Find Your TriBE by Andy Harkavy, Director of Congregational Engagement

TriBEs are small groups of individuals, couples, or families that help make our big community feel small. They help every person be a part of something sacred. They help to deepen your connection with other congregants who share similar interests or life stages. They enable you to share Jewish experiences, conversations, and celebrations with other congregants.

TriBEs are regular gatherings of five to fifteen congregants in people’s homes, offices, or anywhere around Charlotte that promote relationship building. They are led by TriBE Leaders with the frequency, dates, and locations of meetings determined by the group in its first meeting. Some TriBEs will connect around common interests, affinities, geography, demographic, or profession. Other TriBEs will gather to discuss topics of deep concern or importance to their lives. All will engage in meaningful conversations and learning through curriculum provided by Temple Beth El.

On October 23rd, we will hold our Baby Boomer/Empty Nester TriBE Launch Party/Matching Event to kick off our Small Groups initiative at Temple Beth El. TriBEs are about creating authentic relationships and deep connections where congregants are in the driver seat and become an active stakeholder in their own Jewish journey so they feel intimately connected to each other and our Temple community.

36 TriBE Leaders/Co-Leaders have stepped up and have been trained to help transform congregational engagement through TriBEs (Small Groups) at Temple Beth El. TriBEs are designed to inspire us and transform our lives and the world around us, with deeper relationships and a greater experience of joy and meaning. Take a leap with us and find your TriBE!

We already have 200 congregants registered for this exciting event and expect many more to attend! Register online by tomorrow (Friday, October 19th) to reserve your spot.
