A little over a year ago Team Tifereth Israel Synagogue signed free agent, all-star strike thrower Josh Dorsch, to a multi-year contract.
In free agency, Dorsch fielded offers from all across the country, but opted for the sunshine in San Diego. Along with his wife Stephanie and their son Nadav, Dorsch has been received with open arms.
In his first Fall Classic, playing before sell-out crowds, Dorsch knocked the ball out of the park with his warmth, openness, and enthusiasm. His engaging and spiritual sermons made their mark as a series of home runs. The fans have lauded his first season as a smashing success.
During the weekend of August 10th-12th, Tifereth Israel will formally install Rabbi Dorsch as the Rabbi of Tifereth Israel Synagogue. All of the weekend’s details may be found at tiferethisrael.com.
Following the installation ceremony, as he begins his second season, Dorsch will take the mound at Petco Park to throw the ceremonial first pitch at a game between the Philadelphia Phillies and the San Diego Padres. No matter the outcome of the game, we know that Rabbi Dorsch will continue to hit it out of the park at TIS!
