Multiple Megillah Readings Outdoors in the TAIS Shomron Gardens to be Livestreamed on YNET and on FB LIVE of TLV Municipality & TAIS!!

It’s hard to imagine that just a year ago, Purim was our last normal event, although already scaled down due to the pandemic.  This year, we cannot host the thousand plus crowd that flock to attend our Annual Festive Megillah Reading and Purim Celebration.

However, the show must go on!  And we are excited to share that our Festive Megillah Reading will reach tens of thousands this year!  It will be broadcast nationally on YNET and will be the official broadcast reading of Tel Aviv’s municipality on FB LIVE!

We will hold multiple outdoor readings in the garden within the restrictions of the lockdown (20 men and 20 women per reading) as well as inside with the Green Pass guidelines.  Purim Megillah Readings 2021

The Passing of our Senior Gabbai, Yehuda Bareli z”l

With great sorrow and a heavy heart, we regret to inform you of the passing of the dear senior gabbai and treasurer of our synagogue, Yehuda Bareli z”l.  Yehuda dedicated the past 30 years to the synagogue, was instrumental in supporting its revival and was a pillar of our community. He recently dedicated a Torah scroll as part of our Torah Restoration Project.

His dear wife, Sarah, passed away 4 months ago to the day. Yehuda was 93 years old and will be sorely missed.
