Full Bulletin Message
Instead of a traditional bulletin update, I would like to use this space to give an update on Temple Tiferet Shalom’s response to the ongoing Israel-Gaza war. This war has now trudged on to its fourth month. The world’s eyes seem to have forgotten the October 7th massacre and continue to overly scrutinize Israel’s offensive to defend its citizens and borders. But here at TTS, we are invested in celebrating our Zionist commitment and bringing Israel education, appreciation, and reflection to our community. The TTS Israel Task Force has worked diligently to set a course of action for the spring, and more information will be coming shortly. In the meantime, here are a few links for you to engage more with where things stand with Israel and the local Jewish community for now.
Rabbi Evan’s d’var on anti-Semitism on college campuses (15 Dec., 2023) here

Support Israel with the purchase of Israel bonds here and CJP’s Emergency Israel Fund here.
Do you know we are not the only Temple Tiferet Shalom? There is one in Tel Aviv, as well! We are working on building a relationship between our two communities. In the meantime, check out their website here!

.עֹשֶׂה שָׁלוֹם בִּמְרוֹמָיו, הוּא יַעֲשֶׂה שָׁלוֹם, עָלֵֽינוּ וְעַל כָּל־יִשְׂרָאֵל, וְאִמְרוּ: אָמֵן
May the One who makes peace in the high heavens make peace for us, for all Israel and all who inhabit the earth. Amen.
Rabbi Evan (he/him)
