This Shabbat


Join us for our feastivals on Sundays October 4 and 25, from 1 to 2:30 pm at Temple Beth Israel in Waltham. Come and harvest from our gardens, eat, mingle, listen to music, play music (bring your instrument and sheet music), enjoy summer's bounty firsthand while enjoying the warmth of community.

Sponsored by the TBI Community Project, this feastival is possible because of our synagogue's engagement in social justice through fresh food access work and because of TBI's commitment to healthy living. This Sunday's special feature is our 3 new CSHs (Community Supported Horticulture). All proceeds from the CSHs support Temple Beth Israel's Community Project.

Coats, Hats, and Gloves Drive


We will be gathering donations of hats, coats, and gloves to give to homeless after Sukkot. As we experience the chill of fall's arrival during Sukkot,  a conversation at the Sukkah hop will focus on homelessness.  The collected items will be donated after Sukkot.  Thanks to Shawn and Rachel for organizing this activity.

Kids and Families at TBI

dani nurickLed by Brandeis senior Dani Nurick, our monthly children's service includes singing, storytelling and movement and provides an opportunity to meet other families in the greater Waltham area.  Children join the main service for Adon Olam, and the congregation then enjoys kiddush, challah and a light lunch.  The program is geared for children ages 2-7 but all ages are welcome.

TBI also provides babysitting each Shabbat from 10 am to 12 pm., at which time kids join the congregation for Adon Olam and lunch.
