Sukkah Under the Stars!

Enjoy Sukkot Under the Stars

Four days after Yom Kippur we begin the festival of Sukkot, the celebration of the harvest (think Thanksgiving ’cause that’s where we got it from)!

We celebrate all that we have harvested through our introspection and self -reflection, our new beginnings and our letting go. We build a fragile booth, a Sukkah, not unlike the Chuppah the bride and groom stand under as they begin a new life together. As we begin a new year together, the Sukkah reminds us of the fragility of life and that our protection, grounding and strength do not come from the walls around us, but rather from the love and support of friends, family and community and the abundant gifts from our Earth and the Divine Source of Blessings!   — Rabbi Abby

Sukkot is coming!

Help Build and Decorate Our Community Sukkah!

Come join us this Sunday and participate in the awesome Mitzvah of building a Sukkah, connecting us to our past, present and future! We have the frame already standing, all we need are the flimsy walls erected, a roof of natural vegetation (do you have any trees needing to be trimmed back?) that allows the sunshine and the stars to peak through and YOU!   — Rabbi Abby

We’ll start at 11:00 and order some lunch after we finished our Sukkah!.

TBE Hammonton
Wear comfy clothes, bring vegetation to hang or to cover the shelter, grasses, branches, cornstalks, flora, step stools, work gloves.

The Roof Covering: The sukkah needs to be covered with sechach—raw, unfinished vegetable matter. Common sukkah roof-coverings are: bamboo poles, evergreen branches, reeds, corn stalks, narrow strips (1×1 or 1×2) of unfinished lumber, or special sechach mats

Model Passover Seder

April 2, 2017   4:30 PM

Please join us as we celebrate together.  Members, friends and guests are welcome.  Our model seder is the most wonderful of the many events we share as a community.  We all help, we all learn.  Our recreation hall is always full.  Together we relive the event that forged the Jewish people into a nation, and by doing so we grow together.  Every family brings a dish to share.  Each family brings their own beverage, including wine if you desire.  Since the model seder does not take place during Passover, kosher wine is optional.  We keep kosher style at TBE, so no lobster tails.  For the model seder, of course, we avoid all bread, pasta, grain products and dairy as meat will be served.
