HOW WE SUPPORT THE LAKES REGION
The goal is to give our members the opportunity
to not only “be” Jewish, but to “do” Jewish.
- In 2013 the TBI commitment to Tikkun Olam was expanded with the creation of the We Care Committee which has donated over $100K to several different Lakes Region non-profit organizations through the We Care Concert series. The TBI We Care team hires the talent, contracts the venue, coordinates the logistics, creates an aggressive marketing program, and oversees the performance for each event, allowing the beneficiary to relax and enjoy the show and the rewards. The entire net proceeds of each concert are returned to the selected beneficiary for that concert. Learn more about the next WE CARE event
- The Ritual Committee endorses a Mitzvah Project requirement for B’nai Mitzvot.
- The Building Committee ensures that our building is handicap accessible.
- The Social Action Committee continually apprises the temple community of ways to reach the disenfranchised and creates opportunities for members to participate as caring volunteers in these efforts.
- The Religious School annually gleans the four corners of the fields and prepares soup for the Salvation Army lunches and students visit the New Hampshire Veterans home.
- Volunteers regularly provide Salvation Army lunches and volunteer a community based meal known as “Hands Across the Table.”
- The temple community collects non-perishable food items for a Yom Kippur food drive.
- The temple is represented on the Spiritual Care Committee at the Lakes Region General Hospital and at the Greater Laconia Ministerial Association.
- TBI is part of the Interfaith Thanksgiving services program, periodically hosting these services
- TBI is an active participant in Laconia’s Multicultural Day.
