Ladies of Ner Tamid! 


We're taking Ner Tamid on the road again! Have you been to Sababa Kitchen yet? It's in the new Del Sur shopping center near Sprouts, 16415 Paseo Del Sur, 92127. It's DELICIOUS.  They also have live music, so we'll get some entertainment (besides ourselves ;-)


Join me Thursday, August 24 at 6pm.  We'll be out on the patio, so you might want to bring a sweater. I'd appreciate RSVPs (to, but feel free to show up unannounced. :)     L'shalom, Marisa

Join Rabbi Caine in Carmel Mountail for Menashe

Rabbi Caine will be going to the Tuesday 5:25pm showing of the first Yiddish movie (with a 90+ rating in reviews!) in decades, Menashe, at the Angelika theater in Carmel Mountain!  To join him, get your tickets (as the 30 seat theater will sell out fast) by clicking here.

Guided Imagery Meditation

is coming to Ner Tamid!

Guided Imagery Meditation is a gentle and relaxing technique that focuses the attention and imagination on a peaceful setting. Also known as visualization, this practice is not only wonderful for relaxation but can also help with many other concerns such as stress and/or anxiety. Please join me for one, two, or all three of the upcoming sessions that I’ll be guiding on September 17th, October 8th, and October 22nd. Each session is 30 minutes and begins at 9:15am. Bring a yoga mat or blanket to ensure comfort, and please reach out to me should you have any thoughts or questions.

Sessions are donation-based; all proceeds will go to Ner Tamid.
