Letter from Rabbi Ross

Rabbi Michael RossDear TBS Friends and Family,

As we prepare for Thanksgiving, we have two wonderful opportunities to connect to the community this weekend. On Saturday, at 9:30 a.m., our Prophets class will examine the origins of the monarchy in Ancient Israel and how this idea develops into the mashiach, or anointed one. On Sunday evening at 7pm, TBS members will gather at the First Congregational Church for our annual Interfaith Thanksgiving Service.
