From the Program Director

April was a busy month at TBI from our Men’s Club Shabbat Passover dinner which honored Bernie Allmayer the Men's Club Man of the Year, and Pam, David & Aryeh Kuperstein the Morris Cohen Religious Award, along with great food and inspiring services.  Thank you to all the Men’s Club volunteers for making it so successful.  Many congregants were able to join Cantor Shammash and Rabbi Woodward along with our confirmation class at the Leonard Bernstein Exhibit at The National Museum of American Jewish History this month. We hope all those who went enjoyed the exhibit.

We hope you had the opportunity to hear Elisa Mindlin speak on Yom Hazikaron about her brother Michael Levin. We are so grateful to her for coming to TBI and sharing Michael’s story. April ended with our 18th Annual MS Walk in Phoenixville with our team leaders Jill and Scott Sherman. We hope everyone had the chance to walk and support this important cause.

As we head into the end of the program year and dream of long summer days, May still brings many awesome programs that you don’t want to miss.
