Zoom, Zoom, Zoom!

From  Rabbi Naomi
Zoom, zoom, zoom!  What a holiday season it is! I was deeply touched that so many TBE members are setting aside the time to sit in front of computer screens to celebrate the ancient holidays with 21st century technology! Wonder of wonders! It was heartwarming to see your faces, hear your voices and learn from your insights.

Tisha B’Av 2020: Jews Say Free Them All

TBE Board votes to co-sponsor Tisha B’AV Vigil for Immigrant Rights.

This year on Tisha B’Av (July 29-30), Temple Beth El will be joining the Union for Reform Judaism, together with T’ruah, HIAS, J Street, National Council of Jewish Women, Bend the Arc, Torah Trumps Hate, and the Reconstructionist Rabbinical Association in a vigil to commit ourselves to taking action on behalf of immigrants whose health, livelihoods, and physical safety are under siege. We ask Jews to cry out and say that we must free all immigrants in detention.
