TONIGHT IS TEN DAYS, WHICH IS ONE WEEK AND THREE DAYS, OF THE OMER
The essence of being Jewish for me centers on the celebration of Shabbat. Shabbat enables me to take a step back from everyday life, and to pause, recharge and reconnect to the divine. The ritual of observing Shabbat at Temple Beth Abraham is especially comforting, where the supportive atmosphere fostered by Rabbi David and Cantor Margot allows me to turn my gaze inward and then upward, to meditate on the lessons of the Torah, and to draw closer to Adonai.
At Temple Beth Abraham our Jewish backgrounds are diverse. We are made up of families and individuals of all types, including interfaith and LGBTQ. We offer worship services in both the Reform and Conservative traditions. Our building is fully handicapped-accessible, and we believe that every Jewish child deserves a Jewish education, no matter their learning style or challenges. We take pride in our Tikkun Olam program, which provides projects and social action activities for all ages in all seasons. We have a dynamic and innovative Religious School with award-winning faculty, and we offer an active and vibrant adult education program for life-long learning. more
