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

Parashat Vayetzei

In this Torah portion, Jacob has a dream in which angels go up and down a ladder connecting earth to heaven. God appears before Jacob and renews the covenant that God had made with Abraham. Jacob sees Rachel, Laban’s daughter, tending sheep and wishes to marry her. Laban tricks Jacob into marrying his eldest daughter, Leah, after seven years of labor. In exchange for another seven years of work, Jacob is allowed to marry Rachel. Jacob has many sons with Leah, but Rachel is unable to conceive. Finally, God blesses Rachel, and she has a son, whom she names Joseph.
