Shavuot at TABI:

 Shavuot celebrates both the giving of the law on Sinai as well as the Summer
Barley Harvest in Israel. It is one of our three pilgrimage festivals – one of the
most important holidays on the Jewish calendar. It is traditional to have a night
of study on Erev Shauot – called Leil Tikkun Shavuot. Please plan to join us on

Our Aging Parents, Our Aging Selves
Thursday,  June 13th at 6:00 – 8:00 pm at TABI

Please join our TABI family as we learn, discuss, and support each other as we
learn more about what we can expect as we, our parents, and our loved ones
age.  The two part program will be presented by SWIRCA (Southwest Indiana
Regional Council on Aging).  The first part will include basic information on
SWIRCA and the services provided in the 6 county area.  The second part will
introduce the Demetia Friends initiative.  Dementia Friends is a global movement
that is changing the way people think,  act, and talk about dementia. Developed
by the Alzheimer’s Society in the United Kingdom, the Dementia Friends
initiative is underway in Indiana and across the United States. By helping everyone in a community understand what dementia is and how it affects
families, each of us can make a difference for people touched by dementia.

Please reach out to Elissa if you would like transportation to this discussion.   

Please RSVP to Elissa.

TABI Heritage Map Project is underway!

Where were you born? Are you an Evansville native or a transplant?
Did your grandparents immigrate from another country?

Help us map our collective ancestry by filling out a simple form on our website We will collect the data and everyone
who submits their family history will be represented by pins in beautiful maps
that will hang at TABI as a part of our Library Archive Project. Learn more here
or contact Ed Scharf ( with any questions.

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.


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
