Congregatings (formerly TBKers)

The Congregatings (formerly known as the TBKers) meets twice a month and our programs and current event sessions are open to all!

2nd Thursday of each month:  Current events discussion. at 12:00 noon.  Brown bag lunch at 11:30 a.m. 

4th Thursday of each month:  Lectures by local speakers.  Brown bag lunch at 12:00 noon, program begins at 12:15 p.m.

Congregatings is an important community resource that meets for a lunch and learn session at noon, usually on the fourth Thursday of the month, except when other priorities interfere.  The group has met for over 25 years and in 2016 added a Current Events lunch and discussion on the second Thursday of each month. The Current Events format is for the moderator to bring 1 or 2 subjects for discussion of ~40 minutes followed by topics that the members bring to discuss. Over the years we have addressed many topics in our lunch and learn sessions presented by a diverse group of speakers recently including Ward Stare, Conductor of the RPO, Mark Cuddy, Artistic Director of Geva, Arnie Rothstein, CEO of RBTL, Chris Bensch, Director of Acquisitions of the Strong Museum.

*Brown bag lunches - Please, no pork or shellfish, no mixing of meat and dairy.

Parashat Vayigash

In this Torah portion, Joseph’s brothers refuse to return to Canaan without Benjamin, whom Joseph has falsely accused of theft. Joseph reveals his true identity and invites his brothers to return for their father, Jacob, and bring him and their families to Egypt to live. When they return, Joseph introduces his father to Pharaoh, and, at Pharaoh’s suggestion, the family settles in Goshen, a particularly fertile region of Egypt.
