March 2018:

Spring is here, and with it comes a full calendar at TBS. B’nai Mitzvah season is upon us, along with Pesach, The Catskills at TBS, the First Annual Kosher Brisket Challenge and a flurry of events and activities throughout the many arms of the synagogue.

As I do in many of my segments, I encourage every one of you to get involved. Whether it is to attend our annual Second Seder with the Rabbi and many of your friends and neighbors, or to have a weekend in the Catskills like when you were a kid, there is something going on all the time at our synagogue.

We have a variety of speakers, poker night and cooking events. We have upcoming discussions with temple members on books and Israeli short stories. Our Social Action Committee participates in many regular programs and fundraisers that benefit the larger New Haven community. Social Action, Adult Education and many of our other synagogue groups are always eager for new participants and helpers for their programs.

If you are looking for a way to meet some new friends, help those around you, learn something new, or a combination of these then please contact someone from one of these committees. They will be happy to get you involved.
