Our New Torah Dedication Event - April 5, 2019

We had a wonderful TORAH DEDICATION on Friday April 5th! Community Shabbat is a special event on its own and on that special Friday we had a momentous reason to celebrate!

We had a joyous Kabbalat Shabbat service followed by a procession of singing and dancing to welcome our new Sefer Torah into our sanctuary!

Judy Shemirani, Malka Shemirani, and Shuly Rokach supplied a wonderful dinner that followed the installation and service.

We thank them all for their generosity.

Connecting Jews to Torah and to Each Other


We are a community where tradition is felt, compassion practiced, nature appreciated, perspective gained, and friendships formed. Through services and the study of Torah, through activities and social gatherings, through the Learning Center, we rise to our higher selves, individually and together.
