Rabbi Alyson Solomon Says Goodbye to BCC


לִמְנוֹת יָמֵינוּ, כֵּן הוֹדַע; וְנָבִא, לְבַב חָכְמָה
Teach us to number our days, that we may cultivate a heart of wisdom.
Psalm 90:12

Dear Beth Chayim Chadashim Community,

Thank you for the opportunity to serve as your Rabbi this year. How fast the time has flown by!

I am grateful to have partnered with the Board and leadership of BCC and with our staff and for the collaboration of Cantor Juval. I am especially grateful to each of you, the people of BCC – for your warmth, your support and your confidence.

I look forward to sharing some of the highlights of this year with you at my Farewell Shabbat, June 5, 2020, 7:00 p.m., as part of our FIRST FRIDAY services. I will also gather and say shalom to our Ohr Chayim Youth & Young Families at our Shavuot Palooza on June 6, 2020, at 10:30 a.m.; all are welcome.

Between now and June 6, before I take the remainder of my vacation and move on to my next professional position, I welcome you to reach out, join me for Tuesday Night Torah Study or for an upcoming Shabbat experience.

I’d also love to stay in touch with you and invite you to subscribe to my monthly vlog at thisisRAS.com, follow me on FB at Reb Alyson Solomon or Instagram at thisisRabbiRAS. My email is RabbiAlyson@thisisRAS.com.

If you’d like to offer a blessing, share an encounter or teaching that’s been meaningful to you, include a photo or poem, please post it here – https://www.kudoboard.com/boards/dn7eIZX3.

My blessing for you ~

May BCC continue to be a vibrant House of New Life for all who enter her doors, whether virtual or physical. May the leadership, staff and congregational community continue to guard and grow the ways in which BCC is a place for new ideas, new friendships, new learning and new creative ways to express what it means to be a Jew today in our endlessly diverse and dynamic global community.
