June helps us finish out the fiscal year, tie up any loose ends, and have the committees back in action to plan for what's to come. As the calendar gets finalized, school will end for the year, camps will begin, and many congregants will make their way down the shore for the weekend, or even go on vacation. As for us, we are here gearing up for next year by creating, planning, implementing, and cleaning, to prepare for whenever you would like to stop by just to say hello, attend a service, or participate in a class. Remember, there is still a lot going on at a synagogue, even in the summer time. Why we have at least two opportunities for you to join us for a special service this summer. Shabbat in the Park is happening on Friday, July 21 & August 25, 2017, at The Gazebo in Wentz Run Park. The program starts at 5pm with a B.Y.OP. D. (bring your own picnic dinner) and service at 6pm. Bring a blanket or chairs and join us for this wonderful service under the beautiful setting sky. Following services, watermelon will be served!
Now that it's summer we have started putting together all of the amazing events we have for the upcoming Fall. So now let me get you excited for some of what is in store for next year. We kicked off the 5777 year by having our Annual Shabbat BQ, which will take place again this upcoming Fall on September 8, 2017, hosted by our brand new One Justice Committee. It's the best Shabbat BQ in Blue Bell where we all come back together to begin participating the wonderful festivities and programs for 5778. It's the largest TBI reunion of the year as everyone gets reacquainted with one another, catches up about what has happened over the summer, and eats a delicious selection of BBQ'd meats. Religious school is back in action September 10, followed-up by a TBI YOUth kick-off event Movies and Marshmallows outside the courtyard. Here we will watch, eat, and meet together with our Kadima and USY members. Keep a look out for membership packets and a calendar of events coming to you in July for everything happening with next year's TBI YOUth: USY, Kadima, Kadima Jr, and more! Also, any incoming 7th-12th grader looking for a great end to their summer, then check out Kadima/USY Encampment, August 20-27, at Lake Como in the Poconos. It'll be a week to remember!
Until then, hope to see you at as many events as you are able to attend. Or if you're unable to attend, simply stop by and say hi whenever you're in the building, as it's always wonderful seeing the lovely faces that make us TBI! Hope you are having a wonderful summer!
Sending hugs and smiles your way everyday!
