TONIGHT IS FORTY TWO DAYS, WHICH IS SIX WEEKS, OF THE OMER


Being Jewish means having a community such as our TBA community to call home – a place that is so much more than a house of worship – it’s our home…complete with our second family where together we celebrate our simchas and also help one another through the toughest of times. TBA is both our house of worship and a second home.

TONIGHT IS FORTY-THREE DAYS, WHICH IS SIX WEEKS AND ONE DAY, OF THE OMER

*We are posting this response today, so you do not have to use your computer/phone on Shabbat.


Being Jewish is my identity just as it is being an American woman. It is also my connection to all of the generations of Jews who came before me since we share many of the same experiences. The idea of appreciating not eating on Yom Kippur to understand what that may be like for another person (even though we know there is a break-fast to go to), or to enjoy the simple beauty of lighting candles, and the shared experience of eating Matzah for a week. My Grandmother exemplified this feeling when during her last days she shared that she wasn’t sure who or where she was, but she knew she was Jewish.
