Committee. Services under the sukkah, led by Rabbi Kort, with music by Al Friedman, will begin at 7:30 pm. Please bring warm layers and lots of ruach as we join in song and prayer, and shake the lulav and etrog!

  • Help construct the TBO sukkah on Sunday, September 23, 10:15 am. Please bring a 4-6 foot ladder and screw gun with #2 Phillips bit, if you have one. The sukkah will be dismantled on Sunday, September 30 at noon. Please bring the same tools, if available.  Contact Ron Green if you have any questions.
