Dear Temple B'nai Chaim Family,

After reading an account of the recent violence and protests written by the President of the Reform synagogue in Charlottesville, Congregation Beth Israel, I felt strongly that TBC should reach out in friendship and support.  A copy of my letter to Congregation Beth Israel can be found by clicking on the link below. 

In the past week, I have also affirmed our relationships within the local interfaith community.

I urge you to join me at 7pm on Wednesday evening as representatives from many local congregations come together for an event called " Standing Together, Standing Strong: An Interfaith Gathering."  
The program is open to everyone and will take place at Our Lady of Fatima Church (229 Danbury Road, Wilton).  I hope that you will bring your friends and family.  
"Standing Together, Standing Strong: An Interfaith Gathering" will be a meaningful opportunity for our local community to recommit ourselves to standing up for one another and for what is right.

Shavua Tov .  May we have a week filled with peace and goodness.

Rabbi Rachel Bearman
