The Judaica Shop at Temple Beth Israel is Open!
The Judaica Shop has a new selection of tallitot (prayer shawls) for men and women. Are you considering a purchase of a tallit for a member of your family? Make an appointment to shop for tallit by contacting Denise Gubman at claremontcat4@ca.rr.com. You may also come to the Judaica Shop during the Browse and Shop Hours, Wednesdays 2 to 4 pm. Note: TBI COVID-19 guidelines regarding masking and vaccination will be observed when visiting the Judaica Shop. 

PLEASE NOTE: We want to remind you that all TBI sponsored interactive online events on ZOOM now require a password in order to participate. This does not affect the opportunity to view Zoom gatherings that we share on our regular or preschool Facebook pages or that are streamed on Facebook directly. In addition, all those calling in on their phones and not using the Zoom app will be asked to identify themselves by a host.  We also now require that anyone joining on Zoom through a computer or app, whether you have activated a camera or not, must identify themselves clearly with their name displayed.  Those wishing to  join Zoom events by cellphone or landline without using an app or program can still do so, but must request password prior to accessing by an email to cantor@tbipomona.org.We look forward to sharing the events above with you and your family.
