Sundays at TBI – A Place to Gather, Learn, and Enjoy Time Together!

TORAH 101 – BOOKS OF SAMUEL – Join us Sunday, December 17, 2017 at 9:00AM. A great Rabbi (Rabbi Weinberg) once wisely remarked, “One can much better understand the evolution of the Davidic monarchy in the Books of Kings by beginning with the Books of Samuel”. Consequently, this year’s Torah 101 will explore Samuel 1 and 2 as a prelude to Kings. First-timers and longtime participants equally welcome!

HEBREW CLASSES with Rabbi Jim Sagarin – 9:00AM; 10:00AM; 11:00AM – email Rabbi Jim Sagarin for placement or call the Temple Office.

HERZL HOLIDAY PROJECT – Didn’t get your gift by the 10th?  Hurry!  TBI volunteers will be delivering on Monday, December 18

BROTHERHOOD CHANUKAH PARTY – The Brotherhood Chanukah Party will be held on Sunday, December 17, 2017 from 11:00am to 1:15pm as we enjoy lunch and are amazed by the magic of Mike McDonald. The cost will be $5.00 per person with a maximum of $20 per household. For additional information, please contact the Temple Office.




A Centennial birthday is a big deal and certainly should be celebrated.  The leadership of Temple Beth Israel has been working on engaging programs and amazing ideas that honor our past and look towards our future, complete with a birthday party on January 31, 2018.  For more details about the year’s upcoming special events, please see a Centennial Torah at TBI for a full calendar.
