Upcoming Events at TBS

Today is Wednesday August 20, 2014
Special Events over the Next month:

Sun Aug. 24 4:30 - 5:45 pm Pirkei Avot study session
Pirkei Avot is a tractate of the Mishnah dedicated to statements of ethical principles.

Bringing your own text is not required, but is definitely invited and encouraged. For further information, please contact Peter Squires (ritual at tremontstreetshul dot org).


 
 
Full Calendar over the Next few weeks:
Wed 20 8:30 - 9:30 pm 20s30s Ice Cream Outing
I scream, you scream, we all scream (metaphorically, of course...) for ICE CREAM! Join the Tremont St. 20s&30s to fill your ice cream cravings with a (buy-your-own, kosher) trip to J.P. Licks in Davis Square, Somerville, directly across from the Somerville Theatre. If there's interest, we'll continue the fun with drinks at a nearby bar. Come for the ice cream, stay for the beer!
