Letter from Rabbi Ross

Rabbi Michael RossDear TBS Friends and Family,

Please join us for our annual Congregational Outdoor Picnic & Service at Hudson Springs Park. We will also begin to discuss the High Holidays and how we can prepare for this year’s season of transformation. (Details are below.)

HIGH HOLIDAY WORKSHOP, 8/22 (4:30-6:00pm, at TBS or on Zoom)

On Sunday afternoon, we will have a workshop to explore our new High Holiday prayerbooks, or machzorim, called Mishkan HaNefesh. We will also have a brief journaling session to prepare us for the holidays. This session will be both in-person and on Zoom. We will gather in a socially distant manner, masked in the library.

SELICHOT SERVICE & ELUL JOURNALING, 8/28 (7:30-10:00 pm, at TBS)

On Saturday evening, 8/28, at 7:30 pm, we will have another High Holiday Workshop and journaling session. These sessions will be independent and will complement each other. Come to either or both! After our workshop, we will have some dessert at 9 and around 9:15, we will join with Robin Selinger for a brief Selichot service in the sanctuary.
