Shabbes in Upper Remety: Music of the Hollender Family—A Tish with Hankus Netsky (Friday March 1st)
Hankus Netsky will lead a “tish” – (singing around a table) featuring melodies of the Hollender family. This annual event honors the late Morris Hollender, Temple Beth Israel’s long-time baal tefile (prayer leader) and Torah reader, and his wife Edith. Auschwitz concentration camp survivors, the Hollenders came to the Boston area from Czechoslovakia in 1967.
Joining Hankus will be members of New England Conservatory’s Jewish Music Ensemble and congregation members, who will help him lead the singing of unique traditional Eastern European Jewish Melodies that Morris Hollender remembered from his childhood in Upper Remety in the Carpathian Mountains of the Czech Republic, and shared generously with others during his time in the United States.

The Mark Frydenberg Event Participation Fund: TBI wants to ensure that all members of our community can attend any Shabbat or holiday meal, and other TBI events requiring a fee. The Mark Frydenberg Event Participation Fund makes this possible. Below you can choose to pay the standard single, two-person or family fee for Shabbat dinner or a lower amount. If you choose a lower amount, simply note “Event Participation Fund” in the explanation. The fee you choose remains private. The fund was renamed to honor Mark Frydenberg upon the completion of his six years of service as board president, in recognition of the unprecedented progress TBI made in accessibility and inclusion under his leadership.
Friday Evening Special Events
On Friday March 1 we will be holding our annual Tish. Dinner is $20/TBI members and $25 for non-members.
If you wish to use the Event Participation Fund and are paying by check, simply note that it is an “other amount” for the event, on your check. If you are able to pay above the standard fee, we welcome you to do so and we will apply the excess to the Fund. This effort is well-funded, but if at any time it lacks funds we will allow only standard fees at that time.
