Elon Stricker from AIPAC will speak at TBE on Tuesday, December 15 at 7:30 pm. Elon serves as the New England Synagogue Initiative Director, and the the topic of his presentation is "I Am Concerned About the Stalled Peace Process--Why Should I Support AIPAC?" He will also talk about AIPAC's Policy Conference on March 20-22, 2016 in Washington, DC. It's the largest gathering of the pro-Israel movement in America. Join Rabbi Katz and a TBE delegation at this important conference--we have a limited number of discount registrations still available.
We are excited to announce that we will receive and begin using the new Siddur Lev Shalem shortly after the beginning of 2016. We are offering you the opportunity to dedicate one or more copies of the new siddur in honor of or in memory of anyone, or to commemorate a special occasion (birthday, anniversary, wedding, birth of a child or grandchild, etc.). A bookplate will be placed in the front of each siddur with your name and message. Your help is greatly appreciated, as we need to order 400 books!
Hanukkah is coming, and this makes a special gift that will be used daily in our synagogue.
The cost is $36 per book. Please click here for an order form.
