Highlight of the Month

Share your story on how you are managing during COVID-19

We will try to share as much as we can!

During these times of upheaval and of possible seclusion, we want to be thoughtful of how we can continue to connect to those in our community. The following was written by Rabbi Yosef Kanefsky of B’nai David-Judea in Los Angeles and I think it is an important sentiment: 

"Every hand we don’t shake must become a phone call that we place. Every embrace that we avoid must become a verbal expression of warmth and concern. Every inch and every foot that we physical place between ourselves and another, must become a thought as to how we might be of help to that other, should the need arise.”

To this end, I want to be sure that we are supporting those in our community during these times when we are not getting together physically. If you are in need of a contact by the synagogue, please fill out this form. And, if you are able to help support someone, please fill it out as well. Click here for the form. 

Our take-out Shabbat meals have been a success!

Be Inspired

Our Rabbi, Michael Werbow, is sure to spark inspiration. Our services are uplifting and steeped in tradition yet are also applicable to our everyday lives.

Participate in Tikkun Olam

Tikkun Olam or "repairing the world" (i.e. social action) has always been important in the Jewish faith. TBS continually works with the Safe Place and Rape Crisis Center through donation drives. We work with All Faiths Food Bank as well and deliver casseroles to the Salvation Army. TBS supports Family Promise as well in providing assistance to homeless families. Reach out to our social action committee for more ways to get involved.

Connect with the Greater Jewish Community

We are proud partners of The United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism as well as The Jewish Federation of Sarasota-Manatee. Additionally, we are part of "Dalet" which is a consortium of several synagogues of all denominations in the area. We collaborate with each of these groups to achieve a tight-knit Jewish community.
