Tuesdays at 6:30pm
Refuat HaNefesh Healing Service

A new prayer gathering to be held each and every Tuesday evening in the Sidney Eisenberg Chapel. This service enables our members who are in mourning or observing a Yahrzeit to join with their TBE family for a 30 minute service filled with prayer, song and quiet moments of reflection to recite the Mourner’s Kaddish.  In recognition of our diverse TBE family, the service is a fusion of prayers both in Hebrew and English. We use the weekday prayer book, Siddur Et Ratzon, which has all the Hebrew transliterated for the non-speaker, and beautiful (and relevant) explanations of the intentions behind the prayers. So, mark your calendars and let's share this lovely service and ongoing Mitzvah project together.

*Oneg is a time for the community to come together and visit, with savory eats!

6am Shavuot Sunrise Services
at the synagogue AND at the beach…you pick!

On the Beach - Divers Cove, Laguna Beach
Stair access to the beach is at the north end of Heisler Park
followed by blintzes and brunch at a congregant’s home near the beach
Optional: bring a bathing suit and towel if you’re interested in the group ocean mikva. There is a teaching that the Jewish people married God and Mount Sinai was held above them as a chuppah/wedding canopy, and the Torah is our ketubah/wedding document. In this spirit, those interested jump into the ocean as a mikva/ritual bath in preparation to enter into the holy covenant with God. We raise a chuppah on the beach and read the Ten Commandments as we bind ourselves to God and our tradition. It is a great experience you don’t want to miss…even if you skip the ocean dip.
