Temple Israel news

Temple Israel marked Tisha B’Av by sitting in the candlelit darkness on the floor in the hall of the Pinelands Jewish Cemetery, studying, chanting Eicha (Lamentations) and marking the destruction and loss both personal and of our people in history and today. At the conclusion we walked with candles to the graves of our founding rabbinic couple, Rabbi Dr David and Bertha Sherman, and recited psalms at their gravesite.

Temple Israel gathered for a Vision Forum on Sunday the 6th of August to feedback the findings of the #FutureProgressive Focus Groups that were conducted in early 2023.  Consultant Robbie Cowan reported to the community and Suzelle DIY, our MC, raised the humour levels.  More info to be reported in the coming weeks, so watch this space.
