It’s now easier than ever to get your spiritual fix
We’re super excited to launch this new site with a fresh look and features, but our goal is still the same! We want to get our message out to not only our congregation, but to also reach more people. This allows us to extend our community while providing information, resources and support to our current members.
Today, we want to take some time and introduce our new site to you:
Who We Are
What’s in a name? In our case, everything.
When you head over to our website, one of the first things you’ll notice is our name, Temple Solel. The word Solel means pathfinder and that’s what we aim to be for today’s Jewish people.
We help our members connect to Judaism and create “GPS Systems” for fostering spiritual growth, ongoing learning, and determining how to respond to the challenges of modern-day life. We offer worship services, creative musical programs, youth education and programming, continuing Jewish education, social justice and environmental care programs, life cycle celebrations, and many other services that all work toward building your connection to Judaism and Jewish people.
Let our website be your guide to all things Temple Solel. You can read much more about our history, programs, and special Jewish events, plus you can find out where and how to volunteer or donate.
What’s Our Mission
As you peruse through our information, you will learn loads about us, including our purpose. The values of Judaism radiate through everything we do. We believe Judaism is the:
- Heart – communal worship and individual spirituality.
- Head – learning opportunities for everyone.
- Hand – activism in the larger community and social justice.
- Hospitality – the creation of a community where everyone is welcome and valued.
And we strive to keep all of these at the core of everything we do.
We also believe in education and its importance in making progress in the world. Lifelong learning is what we call it and we offer classes ranging from Early Childhood Education and K-12 School of Living Judaism, to adult continuing education classes. Here, students can learn Hebrew, Jewish traditions and culture, plus much more!
How to Get Started
There are numerous ways to get involved in our Jewish community. Whether you join us for Shabbat services Friday evening and Saturday morning, Saturday morning Torah study with the rabbi, Israeli dancing with the cantor, lifelong Jewish learning, or socializing at an event, we welcome you with open arms!
Stop by an event or schedule a time to come in and take a tour–we’re here to help you get involved!
