Some Important Changes This Year         

Mishkan HaNefesh Prayer Book
We are delighted to be using the Reform movement’s new High Holy Day prayer book, Mishkan HaNefesh, this year. This book is a valuable tool for innovation in our Rosh HaShana  and Yom Kippur experience. The language in the books is modern and accessible, with gender neutral wording and all Hebrew prayers available in transliteration. There are inspired alternative options, a variety of study commentaries throughout the book, Torah reading options, and some magnificent new prayer alternatives.
Mishkan HaNefesh follows the format and style of Mishkan T’filah, which we have been using successfully on Shabbat for a number of years. Changing to the new High Holy Day books helps us unify our worship throughout the year, drawing our worship community closer.

Festival Service Times moved to 10:30 am
We have changed the times our Sukkot, Simchat Torah and Shemini Atzeret services begin. These services will now begin at 10:30 am. The Second Day Rosh Hashana service will still begin at 10:00 am.

TBK High Holy Day Food Drive

Fulfill the Mitzvah of feeding the hungry – ha’achlat re’evim.
Remember to bring non-perishable food items for the food carts! Food collected will be distributed to replenish local food pantries which desperately need our help.

High Holy Day Appeal

The word Hineni indicates far more than declaring that one is “present.” Hineni has a covenantal tone: I am truly here. I am ready to do my share. I am prepared to respond to whatever needs may arise.

Last year, we implemented a High Holy Day Appeal for the first time in many years. It was very successful and helped make it possible for TBK to close out Fiscal Year 2016-17 in healthy financial shape. As we move into the financial uncertainties of 2017-18, with our facilities in need of repair and our hopes to sustain diverse programming, we need your support. Your donation will make a positive difference in the lives of TBK members and in our larger community through the important works we support.

At the start of a New Year, all of us, from long-time members to new faces, TBK guests and visitors, have the ability to enhance the light and heighten the joy and strength of our community in the coming months. We hope that many of you will answer the call and say “Hineni!” this year. Thank you so much for your generosity.
