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.
