Upcoming Events

G. 6 Yad Making Workshops (Part 1)

Wednesdays, February 1 & 8 (4:30-6pm) – after trop.

All Temple Israel 6th graders are encouraged to attend this workshop with local artist Silvina Mizrahi. Each 6th grader will create a unique and personal yad that they can use anytime they read from the Torah.

Religious School Parents: Please confirm that your 6th grader will be at religious school on both Wednesdays. This is a 2 step process. We hope that everyone will be able to participate and make attending the workshop a priority these weeks.

Day School Parents: Please confirm that your child will be participating so that we purchase materials for them.

G. PK-K-1 Family Program: Tu B’Shvat

Sunday, February 5, 10:30 am-12pm

Join us for a walking, talking, eating, and doing Tu B’Shvat program and birthday party for the trees!

Tu B’Shvat is the “New Year of the Trees.” Originally Tu B’Shvat was an agricultural festival, marking the emergence of spring. Rabbis living in Israel in the 16th century created a ritual for Tu B’Shvat similar to a Passover seder. In contemporary Israel the day is celebrated as an ecological awareness day, and trees are planted.

Rise Against Hunger: Community Mitzvah Program

Rise Against Hunger will be back at Temple Israel on Sunday, Feb. 12th, 2023 at 1pm. This event was incredibly popular the last time (Spring of 2019), and it would be amazing to get the same turnout.
TI has goals this year of raising $9,600 and creating 10,000 packaged meals, both of which will benefit Rise Against Hunger.
Please help by volunteering and/or donating money at the link below.  Please note that every person needs to be registered before attending so if you are a family of 3, each individual does need to be registered. 
Also, for those in the Religious School, there will be a friendly competition where the class with the highest participation will win. Grades 3 and 4 will be combined, so the class numbers are roughly similar.
