Letter from Rabbi Ross

Rabbi Michael RossDear TBS friends and family,

Please consider joining us for a new year of Torah study, in our wonderful group, Torah For Our Times. The group meets Saturday morning, for conversation about the weekly Torah reading. Perfect for newcomers and first timers, as well as long-time students! This group now meets every other week on Saturday mornings, from 9:30 to 11:00. All are welcome!

Torah For Our Times, Sat. 9:30 a.m.

SAVE THE DATE – Virtual Interfaith Thanksgiving Service 11/22, 7 pm
The clergy of Hudson will join together in gratitude at our annual Interfaith Thanksgiving Service. As we face the challenges of the coming election, the clergy of Hudson have planned to come together in unison to represent our community. Please join Rev. Peter Wiley, Rev. Charlotte Collins Redd, and me for a virtual interfaith gathering of hope and peace, the Sunday evening before Thanksgiving.

Rabbi’s New Book Group, “Caste,” Sun 11/15, 1 pm!
I am forming a new book group to read and discuss Isabel Wilkerson’s new book, “Caste: The Origin of our Discontents.” This book looks at the structure of hatred and discrimination in America, Nazi Germany, and India.

She is a historian and writer, who has developed a new perspective on the institutional nature of oppression in this country. She also wrote the award-winning “Warmth of Other Suns.”

The group will meet November 15 at 1:00 pm. Please get a copy of the book and read through the first 100 pages. If there’s desire, we will have a second session on this book as well.
