Can’s make it on Sunday?

Join us for an early 5:00 pm start to our on-line Friday evening service on August 20th. The service will begin at 5:30, but we will open Zoom early for an informal meeting with the Rabbi and TBI members.


Please note our current practices for meeting in person (subject to change):

  • Because Middlesex County has reached the CDC’s threshold for universal indoor masking, all individuals above the age of two must remain masked when indoors at TBI regardless of vaccination status.
  • No one may approach close to others without first knowing their comfort level with close proximity.
  • At this time, we are not serving food; if that changes, it must be eaten outdoors or at tables set up for social distancing.
