New Rabbi at TBZ brings transformative vision
By Joyce Kryszak
Buffalo, NY – Temple Beth Zion in Buffalo and Amherst has a new senior Rabbi. Rabbi Gary Pokras began his tenure on July 1. But the Rabbi is already shaking things up with innovative ways of transforming WNY's largest Reform Jewish congregation.
WBFO's Joyce Kryszak spoke with Rabbi Pokras about his vision. He said the models from the 1950's don't work today. But Rabbi Pokras said that creates new opportunities for creating a Holy community.
