Yom HaShoah v'Hagevurah - Holocaust Memorial Day is Wednesday night April 7th through Thursday April 8th. Rabbi Rosenstein is preparing a Zoom presentation for our community which will be held via Zoom on Sunday, April 25th at 11 AM. This year's theme will focus on what Jewish communities of Europe looked like between the two world wars, including communities of Jews in shtetl, towns and cities. Not every Jew lived in a rural shtetl where woman wore babushkas and men had beards down to their navels. That very narrow stereotype is not an accurate portrayal of the complex and varied Jewish life experience between the war years. Many Jews dressed in modern clothing, participated in social and cultural activities, owned automobiles, attended universities, were merchants, doctors, teachers, and business owners. Rabbi Rosenstein hopes to convey a portrait of Jewish life between the war years that more fully represents European Jewry of that time. 
This Zoom event will require prior registration. Details to follow.

To get our Yom HaShoah commemoration off to a good start, Rabbi Rosenstein is recommending a YouTube video called He Gave Us Life- The Story of David Cassuto, A Sephardic Jew from Italy. Here is a synopsis of the video produced by Yad Vashem: "David Cassuto was born in Florence, Italy in 1937, to Hannah and Nathan. During the Second World War, his father served as a doctor and as chief rabbi of the Florence Jewish community. In 1943, as deportations of Italian Jewry to the extermination camps began, his family scattered in different hiding places. His father was an underground member, and helped rescue Jews until he was caught and arrested. In trying to release his father, his mother was also caught and imprisoned. The two were interrogated and then sent to Auschwitz. During this period, David and his siblings, under assumed identities, were hidden in various locations unaware of the fate of their parents. David, his brother and sister survived the war, and after the liberation of Italy, immigrated to pre-state Israel, where they were received in Jerusalem by their grandparents, Prof. Moshe Cassuto and his wife Simcha who raised them. David would go on to become an architect and a lecturer in architecture."

This is not a video filled with the horrors of skeletal bodies, mounds of eye glasses or piles of shoes and shorn hair. This is a story of personal triumph, positive attitude, and strong family connections. It is a good way to begin our Yom HaShoah commemoration. The production quality is first rate and is appropriate for mature tweens, teens and adults. The video is about an hour long.

Great News!
TBS will be re-opening to its members beginning Friday night, May 7th. We will have space for 9 individuals at each service. We will be taking reservations for both Friday nights and Shabbat mornings soon. If we have an abundance of requests, we will shift to a lottery system. We will also continue to offer all services via Zoom. This is called a hybrid approach and we intend to use this system for all of our services. The specific details of how to reserve your seat for a specific service will be forthcoming. In time, guests will once again be welcome on sight, but our priority will be to offer on sight seating to our members in good standing.
Zoom
All services are will be conducted via Zoom until further notice. Gwen Schlumbolm is still available for those who need help. Her phone number is 951-970-5389. Call her if you are stuck.
