It’s Goodbye, For Now
Congregants and friends stopped by on Saturday, February 14th to say good-bye to long time Rockfordian and Temple Member, Tony Toback. After a series of falls and health issues, the decision was made that Tony might be better near his daughter in New York.
From Rabbi Binah Wing
Spring time may seem quite a long way off when you are looking at single digit temperatures and watching a few inches of snow fall to the ground. However, the Jewish calendar is quickly moving towards the celebration of spring and the renewal of creation and growth that it represents. Purim is fast approaching (our celebration is Wednesday, March 4th at 6pm!) and Passover is just around the corner. In fact, Passover is so early in April (1st Seder is Friday, April 3rd) that I want to mention it now.
