Temple B’nai Israel has been the hub of Jewish
activity in central New Hampshire for the past
eighty years. Our congregation is affiliated with Reform Judaism,
however our members’ beliefs and traditions range from traditional
conservatism to modern versions of Reform practice.
We are active participants on the Lakes Region Interfaith Council
of Religious Groups and play a positive role in the community
Due to the ongoing social distancing recommendations with COVID-19, the TBI Board has decided to cancel this Friday’s Plymouth NH Home Shabbat service at the Funk’s, and instead, take advantage of our video conferencing technology to hold a “Virtual Community Shabbat Service” for this Friday night March 20th at 7:30pm. Rabbi Dan and Melody will be leading the service remotely from their homes. For those that would like to socialize ahead of time, the video conference line will be open at 7pm for virtual schmoozing.
We will also hold the Saturday night Adult Ed Session with Rabbi Dan at 7pm via our Zoom Video Conference line. Religious school on Sunday, March 22nd has been cancelled following the local school cancellation policies. We will be in touch with the Religious School families directly regarding plans during this time.
The link to our Friday night online service can be found below. More information on how to use the video conference service on ‘Zoom’ will be included in this Wednesday’s TBI Newsletter. There is also a link below to the online version of our prayer book, Mishkan Tefilah that can be used during services, or anytime. Stay safe and please don’t hesitate to reach out if you have questions or need anything at all. If you would like a one-on-one tutorial from Ira this week, please just send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we can arrange a time to walk you through it.
Thank you for your understanding during this challenging time in our lives.
TBI hosted a very well attended Purim weekend including a Friday night Shabbat service, with a Purim Spiel, short Megillah reading, a program on Israel – A Mix of Cultures by Shlicha Avia Sagron, and an amazing Persian Dinner hosted by our Holiday Committee on Saturday night! Pictures below!
