TAE Chorale Open Rehearsal

Thursday, June 8, 2023

The TAE Chorale is opening its arms this spring to NEW singers! If you are a TAE partner in good standing, and have been singing along with us from the pews, please join us for an open rehearsal and sing some of our most beloved and familiar Shabbat favorites. While reading music is helpful, it is not required as long as you can hold your harmony. This is the perfect time of year to join our music family!

Facilities Fee FAQ

What happened to the Building Maintenance Fee?
The Building Maintenance Fee is being replaced with an Annual Facilities Fee. The previous Building Maintenance Fee was a one-time fee payable over 6 years. This year, the TAE Board of Trustees voted to update the model to the new Facilities Fee, while will be assessed annually (July 1 – June 30).

The Facilities Fee will help us navigate the rising costs of keeping the temple facilities safe, clean, and modern.

How much is the Annual Facilities Fee?

For the 2023-2024 fiscal year, the fee is $180 for the year. This is only $15 per month and will ensure our temple facility is well taken care of.

Do I have to pay the full facilities fee all at once?
No, just like your dues and other temple commitments, you may pay in installments throughout the year and completed by the end of each fiscal year (June 30).

If you need help setting up autopay for your account, please contact Vanessa in the temple accounting office at (805) 497-7101.

What if I already paid my Building Maintenance Fee in full?
If you’ve already completed your Building Maintenance Fee commitment, we thank you! That money helped the temple complete past building maintenance-related projects. This new fee will be assessed for all TAE partner households beginning this year, independent of any previous Building Maintenance Fees paid.

I had my building maintenance fee deferred. What if I can’t afford this additional cost on top of my dues and other temple obligations?
The Building Maintenance Fee has been superseded by the new Annual Facilities Fee which is paid annually and is not deferrable. However, if you need consideration for alternate payment plans, please complete a financial assistance form at

I’m confused and have more questions. Who can I talk to?
If you have additional questions, please feel free to call Susie Guldbeck in the temple office at (805) 497-7101.

Sunday Morning Speaker with Rabbi Diamond

May 7, 2023
9:15 – 11:15 a.m.
TAE Social Hall

Kabalah, Mysticism, and the Mysteries of the World

If traditional belief in God doesn’t excite you, then prepare yourself for some Jewish ideas that are so insightful, so radical, and so modern, that many rabbis tried to suppress them. But they couldn’t. Join Rabbi Diamond on May 7 and learn how ancient insights can transform our lives, whether or not we believe.

Rabbi Diamond’s Sunday morning events have always been entertaining and insightful.  This one promises to be the same.  We hope to see you there!


For those of you who plan to attend, PLEASE  RSVP TO EITHER BROTHERHOOD PRESIDENT BOB SALFI, OR HERB SHUKIAR, to know how much food to provide.  Our normal bagel brunch fare includes lox, bagels, cream cheese, herring, onions, tomatoes, fruits and other tempting treats. 

There is no charge for this event, but we do suggest a $5 donation to help defray the event’s cost.
