WTBT would like to thank those who supported our successful Hamantaschen Bake Sale. Tremendous gratitude for Rabbi Eve Ben-Ora and Rebecca Schulman, our amazing bakers who spent countless hours baking delicious Purim treats! Also thank you to Jackie Bazley and Arlene Peavey, as we could not have done this without your support! 

Since July 2020, WTBT has held monthly Rosh Chodesh meetings, a membership tea, several baking demonstrations, and two crafts and schmoozes - all over Zoom! We greatly appreciate the generous donations made to WTBT to support these events. Your donations are greatly appreciated and enable WTBT to support programs and activities within TBT and the community at large.
