Letter from Rabbi Ross

Rabbi Michael RossFrom the Rabbi’s Desk:
I am deeply grateful to the nearly 100 people who attended our Healing Service this past Shabbat morning! I felt like we were warmly embraced by both our community members and our non-Jewish guests. It felt like a lovely way to conclude a week of shivah, a week of mourning.

As our next step together, TBS will host a “Standing Together in Thanksgiving,” an interfaith service, on Sunday, 11/18, at 7 pm.

I personally want to invite every one at TBS to join us for this evening of solidarity and community as we explore gratitude during this season.

We will be joined by Christian clergy and neighbors (Rev. Peter Wiley and Rev. Charlotte Collins Reed) who want to show their deep support for us during this challenging time. Please join us! All are welcome!
