BT's Blue & White Shabbat

Blue & White Shabbat @ Beth Tfiloh Cong., 5/3, 9 am

This Shabbat will be Blue & White Shabbat at Beth Tfiloh Congregation, in honor of Israel’s 66th birthday. I’ll tell you why “There Are Certain Things You Just Don’t Say! Israel at 66.” Get all the details about Blue & White Shabbat in our Facebook event.
