Temple Beth El has a rich history of grass roots community development. Join the conversation led by TBE’s Jim Friedman and Jene Jones, who will look back on the inception of chavurot, and at other community programming that has developed here through the past decades. Where we are now? What is on the horizon in the Jewish and greater Tacoma faith communities?
We will consider how chavurot came to be, their original purpose, the variations that developed, and how decades of friendship have enriched the lives of many current and past temple members. The dialogue will then turn to other efforts at building community. When Jene taught weekday Gan and Sunday school, adopted bubbes and zaydes were paired with our children. Jim will give an overview of current opportunities available at Temple Beth El (such as our Meet, Greet and Bon Appétit dinners), which are inclusive and connect around common interests in order to build k’hilah.
Your involvement in creating ideas for the next generation of community development programming will be the final, but most essential, part of this presentation.
