Harvey Morgenstein Mitzvah Day is TBE's annual opportunity to engage, as a Temple, in serving the larger communities in which we live. Our multiple activities will provide ample chances to engage with projects of interest. Come one, come all, for the sacred mission of mitzvot.

Mitzvah Day is a TBE community-wide event that engages participants through acts of mitzvot and Tikkun Olam in various ways throughout our community. The program this year will begin with a Zoom orientation and will include this year's Heart of Mitzvot Award. Following this presentation, folks will then engage in either virtual or socially distant in-person mitzvah projects.

Come hear from TBE's Director of Education and Family Programming, Dan Berman, as he shares his background in Jewish Education and philosophy on engaging children and families. Born and raised in NY in a Reform Jewish Household, Dan attended Boston University, where he was named Mr. School of Education in 2004 and was a member of the Jewish a capella group, Kol Echad. He completed his M.Ed. at Vanderbilt and worked as the only male infant teacher in Nashville. Following a move to Tampa Bay in 2007, Dan served as Director of Education of the JCC Preschool in Tampa and is the Past President of the Pinellas Chapter of the National Association for the Education of Young Children. Outside of work, Dan enjoys helping others, listening to music and watching the water.

After being inspired by Dan’s talk about the creativity and exciting Jewish learning that is going on within our building, why is it that most of us, when younger, opted to avoid ‘Religious School’ whenever possible? The title stems from Marjorie’s parental granting of her personal childhood laze and not learn. But, in Marjorie’s opinion, laze can offer many exciting opportunities, resulting in expanding horizons! Thoughts? Opinions? Experiences? Come and participate in our SAGE community and bring your friends.

MARJORIE FRIEDMAN earned an MA from the University of Florida in Communications and Paralinguistics. Her work in Language Acquisition and Cross Cultural Understanding has taken her to New York, Florida, California, the Bahamas, Laos, Mongolia, Afghanistan and Iraq. She has also taught both yoga and sensuous vegetarian cooking. She is currently a licensed Fortune Teller (crystal ball) and an active TBE member. She is part of our SAGE Programming Committee – so what could be bad?!!!

After more than 40 years, women rabbis are no longer a unique phenomenon; rather,
they are part of the fabric of Jewish life. While noting the historic significance of women in the
rabbinate, there are still so many issues related to both the professional and personal lives of
female rabbis we need to explore.

Registration is required before April 20. Registration will be open AFTER March 29. 

Thank you to our sponsor, MASKUP ST PETE!

Got your vaccine? Ready to meet back in-person for a brief Shabbat service? We are opening our campus at least once-a-month for a limited in-person, masked, socially safe, outdoor 30-minute Shabbat service! As time goes we will increase this number more and more! Our in-person Shabbat service will be limited to 25 worshippers total. Registration per "pod" will be required and is on a first-come-first-served basis. If all 25 spots are filled for the 6pm service, an additional in-person service will begin at 7pm for the next 25 registrants. You are not able to specify a time when registering and will be notified within the week before service so you can make plans to attend. We will have a waiting list in case there are cancellations. A COVID-19 Waiver and Symptoms Check will be required within 24 hours of arrival for each person. We ask that you bring your own chair, mask, water (if desired) and be prepared to have your temperature taken. COVID vaccination is not required but strongly encouraged! Water fountains will not be available during this time but restrooms will be!

The LIVE service will still be streamed at 6pm for those on the waitlist or those who would like to continue to participate from the comfort of their home.
