Letter from Rabbi Ross

Rabbi Michael RossDear TBS Friends and Family,

Last week I officiated at the funeral of David Siegel. It was touching and poignant to see so many of David’s friends, TBS folks and caregivers who came to honor this wonderful man. Beth Madis’ father, Arnold Remer, also died last week. His funeral was Friday in Toledo. A special havdalah gathering will be held at her home this Saturday evening, 7/16. May David and Arnold’s memories be a blessing.
