TONIGHT IS THIRTY DAYS, WHICH IS FOUR WEEKS AND TWO DAYS, OF THE OMER
Joining TBA is just the beginning. TBA is one of the blessings of my adult life.
Women’s Circle, a new venture was just starting and it was a wonderful way to meet so many members. Everyone participated and you were also invited to share ideas and lead the group discussion, (and I did).
[When I was] two years in, [I joined]…the Adult B’nai Mitzvah class. This introduced more intense study of the HolyDays, prayers/prayer book. Becoming an adult Bat Mitzvah was a long time wish and now [it was] a reality. It was an honor to chant Torah and to make new friends. Another great gift was Rabbi Teluskin’s “Guide to Everyday Jewish Living.” An easy read full of Jewish Thoughts and life’s guidelines. I recommend this book often.
Counting the Omer allows us to concentrate on how to live/appreciate our best life, plus Tikkun Olam. Being Jewish and part of the TBA family enhances relationships, worship and prayer, learning, sharing, and it is a wonderful, warm Community. Led by learned, warm clergy, weekly Shabbat services are a joy! AND these are some of my blessings.
