Temple Beth Torah,

 

  • Bring your menorahs and candles to join in a special Chanukah celebration  at Temple Beth Torah on Friday, December 23, the first night of Chanukah.

    The celebration begins at 7:00 PM. Dan Gordon, the rabbi will lead a special Shabbat service that will include the telling of the Chanukah story. The prayers for the first night of Chanukah will be recited, followed by a community lighting of menorahs. It is a breath-taking site to see so many menorahs with candles aglow.

     

  • While the focal point of the holiday season is Christmas celebrating the birth of Christ, the season of lights, and Jesus's biggest fan, St. Nicholas, there is another festival that also celebrates light, the Jewish holiday of Hanukkah.

     

  • Temple Beth Torah's Shabbat evening service on Friday, April 29, at 7:15 p.m. will pay tribute to those who perished in the Holocaust and honor the survivors with a Holocaust Memorial Service .

  • Temple Beth Torah will celebrate the holiday of Passover with a seder, the traditional festival meal, on Monday, April 18, 2011. The community seder will be led by Rabbi Dan Gordon, of Temple Beth Torah.

    Seder is a word that means "order," and there are several rituals throughout the evening to help teach the story of the Exodus from Egypt. Gordon will tell the story of Passover using the traditional book called the Haggadah, enhancing the rituals with a variety of stories and teachings. It is an evening filled with fun and learning for all ages.
