Celebrating Shabbat at home with family and friends creates a warm and wonderful end to your week. Saying or singing blessings over family, candles, wine and challah helps make it sacred.

Oneg Shabbat Team
At TBI one of the oldest and friendliest of traditions is to end each Friday Night Shabbat Service with a special treat: the Oneg, where we enjoy a literal taste of the sweetness of Shabbat. Oneg Shabbat literally means “the joy of Shabbat” and has also come mean the time of food and fellowship following Shabbat evening services. Oneg providers:
- Perform the mitzvah of hachnasat orchim (welcoming guests);
- Bring the joy of Shabbat to our congregation and;
- Have the opportunity to celebrate Shabbat at TBI.
When you provide Oneg treats, you bring the joy of Shabbat to our congregation, and you have the opportunity to celebrate Shabbat yourself at TBI.
At TBI most Onegs have sponsors such as the B’nei Mitzvah family of that Shabbat. However, about 25 Oneg Shabbats per year do not have sponsors. In order to provide for these unsponsored Onegs TBI members are invited to be a part of a “TBI Oneg Shabbat Team” The Team is emailed when their help is needed, Each team member provides an item or items for the Oneg; each Oneg requires 8-10 trays of desserts and/or vegies and/or fruit. TBI members are invited to join the “TBI Oneg Shabbat Team” by contacting Jim Tanner.
