Night in the Tropics

On Saturday, June 25, over 70 people put on leis and TBE sunglasses for a beautiful night under the tent on our terrace, listening to the steel drum music of Toco Beach Steelpan. We enjoyed poke bowls generously donated by our neighbor restaurant Miko Poke, and we moved on to ice cream generously donated by Chocolate Shoppe. Linda Berman’s homemade chocolate fudge topped off the delicious frozen treats. We were moved by Cantor Jacob Niemi’s thoughtful Havdalah service from the National Council of Jewish Women titled “After Roe: A Havdalah Ritual for Losing Abortion Access.” After pausing for personal reflection, we enjoyed each other’s company in a casual, fun atmosphere—just what we needed at the end of a Shabbat that was troubling for many of us.
 
Thank you to all staff and volunteers who made this night possible. We were pleased to raise more than $1,200 for TBE programs and services.
