What are Interest Groups?

At TBT, one of the ways that we help people connect to their community is through shared intrests. There are so many ways to get involved with fellow congregants, as you study Torah or Jewish History and culture, grow beautiful produce for Hopelink in our garden, play games in our Mah Jongg or “Chosen Meeple” groups, sing with the choir, or find another way to get people engaged with each other. If you’re interested in something – and you don’t see it here – feel free to get in touch below and we’ll help you get it going!

Sisterhood

The mission of the Sisterhood of Temple B’nai Torah is to build connections between the women of Sisterhood to each other and, in turn, the Temple, our community and the world-at-large, as part of Women of Reform Judaism.  We achieve this goal by providing opportunities for spiritual, social and intellectual growth. 

Lay-Led Torah Study

Meets at 9:00am in the Library every Saturday year-round to discuss the Torah portion being read at services that day. The choice of a translation and commentary is up to each participant. The discussion emerges organically!

Jewish History Chavurah

The History Chavurah is a self organized study group focusing on Jewish history and cultural aspects of our Jewish journey. We examine education, economics, governance, women's role, religious beliefs and rituals, and culture throughout key historical events. We primarily use histories written around the time of an event we are studying and archeological texts, with the Tanakh as a supplement. Each topic is self-contained so people joining now can jump right in. We try to make available selected overview material or potential sources to review prior to each discussion. While individuals do step forward and lead selected sessions, we ask that all participants prepare and bring their own perspectives to each study session. We generally meet on weekday evenings at 7:00pm. Contact Jeannie Moskowitz at jwmoskowitz@yahoo.com for more information.

Mitzvah Corps

Mitzvah Corps is an all volunteer group made up of fabulous folks from the Temple community! We help our fellow members and their families in all sorts of wonderful ways. We may visit a homebound senior or pick up groceries for an ailing member. We might call a member who is recovering from surgery or drive someone to services. we sometimes even provide a couple of hours of childcare for a family in need. Some of us have drive a TBT member to a medical appointment because they were not well enough to drive themselves. There are all kinds of ways to help out, and you can give a little or give a lot. It's up to you. A little help can make a big difference in someone's life. Furthermore, if you need help yourself, be sure to call the Temple office so we can connect you with the help you need.

Mah Jongg

The mah jongg group usually meets every Monday from 1-3pm at Crossroads. The focus is on enjoying the game and each other's company. Players attend as avaialble, and the group is coordinated by email. To be placed on the list (as dates may vary depending on people's schedules), contact Barby Cohen at cohenhead1@mac.com.
