What's happening at TBE

High Holidays Wrap Up

Thank you to everyone who contributed so meaningfully to our High Holiday observances. We appreciate the work of the High Holiday Committee, the Board, the Covid Task Force and all who helped out by singing, reading Torah and Haftarah, sounding shofar, hosting shofar services, leading the service and more. A special thank you Dawn for her tireless work to make these holidays successful. It was wonderful to celebrate with all of you.


Civic Engagement

We at TBE are committed to making sure we vote and encouraging others to do so as well. If you still have your absentee ballot, drop it off. Do not mail your ballot! Tuesday is your day to vote!


Voted already? Temple member?  Let us know! We have a competition with Congregation Beth Israel in Bath (see more here) and we want to win. We are hoping for 100% voter participation!

the sanctuary renovation is complete

We have been busy at the Temple! We had a wonderful celebration on Saturday, November 23rd for our first Shabbat in the new building. The stained glass window and landscaping was completed in July. We now have our first art show hanging in the lobby! 
Want to see more pictures? Here are some pictures of the building from this summer. Click here for pictures from our move.
