WE BEGIN AUGUST WITH WONDERFUL NEWS!
In case you haven’t heard the buzz, we now have a part time interim Rabbi! For those who are veterans of TBT, may recognize Rabbi Marcy Greene! She has graciously come back to become our new interim Rabbi! Rabbi Greene brings an abundance of joy to our Shabbat services. Her enthusiasm is contagious and insightful D’var Torahs brings peace to the soul. Its exactly what is needed to forget your week and gently go into Friday/Saturday. She will be at TBT the 2nd and 4th of the month. If you haven’t been home for a while, I invite you to share the pure joy of Shabbat with Rabbi Greene. She is open and ready to be there for you if you have any questions or even in need.
Rabbi Greene also is the founder of L’Chaim Center.
L’Chaim means ‘towards life.’ “The mission is to find joy despite adversity in order to live a purposeful and meaningful life.” As she states on her website: She teaches spiritual life and healing, breathing new life into that old canard about not being able to control what happens to you – just how you react to it. “Here’s the blessing, here’s the curse – choose life!” I urge you to visit her website: www.lchaimcenterhouston.org. It is a nonprofit 501(3) organization. But even better, I urge to come and experience Shabbat at TBT! Give your mind body and soul a treat.
AND as the commercials says “wait…there’s more!” As if finding a Rabbi wasn’t enough, Rabbi Greene is offering some wonderful upcoming classes for us.
What happens to a Stage IV breast-cancer survivor who’s beaten all the odds? Our Rabbi Marcy Greene has a pretty good idea.
With cancer in abeyance, she’s more than an official guinea pig who endured extra rounds of herceptin to help other future survivors of the disease. A graduate of New York’s Jewish Theological Seminary, Rabbi Greene now turns Jewish scholarship into transformative action and leadership.
She celebrates life with Shabbat services, weekly Bible study, and goes head-to-head with the finest minds grappling to understand what the Talmud really teaches.
