Dear TBS Friends and Family,
Last Friday night was a special night for TBS. We hosted a catered dinner for our Judaism 101 class members. Thank you to Laurie Frankino and Jean Rhodes for all of your assistance! Afterwards the class went upstairs for services.
It was such a blessing and joy to host TBS’ inaugural Pride Shabbat! It was a powerful moment to witness our two new Jews receive the Torah in their arms and become counted among the community of Israel. We will all remember that moment for years to come. It was also a wonderful joy to share the bimah with Chuck Fink, our summer cantorial sub, while Robin is in Israel.
PROPHETS’ CLASS: JEREMIAH – Sat. 6/11, 9:30 am, in-person and on zoom
Our Prophets’ class turns to the study of Jeremiah. We are living in challenging times, Jeremiah is a voice that resonates today, when we lament so much in our lives these days. Bagel brunch will be served!
Please find ways to support folks in Ukraine this week:
- Rabbi Rachel and I donated to the JDC. I directed a few more TBS donors to send their tzedakah funds there: https://www.jdc.org/
- HIAS is collecting to support the refugees: https://www.hias.org/
- Cleveland Federation is collecting for Ukraine here: https://www.jewishcleveland.org/
- World Union for Progressive Judaism is helping at this link: https://wupj.org/give/ukraine/
Please find ways to research about the Jews in Ukraine as well. The history is fascinating. It’s worth noting how TBS assisted the Jews fleeing the former Soviet Union 30 years ago. Our assistance and support will be needed again. I do believe we will be asked to welcome Ukrainian refugees in the coming weeks and months.
