Letter from Rabbi Ross
Dear TBS Friends and Family,
We have two exciting Chanukkah programs this weekend. On Friday night at 7:30, bring your menorah and come light together at TBS! We will sing Chanukkah songs, and have a brief Shabbat Service, and afterwards we will enjoy latkes and donuts! We will have a discussion about miracles during our service.
On Sunday, at the new City Hall, our religious school families will gather for a special Chanukkah program. All TBS members are welcome, but need to RSVP with Rabbi Rachel Brown. Everyone who comes will get a special Chanukkah bag. (We will not be eating together on Sunday.)
SHABBAT CHANUKKAH SERVICE – in-person and online
Our siddur, or prayerbook, can be found here. Please select the second book, Shabbat Holidays, Weekdays:
EXCITING NEWS! Our next “Judaism 101” class will begin in January!
I wanted to let each of you know I will be teaching a weekly “Judaism 101” course for Temple Beth Shalom, Hudson, this winter in-person and on Zoom. This class will meet on Sunday afternoons. We held this class last spring and it was a huge success!
If you ever wanted to know more about Jewish history, Jewish philosophy, holidays, or practices, then this class is for you.
This new course is perfect for:
- potential conversion candidates
- folks who want to learn about Judaism from an adult perspective and may have paused their Jewish learning as teens
- interfaith folks who want to broaden their Jewish knowledge base
- young parents who want to get grounded in their Jewish knowledge
The class will be organized like a college survey course with a focus on: Jewish history, holidays, philosophy, and prayer. The course is free for TBS members and college students, and it’s $54.00 for non-members. There will be 4 inexpensive paperbacks to purchase as part of this course. Please let me know if you are interested in this class. RSVP – email@example.com
