Letter from Rabbi Ross

Rabbi Michael RossDear TBS Family and Friends,

We want to wish Lydia Bronstein and her husband, Timothy Drake, a huge mazal tov on the birth of their baby boy! On Thursday, Rabbi Ross and Dr. Justin Lappen, a local mohel, joined the Bronstein Drake family for a Zoom bris. Lydia and Tim formally welcomed their new son into the covenant with the announcement of his name, Isaac. TBS will formally welcome Isaac and his parents for a special honor during our Rosh Hashanah morning services.

Please join us this Saturday morning at 9:30 am, for Torah for Our Times. This Torah study group is perfect for newcomers and experienced students.
