Letter from Rabbi Ross

Rabbi Michael RossDear TBS Friends and Family,

Let go of the week and join us to welcome Shabbat holiness into our lives this Friday night at 7:30. We will also mark the 4th anniversary of the Pittsburgh Shooting this week.

PRAYER LAB – Sat. 11/5 at 9:30 am
Through discussion and text study we will explore the beauty and depth of the Shabbat siddur. We will start with a look at the opening blessings in our siddur. Then we will take time to experience the prayer itself. These sessions will be multi-access: both in-person and via zoom.

Saturday 11/5 schedule:
9:30 am – 10:10 am – study, discuss the Morning Blessings
10:10 am – 10:30 am – short prayer gathering
10:30 am – 11:00 am – Torah Study of Lech Lecha – Abraham’s journey

You have a chance to do a Mitzvah!!
