Letter from Rabbi Ross

Rabbi Michael RossDear TBS friends and family,

Please join us for our Shabbat Services this Friday night at 7:30 as we let go of the week and welcome in holiness.


The holiday of Shavuot begins Sunday 5/16 at sundown. It’s a time to commemorate the giving of the 10 commandments at Mount Sinai. It’s also a spring harvest festival, and dairy foods are often served in abundance.

TBS has co-sponsored the community Shavuot night of learning, at Bnai Jeshurun in Pepper Pike, the past few years. We will do so again this year, and Rabbi Michael Ross will be teaching on Zoom, at 8:30 pm Sun. 5/16, on “Re-imagining the Covenant.” Please click here to read through the pdf for details. We will all need to register beforehand to access the Zoom link that night.

You can register for the Shavuot sessions here: https://bnaijeshurun.formstack.com/forms/snl

Torah study on Sat. 5/15 will focus on the special Shavuot text, the Book of Ruth, in preparation for the holiday. We will add Shavuot themes into our Friday service on 5/21.
