Once a month, we welcome a band into our sanctuary for Shabbat Live Services, which adds to our musical repertoire and deepens our joy. We bless those who are having birthday and anniversaries.
On Shabbat mornings when there is no bar or bat mitzvah ceremony, we have an informal service in our small chapel. It is a “come as you are” worship experience, during which Rabbi Salkin always discusses the meanings of the prayers. It is an experience that brings head and heart together.
Rabbi Salkin is one of the best known leaders in Reform Judaism today, and he fills his messages with wisdom, joy – and sometimes controversy.
With the Days of Awe (The High Holy Days) just around the corner, we have thought about what this coming season really means. It is a season of renewal — of spiritual, personal, moral, and communal renewal.
What is the most dominant image of the Days of Awe? Gates — the passage ways that led us into the ancient Temple in Jerusalem, and the entrance paths of our prayers to the heavens.
We no longer have “tickets.” We have keys — keys that will open up our gates to renewal.
Here is your key — not only to the experience of the Days of Awe, but to the unfolding experience of deep religious and communal life here at Temple Solel.
This year, may we help you find the key that will unlock your soul.
Whatever you are searching for – in your connection to God, the Jewish people, Jewish ideas, Jewish texts, your soul – you will find it at Temple Solel.
