We have many committees our members are invited to join!

  

Member Connections Committee

This group focuses on attracting, welcoming, integrating, engaging, and retaining members of the temple. The group meets approximately once a month, and its members contact people who express an interest in joining the temple, streamline and refine the procedures associated with completing the initial membership application, and plan events to introduce and welcome new members. The committee organizes religious, social, and cultural events throughout the year to strengthen the ties that existing members have to the temple community. 

Caring Circle Committee

This group offers support services to our temple community during periods of illness, isolation, and/or bereavement. Services include assistance with transportation (to temple, doctor’s appointments, etc.); grocery shopping; friendly phone calls; visits to homes, hospitals, rehab centers, or nursing homes; emergency meals; sending caring notes and cards; and other assistance as needed. A list of volunteers is maintained, who are occasionally called upon to provide assistance as needed.  Click here for contact information for the Caring Circle.

The Social Action Committee exists to provide the congregants of Temple B'nai Israel with opportunities to practice Tikkun Olam ("repairing the World") through volunteer opportunities, food drives, and other community activities.  For more information, please contact This email address is being protected from spambots.

Shabbat Services

mikematt

Please join us for Shabbat services led by Rabbi Matthew Zerwekh. On the first, third, and fourth Fridays of each month, Shabbat services begin at 7:00 p.m. On the second Friday  of each month, Shabbat services begin at 6:00 p.m. and are followed by a community potluck meal open to all (October through May) or a shared meal at a local restaurant (June through September).  In months with a fifth Friday, we forego services at TBI and instead gather in members’ homes for a shared Shabbat dinner.

Every Saturday morning, our  our weekly morning Shabbat serviceMinyan Milamed, begins at 10:00 a.m. Check our calendar page for updates. Our Shabbat services are always open to visitors; we invite you to come and experience Temple B'nai Israel!
