Yard Sale

It’s time to clean out your attic, basement, garage, closets and drawers and find those unused treasures that someone else might want.   

Temple Beth El is having a Yard Sale and your donations will be appreciated to help raise funds for our synagogue. 

“Help is needed for set up at 8:00 AM, manning tables and breakdown at 12 noon.  Tables are available to sell your gently used stuff to FUNdraise for TBE.” –



You are welcome to help set up and sell even if you don’t have any items to contribute.

This is a great time to do some spring/summer cleaning – remember, your junk could be someone else’s treasure.

If you’re not able to join us for the entire day we hope you do have time to stop by, say hi, and SHOP!

Post Passover Pizza Party

“The day after the festivals is known as Isru Chag.  The Chassidic masters teach that fasting is forbidden and festivities are in order.  Join us on Sunday, April 28th for a Post Passover Pizza Party from 4 PM till 6 PM, to celebrate our crossing of the sea together and learn what the Jewish mystics teach of this special time.” – Rabbi Abby Michaleski

We’re making some fun and exciting changes to our Passover celebration this year.  Sunday, April 28th is the day after Passover has ended.  After a long week of matzoh, matzoh and more matzoh, is there a better way to celebrate than with  P I Z Z A !

Anyone joining us on the 28th is asked to bring something fun to eat to share with your TBE family.  Food items suggested are:  drinks, salads, snacks, desserts, and yes –  D A I R Y  items are a must!  Pizza will be provided by TBE and her President, Stephen Schwartz.


We have some  F U N   S T U F F  planned as well – a 50/50 and raffle baskets included.

We hope you’ll join us for “a slightly different spin” to our Temple Beth El Passover celebration this year.

Note:  There is no charge for Friends or Members of TBE.  Donations are graciously accepted.  (Suggested non-member donation:  $10 per person.)

RSVPs are not necessary.  If you have any questions please email Steve .

Purim Celebration

PURIM IS COMING! And, it’s a Big Megillah, too!

Join us for the celebration!

Purim – our Jewish version of Mardi Gras – is fast upon us and you are cordially invited to join us, as we celebrate the 3 F’s – FUN, FOOD & FRIVOLITY!

We encourage everyone to wear an outrageous costume, as we relive the story of Purim – starring The King, Haman and, of course, two queens Esther and Vashti!

A champagne brunch will be served (for consenting adults), but frolickers of ALL ages are urged to attend, to immerse themselves into the story of Purim!

It’s no coincidence that our celebration of Purim, is being held on St. Paddy’s Day, either! So, even if you’re Irish – and urban legend has it that on St. Paddy’s Day EVERYONE is Irish (Faith and Begora 😉 – feel free to bring your lil’ urchins, or, leprechauns, along – to partake in all the fun!

ALSO! celebrity impersonator, Helene Masiko will be appearing as Joan Rivers at our Purim celebration! Helene is an amazing talent.  We’re thrilled to have her entertain us, once again!  

And, don’t forget to please bring some cash, pounds, euros, or, shekels, for a chance to win our 50/50 drawing – to be conducted that day!
