Welcome Spring and Celebrate Freedom

Registration is Open for our Annual Passover Community Seder on Sunday, March 21, 2021 at 2:00 PM. Our Seder will be virtual and, as in years past, we will invite our guests to participate by reading portions of our Haggadah and joining us in singing traditional songs. This year, we encourage participants to prepare a Seder Plate The Seder Plate with ritual foods so that you can fully experience the Seder ritual and help to dramatize the Exodus story and the universal struggle for freedom.

REGISTER HERE

The Passover Seder is the oldest continually practiced ritual in the Western world.  The Exodus story is one of the best known of all stories. We will retell the ancient story of liberation, ask questions, sing songs, search for answers, contemplate oppression and slavery in our own times, and continue our journey toward universal freedom and justice.  We will explore shared traditions and values as we dedicate ourselves, yet again, to working toward a better and more beautiful world.

We have attached an electronic version of this year’s Haggadah – the program book for our ritual.   We invite you to join us in reading the Haggadah. Please indicate your willingness to read and we will assign you a portion. TBI Passover Haggadah 2021

INVITE YOUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS   Since this year’s Seder is taking place online, you can invite family and friends both near and far. Children in California? Cousins in New York? All are welcome!   We hope you will join us on Sunday, March 21 at 2:00 pm.

Participation is free, but donations are always welcome.

We Welcome the New Year With Virtual High Holiday Obervances

We celebrated High Holidays 2020 in virtual, online Zoom services on Sept. 19, 27 and 28, 2020.  At times, over 40 members, friends and guests some from California, Washington state, Tennessee and Bermuda, participated.   Portions were pre-recorded but most of the ritual was live. Former President Norman Berman served as “host” and curated the prayers and readings. Participants read, sang and followed along with a customized online prayer book. Joel Rosenberg blew the Shofar.  Alan Turner and Peter Granoff read the Torah portions and Marty Drobiarz led traditional elements of the services. The Aliyot were awarded in a virtual auction a few days prior to Rosh Hashanah which brought back fond memories and kept alive a time-honored tradition that goes back to the original founders of the Temple.  These innovative services included contemporary poetry, prayers and recordings by Leonard Cohen, Daniel Kahn, Phil Ochs and Metalica, as well as nationally acclaimed cantors and choirs.  The services received enthusiastic reviews from many who attended.
