Important Message from the TBO Office
It is official, summer has arrived and many of you are headed off on wonderful vacations, visits with family, or just will be enjoying the slower, warmer pace of the season. We expect a very busy summer here at TBO. Our sanctuary renovation is under way, in addition to all the annual hard work and preparation it takes to get ready for fall and the High Holy Days.

Again this summer, Chailights will no longer be sent weekly, but as needed throughout the summer. Please check our website and Facebook page for important information. We will be sending out High Holy Day Chailights starting in July.
