Light Labyrinth Walk Together Wed 12/1 5:30pm

Join us on the TBS campus as we welcome the fourth night of Hanukah. As we kindle the hanukiyah and remember the miracles of this season, we walk a labyrinth of light to focus our steps and reflect on our journey. It is a simple walk with lots of ways to consider how we move through our world and carry light on our way. Our Hebrew school students and members of the interfaith community will be participating with us.

COVID-19 Safety Policy

Updated 5/18/2022

UPDATE 5/18/2022: As we witness an increase in community spread of Covid 19, the TBS Board of Trustees is encouraging those who attend events or services with 5 or more people to wear masks. As a reminder if you are sick please attend our services or programs by Zoom. We endeavor to be as safe as possible even as we continue to gather and enjoy each other’s company. Thank you for your patience and cooperation.

On campus and TBS activities and events, masks are optional for all fully vaccinated attendees. Medical experts continue to assert that masks greatly mitigate our risks of contracting and/or spreading COVID19 and we encourage anyone who wants to wear a mask to still do so.

If you test positive for COVID19, we ask that you not come to our building for ten days from the day you test positive.
 
If you have been exposed to someone with COVID but have not tested positive yourself, we ask that you wear a mask at all times at TBS and take a COVID test on day five of your exposure to make sure you remain negative.
 
This is also a good time to remind you that for any and all respiratory illnesses we ask that you please stay home.
 
As the weather continues to get warmer, as we are no longer requiring masks, we will now be able to eat inside when necessary.

If you have any questions regarding the COVID-19 safety policy, please contact contact our office 772-569-4700 or email tbsoffice@tbsvero.org.

In this season, time is immutable. It can be questioned, but not changed. Family can be understood, but not altered. The self, in this case, the result of intergenerational trauma, must be accepted. In Russian Doll, the only way to see the good in the world is to stop looking back, to stop journeying inward, and to the wake up in the present.
