To connect Jews to Torah

and to each other

What does this mean?  Our world is increasingly secular.  Our time is taken up, stolen perhaps, by the rush of incoming messages and available distractions: email, social media, television and cable, sports, work and many, many more activities.

Ner Tamid offers a community where Judaism doesn't have to fight to be felt.  Through services and the study of Torah, through activities and social gatherings, through the Learning Center, we can explore our identities as Jews; individually and together.
