Letter from Rabbi Ross

Rabbi Michael RossDear TBS Family and Friends,

During this month of Elul, before Rosh Hashanah, we begin to wake up to the reality of our lives and try to get back on track. This process of returning to our highest self is called Teshuvah. We will focus on this special process at our new adult education class, “Entering the High Holiday Liturgy.” Details of these three classes are below.

Prep class for the New Year – this Sunday morning!
TBS will be using new machzorim this year – Mishkan Hanefesh for Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. We will have a two more classes to look at these lovely, new prayer books as we prepare for the Jewish New Year. The classes will be August, 8/30 from 10:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. The third session will be on Thursday, 9/10, at 7:30 pm. We will study and discuss the new book, and journal about the year that is ending. Members are welcome to attend one, two or all three classes. Each session will be independent.
