The special Kabbalat Shabbat service begins at 6:00 pm. It includes the Consecration of our newest Religious School students and a celebration of Simchat Torah accompanied by the Friday Night Live Band. Following services there is an Oneg Shabbat sponsored by Temple Sisterhood.
On Saturday, October 24, from 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm Temple will participate in Social Action at The Sanctuary @ Mt. Calvary Church, 4751 Walgreen Rd, Jacksonville. This Tikkun Olam event is for the whole family! We are currently collecting specific food items (rice, dried beans, canned corn and green beans, Jiffy corn bread mix) to create food bags for the hungry homeless. Read more in the flyer.
The Temple will host Rabbi Kerry Olitzky, Executive Director of Big Tent Judaism, a national, independent trans-denominational organization reaching out to Jewish families. He will address today's challenges, which include how temples and synagogues can more effectively reach out to communities around them and respond to their needs. This program is brought to us by Dr. Larry and Kathy Kanter and their Fund for Jewish Preservation. Read more information in the flyer

Adult Hebrew Classes
Adult Intermediate Hebrew Class Wednesdays at 7 pm beginning October 28, Laurie Simmons, Instructor
Do you want to become more fluent reading prayers? Would you like to have a better understanding of the prayers? The goal of this class is to provide an opportunity for Hebrew reading practice at an intermediate level starting with a review using Aleph Isn't Tough which focuses on prayers. When the class is ready, we will move to the next text in that seriesAleph Isn’t Enough. This will consist of the introduction of additional Hebrew roots, the introduction of new vocabulary to further develop comprehension skills, beginning translation skills using sacred text, and it also has the ability to add an introduction of the practice of Torah study.
