TONIGHT IS TWENTY DAYS, WHICH IS TWO WEEKS AND SIX DAYS, OF THE OMER
“Community” is the first word that comes to my mind when asked “What does it mean to be Jewish?”
I love being Jewish. It means that I am never alone because I belong to a global community of people that will always welcome each other. I always feel comfortable and accepted among my Temple congregants at TBA.
I trust being Jewish. It is filled with traditions and rituals that I can depend on, but have the freedom to participate to whatever extent meets my spiritual needs. I enjoy passing on traditions and adding new ones with my own family in hopes they will be carried on for many generations.
I am proud to be Jewish. Being Jewish is a journey filled with challenges to try to live a righteous life and to make the world a better place. Being Jewish makes me mindful about my life and makes me a better person. Being Jewish fills my being and my spirit with joy and allows me to be at peace with myself and the world around me.
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
