Rosh Hashanah

Yom Kippur

Message from Rabbi Andrea

June 25, 2019

My Dear Community-
I came to TI 4 years ago now, with a seven-year plan in mind. I felt I had one more good piece of work in me. My time here has been amazing and interesting. I am challenged on many levels, in a good way. I feel my main purpose here - embedded in the davening and the administration and the education and the pastoral care and the social justice work - is to effect human development and organizational development.
