Shabbat shalom! This Shabbat evening at 7:30pm two of our college/grad students, Ariel Milan-Polisar and Laura Kirschner, will join Rabbi Holtz and me on the bimah to help lead our community in prayer. It is so special to have these young women join us on the bimah to share their love of music and Judaism with us and to transform our worship. We hope that you will join us! Click here for a taste of our rehearsal with Ariel.
I love when our college kids are home! There is something about their return to Westchester and TBA that it is miraculous. Maybe it is that they return to the area and include TBA in their itinerary. Maybe it is because they are so happy and enthusiastic about life in general. Maybe it is because it is so special to see the people that they are becoming and to hear about their journeys! Through our Away@School program we keep in touch with many of our college and grad school students throughout the year. We want to make sure that they know that even though they are far away they are still a part of the TBA family and we want to keep them connected to Judaism. If you are interested, it is not too late to sign up your college/grad student-click here.
This Shabbat morning at 9:00am we hope that you will join us for services in the Conservative tradition. It is a wonderful service with an incredible sense of community. Join us to support those who are saying Kaddish, for a lively Torah discussion, and to meet with friends in prayer and community. A special Kiddush luncheon follows this week’s service.
Whatever your plans are this Shabbat I hope that it includes meeting with friends that you haven’t seen in a while and sharing stories of their lives and journeys.
