    Twenty years ago, Rabbi Keith Stern came to Temple Beth Avodah. Together we created a brit, a covenant, based on trust, openheartedness, and an abiding love for our sacred tradition. That dynamic brit has grown stronger and deeper over the years. We are all thrilled and honored to celebrate our twenty years together. 
     
    We deeply respect and appreciate Rabbi Stern. What better way to mark this milestone, his twenty years of service, than to pay tribute to Rabbi Stern by investing in the future of our temple.  
     
    This is a time to celebrate the present and to fearlessly embrace the future. There is so much more to be done. Join us in this opportunity to say thank you to Rabbi Stern by making the next years for TBA even better as we move from strength to strength. Thank you.
