Letter from Rabbi Ross

Rabbi Michael RossDear TBS Friends and Family,

I want to thank everyone for coming out to our amazing Chanukkah Service last Friday! It was such a joy to fill the pews with your smiling faces as we lit the candles, and formally announced Brady Weinstein’s Hebrew name.

A big thank you to Laurie Frankino, Amy McCormick, Julie Lakas, Beth Remer, and Joyce Bigam for all of your help and support with the food spread! A big thank you to Robin Selinger and Adam Alderson for leading our music and coordinating our zoom meeting.

We are halfway through Chanukkah as I write this. May we all become a shamash lighting the candles of our loved ones and friends these holidays. We can bring our light and our hope to others. Here’s a wonderful video about “Returning the Light!”

I will be on vacation next week so let me wish each of you a wonderful holiday season and a Happy New Year! Let’s hope 2023 is filled with health, hope and an open heart.

Prayer Lab – Sat. 1/7/2023
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, Vayechi, as we end the book of Genesis. These sessions will be multi-access: both in-person and via zoom.
