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.

Antisemitism Finally Hits Home for Me

Antisemitism Finally Hits Home for Me jemerman September 29, 2022

In the many years (57 to be exact) that I have been in an interfaith marriage, I felt somehow removed from antisemitism. I was raised in a Roman Catholic family, and, while there were a few comments from aunts and uncles when I got engaged, it was the 1960s, and I was in love. I believed we would figure it out as we went along.

Rebuilding After the Storms of Life: An Interview with Rabbi Joseph Meszler

Rebuilding After the Storms of Life: An Interview with Rabbi Joseph Meszler jemerman September 22, 2022

We sat down with Rabbi Joseph Meszler, author of "The Sukkah in the Storm: A Sukkot Story," to discuss the ways this story teaches children about strength, resilience, community, and asking for help.

Keeping Family Close, Regardless of Distance

Keeping Family Close, Regardless of Distance jemerman September 21, 2022

As I boarded the plane to Israel in the summer of 2002 for my first year of rabbinical school at HUC in Jerusalem, my mother said, "Please, just don't meet an Israeli." As soon as the plane touched down at Ben Gurion airport, I knew that I was home. A few months later, I met that Israeli. From our first conversation, he understood that I was studying to be a rabbi, and I understood that he wanted to live only in Israel.

A Vegan Rosh HaShanah for a Sweet New Year

A Vegan Rosh HaShanah for a Sweet New Year jemerman September 14, 2022

I am vegan because I am Jewish. Everything that led me to a vegan practice came from my childhood where I kept kosher, learned by asking thoughtful questions, and practiced daily rituals like hand washing and reciting brachot that brought intention to aspects of daily life.
