Letter from Rabbi Ross

Rabbi Michael RossDear TBS Friends and Family,

This Saturday we have our next Prayer Lab as we move through the Pesukei Dezimra section where we find Ashrei and Psalm 150. Join us as we discuss the structure and meaning of these wonderful prayers.

Chanukkah Shabbat Service
SPECIAL TIME: 12/16 @ 7:00 pm
Bring your menorah and come sing Chanukkah songs with us! We will also have a special naming ceremony for Brady Weinstein! Please make a special effort to join us for this holiday celebration!

Prayer Lab – Sat. 12/10
We had an amazing turnout last time, and I look forward to this group growing and developing. Each session is independent, so folks can come and go as they need to and do not need to attend each session. Join us for bagels, great discussion, and some Torah Study about this week’s section, Vayishlach (the wrestling match!). These sessions will be multi-access: both in-person and via zoom.

Sisterhood Latke Fry – Sun. 12/4
Last Sunday morning, 11 TBS Sisterhood volunteers led by Robin Rosen Sharp and Jeanie Rhodes took over the TBS kitchen for their annual “Latke Fry”. This year, they made a record 30 dozen latkes! 13 dozen where donated to our religious school for their Chanukah celebration this Sunday and our Chanukah Shabbat Service oneg December 16, and the rest were made to fulfill orders from congregants who preordered them at $10 per dozen.
Thanks to all who volunteered and to those who supported Sisterhood with their purchase!

Mitzvah Alert!!
This summer, a friend of mine collected feminine hygiene items for a charity and I put it in my mind that perhaps our Sisterhood could do a similar collection. I am requesting that anyone who is able to please bring feminine hygiene products to our Sisterhood Latke Fry event. I have reached out to two different charities-the Food Bank at Rejoice Lutheran Church in Hudson and North High School (our First Serve partnership has focused on this North Hill high school) to receive our donations. If you are unable to come to the Latke Fry, we still welcome your donation! I will collect items until December 11th. Any questions, please reach out to Kim Strausser kimstrausser@gmail.com
