Rav Sela's 2019-2020 letter to the community


         As you fill out your membership forms for another year at TRZ I hope that you look forward to a great year at TRZ.  A year filled with meaningful and uplifting High Holiday and Shabbat services.  A year filled with holiday programs and barbeques.  A year filled with guest speakers and religious school education.  A year filled with laughter and joy in preschool. 

          I am looking forward to another year at TRZ.  This past year we accomplished so much.  We welcomed in many new families and our preschool and religious school continue to thrive.  Where in the past, the joyous simchas, like weddings, Bar and Bat Mitzvahs, brises and babynamings, were few and far between, we are now swimming in a sea of simchas.  This past year we celebrated 12 Bnai Mitzvah of 13 year olds and 3 2nd Bar Mitzvahs (at age 83), this coming year we have even more scheduled.  What a joy it is to be part of a community that has so much to celebrate!

We continued to have fantastic adult education speakers like Dr. Mark Kligman and our Scholar-in-Residence Rabbi Ilana Grinblat, as well as classes taught by myself and Cantor Friedman, both inside and outside of TRZ.  We have enjoyed some amazing musical experiences starting with an outdoor summer concert, the Interfaith Thanksgiving Service, Shabbat Sings, and amazing Friday night Shabbat Experiences including the Cantor Marsha Attie.  We also continued feeding thousands of hungry people through our food pantry and marched in the Walk to End Genocide with Jewish World Watch. 

So many of our congregants, young and old, took part in the Shabbes Project, making Shabbat candles, baking challah, cooking dinner, tasting wine, and making havdallah sets.  Everyone had a great time and learned all about the rituals of Shabbat.

In the coming year look forward to more opportunities to be together as the multi-generational family that we are.  We will continue having some very special musical Shabbat services throughout the year, and I hope that you take advantage of experiencing different Jewish musical styles and how they can help us feel better connected with our prayers.

I hope that you join us and make TRZ your home away from home.  The laughter of children, the joy of old friends connecting and reconnecting, Bar and Bat Mitzvahs, weddings, brises, and baby namings-all of these fill our halls.  TRZ is vibrant with Jewish life.  Join us and be a part of our family.

I hope to see you soon at one of the summer Open Houses, Barbeques, or Shabbat services.
