Our Mission

We are a diverse, egalitarian, and inclusive community of Jews and interfaith families.  We joyfully embrace Judaism as a way of life through prayer, music, social action, celebrating Jewish holidays, lifelong learning, and life cycle events.  Through these activities, we seek to promote spiritual growth, moral values, and the social welfare of our community.

The Temple B’nai B’rith/Temple Israel Religious School has been steadfast in its commitment to our families, ensuring the continuity of our tradition and rooted in the Reform movement.   We emphasize our tasks as Reform Jews and the realities of life in today’s world, being mindful of the moral guidance of our religious heritage.

 

 

 

GOALS OF THE TEMPLE B’NAI B’RITH RELIGIOUS SCHOOL:

 

  1. To foster a strong Jewish identity in our children through a sense of belonging to k’lal Yisrael – the world Jewish community – and through knowledge of Jewish history, the holiday cycle, and traditions.
  2. To teach the centrality of Torah as a framework for the ethics and values, and to encourage each child to make a personal connection to the Torah and the concept of mitzvah.
  3. To lay the foundation for our children to become lifelong Jewish learners.
  4. To provide each child the opportunity to achieve fluency with basic Jewish liturgy in the Hebrew and become familiar with the structure of our prayer services.
  5. To help strengthen the bonds of Jewish family life.
  6. To inspire a love of Eretz Yisrael as the Jewish homeland.
  7. To support the development of Jewish educators within our community.

 

 

A well-rounded education means that our students will not only be able to articulate what it means to be Jewish but also take pride in their heritage.  A Jewish religious education here at Temple B’nai B’rith means that our students will have the resilience to meet the challenges ahead, a joy in celebrating our traditions and imbuing a sense of belonging to the Jewish people.

Presidents Letter:

Winter has really shown its true face quickly.  Mother nature fooled us giving beautiful weather then smacked us into reality.  If you can't drive in this type of weather and would like to come to Friday night services call Megan in the office and we will try to arrange a ride for you.  At least four days should be given for us to contact someone who may be available.  Not only has our own choir been doing a wonderful job at Friday night services, but the professional choir has also been a joy to listen to along with Pam Carroll our music director.

We had our first town hall meeting and our next town hall meeting to review the by-laws is scheduled at Temple for Sunday, February 11 at 9 am.  This will be the last meeting until the final vote at Temple on Sunday, March 18 at 9 am.

The last time our by-laws were updated was 2008.  This latest revision is being updated to reflect our shrinking congregation and clarify old by-laws.  I encourage all to attend and express their opinions before the vote.
