Tot Shabbat brings together families with children from 18 months to 5 years with their parents many times per year in the Chapel on Shabbat mornings. A parent led activity, Tot Shabbat includes tefillah (prayer), songs, Shabbat stories, Torah parade and mini-kiddush.
TI also holds weekly events for children and youth of many ages, see Shabbat Children's and Youth Activities.
To contact a participating parent,
Great activity for you and the kids, even the youngest in your family.
We bake casseroles for the shelter operated by So Others Might Eat (SOME).
Baking a casserole can be pretty easy for many TI members, but we make it even easier: we give you the recipe! If you think you can ﬁre up your oven, even if only once during the year, then please volunteer.
Opened as a small soup kitchen in 1970, with the help of volunteers SOME now provides a nourishing, hot breakfast and lunch every day of the year.
Or you can bring frozen casseroles to the Rubin house on the Tuesdays listed above.
Recipe: Any casserole is acceptable, Macaroni and Cheese, Tuna Noodle, etc.
Tuna Noodle Casserole
Cook 1 lb egg noodles
Place in a disposable 'lasagna' sized pan along with 3 cans of cream of mushroom soup (without water), 4 cans of tuna, and 1 pkg of frozen peas
Sprinkle bread crumbs on top
Bake 350° for 1/2 hour
Cover securely; preferably freeze before delivery
Help support those who are hungry by joining us as we drive a soup-and-sandwich van one Sunday a month, serving dinner to homeless men and women on the streets of downtown Washington, in partnership with Martha’s Table.
Cooking for a crowd is seldom as appreciated as when two TI families cook and help serve dinner to 25 women living in a shelter at the Luther Place church’s “N Street Village”. With your help just one Sunday a year this dinner becomes a way to get to know others from TI and do a Mitzvah at the same time.
For at least twelve years, adults and teenagers from TI and Shepherd Park have tutored students from our local public elementary school. Each tutor is paired with a young (grade 2-6) student for the school year. The pair meet for one hour each week at the synagogue to read, practice math skills, or review homework. The weekly hour can make a tremendous difference in the academic performance of participating students by boosting their self-conﬁdence and strengthening skills learned in school - a very high rate of return on volunteer service.
Join Roz Kram and a crew of volunteers as we help prepare delicious menus for our Birthday and anniversary kiddushim, for the Yom Kippur Break Fast, and for other special events. Lots of hands make the work go faster, as we stir, chop, talk, laugh, and taste.
We'll be reading fiction, non-fiction as well as memoirs over the coming year. Come. discuss, kibbitz and give us your ideas for the next book.

We'll customize your Jewish wedding experience. Going the traditional wedding route with a tish and a b'decken? No problem. Private Ketubah signing in the rabbi's study? We can do that. Separate dressing rooms for brides and grooms? Yes. And if you don't have a rabbi connection, we can help with that too.
Our Social hall seats up to 175 for dinner, has a great wood dance floor, adjustable lights and is easy to decorate. We can recommend bands that play a wide selection of traditional, Israeli, and American music, or a DJ that can spin for you all night long.
And we won't nickel and dime you. We have a single flat rental fee for the entire building for your event.
More Information –
Call or e-mail us. We look forward to helping make your wedding memorable.
