Welcome to TABI
TABI is More than Just a House of Worship. We are a vibrant and caring congregational family. As a holy community, we learn together, pray together, and care about each other.
We are an inclusive Jewish community where all congregants matter, are inspired to action through Jewish values, and experience Judaism in a meaningful way.
Rabbi Mazo is a native New Englander. He was born in Massachusetts, raised in Connecticut, worked in New Jersey and Cape Cod before accepting the position as Rabbi in Evansville.
Rabbi and Gloria have six children and four grandchildren located from coast to coast. When the Rabbi has free time, he is an avid bike rider and plays the piano, guitar and Mandolin.
I joined TABI nearly a decade ago coming from the Owensboro Temple. TABI members welcomed me when I started attending services and within a short time I realized I had found a new spiritual home. Over time my involvement with the synagogue has grown and I now find myself Fisrt Vice President, the Ritual Committee chair, and regularly playing guitar, as well as singing, on the bimah. During my short stay with this congregation I have seen TABI adapt and grow to meet the needs of our community and our times. I look forward to continuing help shape and guide TABI.
