What’s your tallit story?
Rabbi Sharon Sobel is pleased to launch TBS’s “Sharing Personal Tallit Memories” writing project. These stories will be collected, compiled and distributed during our Scholar/Artist in Residence Weekend February 3-5th, 2023 with Daniel Abramson.
Daniel is an educator, artist, environmentalist. We’ll be learning with him, creating an oversize painting-on-silk TBS tallit to be used for community events, and celebrating Tu B’shvat with our community-wide Tu B’shvat Festival on Sunday, February 5th, beginning at 9 am. (Stay tuned for details!)
