Letter from Rabbi Ross

Rabbi Michael RossDear TBS friends and family,

What a wonderful week of Chanukkah celebrations! A huge thank you to Rabbi Rachel Brown, Robin Selinger, Laurie Frankino, James Field, and Robin Rosen-Sharp for leading warm, meaningful gatherings and keeping us connected to each other!

Our service this Friday will keep up the theme of restoring the light, as we prepare for the upcoming winter solstice. We will also begin to explore our hopes, wishes and dreams for 2021, since this is our final Shabbat gathering of 2020. Join us for this special discussion.

We had a wonderful discussion of the opening two sections of Isabel Wilkerson’s new book. Please join us on 12/27 when we discuss the third and fourth sections of this intriguing book that explores oppression and hate from an American lens, a Nazi lens, and an Indian lens.
