temple israel center presents the shaharit lecture series
Shaharit is a think tank that brings together Israelis from diverse ethnic, religious, and sociological backgrounds to create a different kind of Israeli politics by creating strong relationships and building trust. This lecture series offers a variety of speakers with unique viewpoints.
The next event is Monday, March 27, with featured speaker Tehila Nachalon Freidman, a Senior Shaharit Fellow. Click here for details about the March 27 session, and click here for an overview of the Shaharit Lecture Series.
SIDDUR LEV SHALEM
Temple Israel Center is transitioning to the Conservative Movement’s new prayerbook, Siddur Lev Shalem. We are offering our congregants the opportunity to make personal dedications (in honor of and/or in memory of...) for the siddurim. This is a beautiful way to remember, honor, or recognize someone special by passing on the Jewish text from generation to generation.
