Welcome from TBI President

Mike StarkmanTemple President, Mike Starkman, the Temple  Board, and members invite you to learn more about our congregation. We currently conduct Lay Led Services once a month and have a Rabbi to lead us during the High Holy Days. Our services are normally the second Friday evening of the month but our schedule is published on this website. The Shabbat service is normally preceded by a communal Shabbat pot luck dinner.  The entree (usually roast chicken) is provided by a congregant and attendees are encouraged to bring a side dish, dessert, or beverage to share. Pease join us for Shabbat dinner at 6:00 pm if your schedule allows, or just for the 7:00 pm service. On Saturday of this weekend at 12 pm we conduct a Lunch & Learn. Bring your lunch and join the discussion on the parshat of the week or another topic of religious importance. Later that day Havdalah is celebrated at sundown. Get full details of TBI Upcoming Events to the right or visit our Calendar page. We encourage you to share these pages with friends and family.
