Immigration Law 101

Join us on Wednesday, August 2 from 7:00pm to 9:00pm at the Temple where TBS Tzedek will proudly host an informative evening sponsored by the organization "Tzedek Reflection" regarding immigration justice.  In order to become the most effective allies to our immigrant neighbors, we need to educate ourselves on the legal and political definitions, distinctions, and administrative procedures that determine the rights and status of different immigrants and refugees living in MA and the Boston area. At this educational forum, you will learn from immigration law experts Gerry Rovner and Aimee Mayer-Salins about the basics of immigration law.  During break out sessions we will explore broader immigrant justice activity in Boston-area congregations. For questions, please contact Beth Pinals at [email protected].  To register, click here.

Age Together

Are you a current or former caregiver for an aging loved one? Do you need recommendations for eldercare resources, are you looking for advice, or do you have information to share?

To help family caregivers at TBS, we've teamed up with Age Together, a new, free social networking site. Age Together makes it easy for caregivers to find and connect with one another to share experiences, advice, and resource recommendations.

Age Together enables members to ask questions and exchange information with others via private, one-on-one messages. By joining communities on Age Together, like the one for TBS, you can easily connect with caregivers you know.

The more members of our community who sign up for Age Together, the better we can support one another. Even if you're a former caregiver, please consider joining so you can help others by sharing the valuable lessons you've learned.

To join the TBS Community on Age Together, please visit: www.agetogether.com/community-landing/tbsneedham.

If you have questions about the Temple's role in this endeavor, please contact Wendy Shulman at [email protected]. If you have questions about the Age Together platform, please contact Ariel Sherry at [email protected] or Steve Sherry at [email protected].
