I am so excited to have officially begun as your Cantor, Educator and Sr. Clergy
! As June and Cindy mentioned, I have already been working to familiarize myself with a variety of committees and meet as many of our leadership team as possible. The excitement generated by our discussions and exchange of ideas was palpable.
We are on the precipice right now of a time for innovation and growth. Opportunities abound in which to bring our community, in all its different contingencies, together as one loving TBC family. I look forward to settling in in the coming weeks and meeting many of you either virtually or via small, socially distanced gatherings.
We have much to do and celebrate together in the coming months and I am overjoyed to begin. I invite you all to dream big and share those dreams with me. Our community and its future are limited only by those boundaries we impose on ourselves. As Rabbi Tarfon teaches in Pirkei Avot (2:21), "It is not your responsibility to finish the work of perfecting the world, but neither are you free to desist from it." Here's to rolling up our sleeves together and diving in....
B'shirah v'Brachot (In song and blessings)!
