Join us on the first Friday of each month for our Shabbat Yeladim (Children's Shabbat). To celebrate Sukkot, we will have dinner by Carrabba’s ($18/family) in the sukkah and a joyful, youthful service with blessings, songs and prayers led by our TBE kids & teens. Following service, during our Oneg in the sukkah and Family Ed Program, we will look ahead to the holidays of Shemini Atzeret and Simchat Torah. We will discuss why Reform Judaism celebrates the two as one holiday, and make our own plush Torahs to take home. Registration for the Pre-neg dinner is required.

Join us for a special Shemini Atzeret-Simchat Torah Yizkor service, especially for those who are mourning the loss of a loved one during the past 12 months.

Get ready to celebrate the joy of Torah on Simchat Torah! First we will enjoy a delicious breakfast provided by our Brotherhood’s Boyz in the Hood. Then we will sing, dance, and unroll the entire Torah around the sanctuary, as well as celebrate the consecration of our Sunday school students beginning their Jewish studies! All ages are welcome to participate in this celebration; we need your spirit!

RSVP IS REQUIRED to to attend either the
2pm at a private home location or the 6:30pm at TBE.

This group defines itself as a sacred circle of women, connecting with each other, while exploring our past, and present experiences and beliefs in a non-judgmental, loving and accepting environment. Topics will include Judaism, women's issues, holidays, and the Torah.

Interested in services under the stars? A chance to escape the city and bond? A special Friday night service will be held
on-site at Camp Margaritaville Auburndale and all are invited to join! Rabbi Jenn Mangold will lead this service as we kick off our annual Family Camping Weekend at this new location! (You do not have to be camping to attend the Shabbat service.)

If you'd rather stay closer to home, you can still meet us at Temple Beth-El for our Erev Shabbat service led by
Rabbi Michael Torop.
