As the school year winds down, we hope you will help us to celebrate the hard work of our 2017-18 religious school teachers and wish a fond farewell to our graduating seniors. At this special Share Shabbat, come for the service and stay for the potluck dinner with friends. RSVP online or call the Temple office at 496-0050 to reserve your place. Teachers, madrichim, and high school seniors attend for free, but reservations are required by May 2.
We will explore historical and modern Israel through themes of interfaith work, integrity, wholeness, and striving for a better future. After the opening sussion at 9:00 a.m., the day will be divided into 40-minute learning blocks each dedicated to one of four themes: Interfaith, Work, Integrity, Wholesness and To a Better Future. The Day of Learning is free of charge and open to the public. A light lunch will be served. Please RSVP to Temple.

Pjs, Prayer and Play!
It is so important to make sure that we have experiences not just for our school-age children, teens, and adults but also for our youngest. It is the goal of Rabbi Sobo to make sure that while we are nourishing our adult learners that our pint-sized learners have an age-appropriate means to engage with our tradition and peers in the community. To that end, she is starting a series of special Shabbat programs geared towards families with not-yet-school-aged children. The goal is to create age-appropriate, Jewishly-rich and fun-filled experiences, by offering more casual ways for us to engage with each other. God never said we have to dress fancy to pray! So come in your most comfy PJs, if you so choose and engage in a song-filled kid-friendly service and then stick around and play together. RSVP’s strongly preferred to the Temple office.
