What's Happening at TBE

Help Us Dedicate Our New Building!
Sunday, October 26th

Our congregation has long crammed all of our activities into one wonderful but cramped building. With the renovation and addition of 5 Woodlawn, we have realized the goal of providing adequate space for our religious school, as well as new offices for Rabbi Asch and Nan, a library/conference room, and a new kitchen. Come help us celebrate and, of course, eat!
