Next Winter Break in Jerusalem!
Join Rabbi Daniel and Cindy Weiner in Israel
December 21, 2014 -January 1, 2015
Registration Now Open for Arza World Trip to Jerusalem
Dear Temple Families,
Some of the most transformative and rewarding experiences I’ve had as a rabbi occurred while sharing trips to Israel with committed member families. Few things feed a sense of adventure and inspire a love and passion for Judaism more than traveling together to Israel, and sharing once-in-a-lifetime moments with others in our community. Bonds are forged, identity formed and a blending of history, destiny and renewed purpose fills the soul. I warmly and excitedly invite you to join with my family as we embark on a journey of heart, mind and spirit.
This year in Jerusalem, Daniel and Cindy Weiner
Bringing Our Temple Family Together
Members have been asking Temple to alert them when fellow congregant families experience the death of loved ones. In response, Temple is implementing a new alert program via email. In the event of a death, members will receive an email with the name of the affected congregants, plus any funeral, memorial, shiva or donation information provided. Of course members can opt out of having notifications sent on their behalf in the event of a death, as well as opt out of receiving any death notification emails.
