The TBA cooks joined in the kitchen on Sunday, March 18 to make a delicious meal for The Second Step. They made chicken enchilada casserole, Mexican rice, roasted Mexican zucchini with cotija cheese, jicama salad, chocolate cookies and mint brownies. It sounds absolutely delicious... great job to all involved!
Brotherhood Co-chairs Jeremy Golfarb and Bruce Blakely teamed with Social Justice Co-chair Jeff Tarmy to create a fun way to support the fight against domestic violence on Sunday, March 18, 2018. The first ever TBA Cornhole Tournament was a huge success! Over 35 congregants competed in the tournament while enjoying pizza, beer and March Madness on the big screen! The men and boys in attendance took the White Ribbon Campaign's pledge. The White Ribbon Campaign is a global movement of men and boys working to end male violence against women and girls. Congratulations to father/son tournament winners Michael and Brendan Weissel!
Hi everyone my name is Sabrina. Today we had many experiences, but I was asked to write exclusively about one. Before I write this extremely vulnerable blog post, I feel I want to share with the community my societal views. I am most likely a resemblance of many of your kids, I am your average Jewish girl who attends Newton South.

We had a great and big group of volunteers who came out on this nasty pouring rain day and cooked their hearts out! In addition to a dinner of baked ziti, roasted vegetables, salad and berry crisp for dessert, we were able to bake chocolate chip and oatmeal raisin cookies that TSS will distribute to its residents for snacks. TSS said they love snacks, and home baked cookies are always a hit!
Our volunteers were: Ruth Baylis, Debbie Hart-Klein, Jan and Sydney Lipof, Rae Mintz, Margie Ross Decter, Zack Decter, Liz Tapper, and Suzy Willard and Lila. There was lots of chatting and laughter as everyone cooked, which was good fun. A special shout out to Suzy, Liz and Rea for washing the many pots and dishes we used -- that's always the toughest part.
