TONIGHT IS THIRTEEN DAYS, WHICH IS ONE WEEK AND SIX DAYS, OF THE OMER
Being Jewish to me means being very family oriented. When at Temple being with a community of loving and caring people. Feeling at peace listening to the Rabbi and Cantor also while praying out loud or silently. Knowing that nothing can happen while I am at Temple. Making new friends and helping when I can, no matter the age. Knowing how I feel or how I believe does not matter, I am accepted for me. Being Jewish is accepting people in your life who have different beliefs or different ideas how they want to live their life. Being Jewish to me is the most wonderful feeling and knowing no one can take that away.
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
