The first services of Gesher Lit’filah were led by creators Rabbi Gersh Zylberman, Saul Ryan, Karen Rosauer and Gersh Lazarow (not then a rabbi). Life and opportunity took Gersh, Karen and Gersh overseas over the next few years, but the seeds they had planted grew and grew.

Now affectionately known simply as “Gesher”, the community continues to gather for Shacharit Service on the second Saturday of each month in the Friedlander Synagogue at TBI.
