Letter from Rabbi Ross

Rabbi Michael RossDear TBS Family and Friends,

This week marks both Israel’s Memorial Day and Israel’s Independence Day. We will mark these moments in our upcoming Shabbat Service on Friday, May 8.

This Monday, is the 50th anniversary of the May 4 shootings at Kent State University. Our special torah study this Saturday, 5/2, will be dedicated to this event and the role it plays in our lives in Summit County. If you grew up in this area and have a special relationship to this event, please join us for our special gathering and a brief memorial service Saturday at 9:30 a.m.
