March 21, 2024 – TABI Announcements

​​​​​​​Tzedakah Committee Update
We hope your year is off to a great start, and that 2024 will ultimately be a wonderful one for all of us. 
Sadly, because of housing and food deficits, it won’t be that for all or many. Since Tzedakah is a central tenant of Judaism, our new committee (replacing the EJCC) had hoped that TABI membership might be able to benefit Israel and our greater Evansville community.
Doing so adds commitment to our commandment and displays the generosity of the Jewish community right here at home.
Frankly, we were disappointed in the year end response, and hoped that we could ‘sweeten the overall pot’ before we allocate these critical funds at an upcoming meeting.  
Because  this was our first year in operation we felt that we had budgeted conservatively in hopes of raising $25,000 or more. At this writing, we are $10,000 short of that goal with fewer than 20 congregants participating.  
As we plan TABI’s distributions for much needed humanitarian aid at home and in Israel, we would like to resolicit participation as  the need for just the basics continue to grow. 
Thank you to those who participated in our initial ask and to all who are inclined to still participate.  Please consider the vast needs and mail your check to the Temple office at your earliest convenience.    
Thank you for you consideration.  
B’ Shalom, the Tzedakah Committee
Library Project: please excuse the mess in the library as we work on revitalizing the space. Should you have any questions please contact Caitlin Haskins.

Family Game Night at TABI – Saturday, April 13th at 5:00PM
Let’s shake off the winter blues and spring into party mode!  Bring your favorite game & appetizer or dessert and join us at TABI for a night of friendly competition and fun!  Pizza and beverages will be provided but please bring an appetizer/snack or dessert.  We will have game tables for kids and adults.  If you have a favorite game, please be prepared to be the “game master” for that table.  

Women’s Torah Study-
​​​​​​​TABI is excited to announce the restarting of the Women’s Torah study beginning at the beginning with B’reishit. Join fellow congregants as we bring the women of the Torah into the limelight and bring women’s perspectives into the interpretation of our sacred text. 
These “lay lead” study sessions will be held before Saturday morning services, allowing us to bring new perspectives and enriching the discussions during regular Shabbat services.
April 6:  Sh’mini
May 4:  Acharei Mot
Thank you to those who have helped restock the grocery and gas cards for our Give One Take One program. We can always use more, so please think of those who are in the need the next time you go to the store or the gas station and perhaps pick up one $20.00 card to donate. The baskets are located on the wall next to the Rabbi’s office.



We received our shipment of Blue Ribbons as part of the #BlueRibbonsforIsrael campaign. Ribbons are in the temple office and available on a first come first served basis. They will also be available on Shabbat. 
You can read about other ways you can participate in this campaign at this site:
Let’s all pray that each and every hostage is released safely and soon.

For the past many years, our worship has been streaming on LiveStream.
Each week, a link is created and sent out via email and our “channel” is also accessible via our website. Livestream and Vimeo have merged, and they are doing away with “basic” plans like ours. The cost to continue our service is now prohibitive.
For the foreseeable future, our service will now stream on the TABI Facebook
