Good Deeds Day: Sunday, May 6, 10 AM

TBT will be celebrating Good Deeds Day by coming together to do hands-on volunteer projects, from preparing our Mitzvah Garden to produce food for the local food bank, cooking dinner for Tent City 4 and supporting our veterans in a meaningful way. If you would like to volunteer, please contact Donna Blankinship. You can also bring school supplies and peanut butter to donate for those in need.

Graduation Shabbat: Friday, May 18, 7:30 PM

Come and join our graduating seniors at TBT on May 18 as they participate in services and share their future plans with us. As it states in Pirkei Avot, we are all responsible for one another.  

Hearts & Hammers: Saturday, May 19

Every spring, volunteers from Temple B’nai Torah join members of our Covenant Community churches as well as the local mosque to help homeowners in the Crossroads area with home and garden projects. Would you like to help? Volunteers do not need any special skills, just a desire to spend a few hours helping elderly and disabled members of our community. Older children are welcome to help, as long as they will be supervised by their parents. For more information, or to volunteer, please contact Donna Blankinship. You can also bring school supplies and peanut butter to donate for those in need.

Tikkun Leil Shavuot: Saturday, May 19, 7 PM
Come join Rabbi Lipper and Cantor Serkin-Poole for TBT’s Tikkun Leil Shavuot, an evening-long study session held on the night of Shavuot, Saturday, May 19, beginning at 7 PM.Tikkun means a “set order” of something and refers to the order in which the texts are read. The custom originated with the mystics of Safed in the 16th century, and today, many Jews stay up all night on Shavuot reading and studying a variety of sacred texts.
Our goal this year is to engage in a dialogue of personal and communal study to find the 10 most significant verses in the Torah.  We should each bring our lists and then we will together, look at, dissect and rank the collection of verses that we feel are the most significant.  
We will celebrate Havdalah and explore some of the beautiful verses of the Akdamut. The Akdamut is a prominent piyyut (“liturgical poem”) recited annually on Shavuot. It was penned by Rabbi Meir bar Yitzchak (Nehorai) of Orléans, who was a cantor in Worms, Germany, (died ca. 1095). Akdamut consists of praise for God, Torah and Israel.
TBT Annual Meeting: Saturday, May 19, 7 PM

Mark your calendars for the 49thAnnual Meeting of TBT, Wednesday May 30, 2018 at 7:00pm.  Come join us as we review the past year, elect new officers and Board members, and celebrate the many volunteers that make TBT great. And don’t forget our annual tradition of ice cream at the end!
