Put Some Spice in Your Life

WE LEARN TOGETHER

Join us on the first and third Wednesdays for monthly presentations from TBE Clergy and Charlotte area professionals. 

WE HAVE FUN TOGETHER

Visit great venues with SPICE Outs, which take SPICE offsite to museums, theaters, and other locations providing an atmosphere for exceptional learning experiences and fabulously fun times.


WE CARE FOR EACH OTHER

Provide companionship with Seniors Visiting Seniors which trains volunteers who offer companionship. Providing some much-needed conversation, a friendly face, encouraging words, and quiet listening are incredible mitzvot.


WE ACT TOGETHER

SPICE is a partner to Sterling Elementary School. Raising funds, providing enhancements to students’ experiences, rewards for achieving goals, and working one-on-one with students to elevate learning experiences are the hallmarks of SPICE’s relationship with Sterling Elementary.

WE PRAY TOGETHER

We attend Shabbat Evening Service and host a Potluck Dinner every quarter. Nothing says community like a jointly made and shared meal.

SPICE programming is funded in part by the Marshall Lindner SPICE Endowment.
