Family service 6pm at Lake Poway Park with cara freedman

It's magical to welcome Shabbat watching the sunset over Lake Poway.  Cara Freedman and Rav Nadav will lead us in a family friendly service (there are even two playgrounds!).  Bring your own picnic, and we'll provide challah and some pizza.  When entering the park, continue driving past the parking lot on your left, and then take your first left after that small playground (also on your left).  We'll gather atop that little slope overlooking the Lake.  We need to be there at 6pm because they close the park just after sunset!

Rosh Chodesh summer party @7pm saturday night

Ladies of Ner Tamid!


Please join me Saturday night at 7pm for our mid-summer Rosh Chodesh party! We will be in my backyard, so you might want a sweater (there is a heater and fire pit also, but it is July!). As usual, it will be a (vegetarian/parve) potluck. No other agenda - just come, meet other women, and have fun!


Please RSVP (to and let me know you're coming and what you're bringing.
