The President's Perspective

josh riedfordIt is very exciting to announce the establishment of a new permanent positon at the Temple: TABI Music Director. Josh Riedford (from the famous Kippah Groovin’ Band) has accepted the position. He will be working at TABI approximately twenty hours per week. His responsibilities will include working with the Sunday School, developing a youth band/orchestra, establishing an adult and/or youth choir, and leading music at three Friday night services each month (including Shabbat Rocks). He will lead music at all lifecycle events and during High Holiday services. He will be our music liaison during community events and he will enrich all of our lives with new Jewish music.

Special thanks go to the Shavitz/Enrichment Committee and the Sol and Arlen Bronstein Foundation for partially funding the TABI Music Director position. We remain hopeful that individual congregants will also join in this financial commitment to make this position a permanent aspect of TABI life. Please consider sending TABI a contribution designated for this purpose.

Thank you to all who have already responded to the request to fund the Interfaith Habitat House. I understand that we have surpassed our initial financial goal! Next, we will all have the opportunity to work together and show off our house-building skills. Watch for announcements of dates, times and ways you can join in the exciting next steps of building this new home!

Life at TABI is busy. With Spring upon us, Passover is near. Our Community Seder is Friday, April 3rd. Please consider joining us. Rabbi Mazo has promised another enjoyable and fulfilling Seder.

Message From the Rabbi - April 2015

rabbi gary mazoI want to echo our president, Marc Fine, by welcoming “officially” Josh Riedford to the Temple staff in the capacity of Music Director. It seems funny to have to welcome Josh, as so many of you have known Josh for so many years. What is very clear – and was very clear to me before I started working here – is that Josh is beloved by many in our community.

The Lady in Number 6 is one of the most inspirational and uplifting stories of the year. As the world’s oldest pianist and holocaust survivor, 109 year-old Alice Herz Sommer shares her views on how to live a long and happy life. She discusses music, laughter and how to remain optimistic come what may. The film features beautiful photographs and rare film footage that truly brings Alice’s extraordinary story to life.
