After a visit with some Israeli friends recently, I gained a new perspective on life. Here were people that have Hezbollah rockets in Lebanon aimed at them, tunnels from Gaza and a nuclear build up in Iran. What are they worried about? The future of American Jewry.
They worry about us because we are not worried enough about ourselves. We don’t seem to care that we are fading into the secular mass and don’t participate in synagogue life.
When I retired in 2007, I committed myself to Jewish causes. I have been active in the Jewish Federation, Hillel, AIPAC and now TBT. For me, TBT is more than a social club with services for sale.
It is the future of our Jewish community. I marvel at our Tot Shabbats and Chavaya youth education programs on Saturdays. I love to hear adults wrestling over Torah or learning to chant in Hebrew. It warms my heart to see families working together on Mitzvah Meals serving those less fortunate in our community.
But our community is not complete unless you come. There is something completely unique about each of you that helps color our Jewish experience. We welcome you with open arms and hearts. Contact me anytime. Let’s find a place for YOU to call home.
