Rabbi's Weekly Message

Rabbi's Message

We had a wonderful morning this past Sunday, as religious school began for the year and the building filled with the sounds of curious, happy children making themselves at home.  After school, we had a picnic for the entire congregation, and the grounds of the temple were filled with lots of joy!

 I always love when our students return from their summer breaks.  This is not only because of what we get to do together when they are here, but also because I get to hear about all that they did during the summer months.

 Many of our students attended Jewish summer camps, and a number of our teens had the extraordinary experience of travelling to Israel.  On Friday night, September 20 (next Friday, NOT this week!), we will have a special “Welcome Home” Shabbat service.  All of our campers and Israel travelers are invited to attend.  We all want to celebrate you, learn about your experiences, and enjoy a delicious oneg together. 

 All are welcome to attend and enjoy seeing our TBK students who have returned home from their special summer adventures!
