Wednesday Lunch and Learn

Hand in Hand

This is the video from the lunch and learn on 3/3/2021

The School where Arabs and Jews Learn Side by Side
Wednesday, March 3, 12 noon
In Israel, Jews and Arabs live in separation, fear and violence.
Hand and Hand is on a mission to change that.

Come zoom in to learn about the unique school system in Israel, kindergarten through grade 12, whose student body is 50% Jewish and 50% Arab. They learn Hebrew AND Arabic, while making friends and learning about each other. Starting with only 50 children in 1998, Hand in Hand now has seven campuses and thousands of Jewish and Arab students. Israel’s fastest growing, integrated social movement impacts over 10,000 people every day, proving that we can live together as Jews and Arabs, Israelis and Palestinians.

Temple Beth Torah is honored to have guest speakers that include staff from the school as well as two alumni students, one Jewish and one Arabic, who both spent their childhood and teen years at a school that encourages peaceful coexistence. When today’s children learn peace, honor and respect, can they grow into adult leadership that promotes those values? Come learn about a school that is working to accomplish this very important mission.

Zoom invitations will be sent in updates to those on our email list and can be forwarded to other interested parties.  Others should contact admin@tbthumble.org to obtain the link. For more information about Hand in Hand, visit their website at www.handinhandk12.org.

Virtual Shabbat! – Every Friday Night

Dear Friends –
We can stay connected on Shabbat while remaining safe. Thanks to the magic of technology, Temple Beth Torah will host a short Shabbat gathering beginning at 7 PM each Friday evening. It will be easier than you think…but a learning experience for all of us. You can access with a computer, tablet or cell phone.

Please check your TBT Weekly News email to find the “Join the Zoom Meeting” link, with this you will be connected to the TBT service. Rabbi Dan Gordon is the host. If you have a camera on your device, we’ll be able to see you, too, and you’re free to turn on or off the video. You will be able to have your microphone muted to eliminate distracting noises that may be in your home, and un-mute when you wish to sing along or say something. Again, this is new to all of us, so come enjoy a way to gather and be together this Shabbat. If you need help or to request the Zoom login information please email admin@tbthumble.org

If missed it or would like to watch our live Shabbat again, you can find them on Youtube on Rabbi Dan’s channel. Recording of our live Zoom on Friday evenings.
