Message from the Rabbi

Dear TBC Community,

Passover has always been my favorite holiday. I love the traditions, the stories, the songs. I love the food... even the gefilte fish. And, most of all, I love that it is a holiday that we celebrate with family, friends, and neighbors.

I am so excited that this year we have the opportunity to celebrate Passover as one, extended, TBC family. At our Community Passover Seder, our tables will be full of community members. We will read from a haggadah created by and for our community. We will eat delicious food prepared and organized by our community. And we will recount the Israelite's journey to freedom as a diverse and committed Jewish community. Passover is a holiday meant to be celebrated as a family, and on April 4 th, the TBC family will celebrate with sincerity, warmth, and joy.

I hope to see you at our Community Passover Seder.  It's going to be a wonderful evening!



Rabbi Rachel Bearman
