Led by Rabbi Kim Ettlinger, this group extends a warm invitation to all women to come along and join a lovely group to meet, chat, learn and celebrate the monthly new moon as so many women in our tradition have done before us. Call the office on 9510 1488 for location.

TBI Film Club – not currently running

One Sunday evening each month, we film-lovers gather in the Friedlander for a screening. We supply the popcorn and chocolates so you can just sit back, enjoy and, if you want, stay and share your thoughts about the film over coffee and cake when the final credits have rolled.
Email Ginny at [email protected] to receive monthly emails detailing screening dates and titles or call our office at 9510 1488 for more information.

Project Dignity

Project Dignity is a Temple Beth Israel initiative that has been formed from seeing Jewish history reflected in the plight of refugees from many nations who have come to Australia as a place of safety from war and persecution. Tikkun Olam (‘repair of the world’) is a Jewish concept which over time has become synonymous with a call for social justice. But as Jews we cannot be involved in ‘repairing the world’ if we do not know and understand the ways in which the world is broken.
