This Week's Torah Thought from Rabbi Zylberman
This Shabbat falls on the 9th of Av, Tisha b’Av, a day of mourning for the destruction of the holy Temples in Jerusalem and an array of other tragedies that have befallen our people over the millennia. (As the joy of Shabbat takes precedence, this year the mourning associated with the day is postponed till Sunday). According to tradition, the fall of the Temple in 70 CE was the result of baseless hatred (sinat chinam). We have seen baseless hatred arise time and again throughout history against our people and other peoples. It is evil because it causes untold pain to those who are its targets. But it is also deeply corrosive to those who give it harbor. Baseless hatred in whatever form - be it antisemitism, racism, Islamophobia, the targeting of immigrants or members of the LGBTQ community - rots away at the society that allows it to raise its ugly head.
Strength of tradition and warmth of community are at the heart of our congregation, yet we are so much more. We are a center for Jewish life, a home away from home where you and your loved ones can share with us in the life-long Jewish journey of learning and discovery.
Whatever your background, age, or stage of life, we invite you to get to know us by checking out our diverse programs, worship services and special events. We hope that you will find TBY at the center of your Jewish life. LGBTQI+ and Interfaith couples and families welcome!
