Rabbi’s Message

Rabbi’s Blurb

Hi, hoping you had a Thanksgiving filled with family, friends, delicious food, and gratitude for each blessing in our lives!

Our heartfelt condolences go out to Marsha and Tom Henderson on the passing of their kind and gentle nephew Gregg Thayer, Jerry Cahn on the passing of his beloved wife Jean, Harriet Hayes on the passing of her dear mother, Gail Herman, and Maury Klann on the passing of her cherished father Seymour Beck.  Marsha, Tom, Jerry, Harriet, and Maury, your TBT family is thinking about you, especially during this time of year, which can be especially difficult.

I will be away from Dec 5 to 18.  Rabbi Dan Gordon will be on call for me in case of any emergency.  He can be reached at 281-216-2558.  Also, if you need/would like to reach me during that time best way will be through WhatsApp.

Our adult education study book, thanks to Stuart Eisen’s recommendation, will be The Art of Inventing Hope, Intimate Conversations with Elie Wiesel, by Howard Reich.  We will meet twice to discuss it, the first time, Saturday morning December 21st, at 10 am at TBT.  On December 21st, we’ll look at our calendars and set up our second time.  Please let me know if you are interested and available at rebdeb18@comcast.net.

We have two special opportunities to share in the joy of Chanukah this year!  With heartfelt thanks to Deb Nowinski for writing an adorable play for our children about Chanukah which will take place during our family service on Friday December 6th.  And we will  celebrate Chanukah together during our Chanukah service on Friday December 27th.  Please remember to bring your hannukiot (menorahs) along with Chanukah candles!
