Children are Welcome
We are a child friendly congregation and love that you bring your children to temple on High Holy Days!
Children are welcome to pray, sing and dance with us. When we're sitting, please have children sit with you in a seat and not on the floor in the aisles due to safety regulations.

 

We have also become aware that Yizkor and the Rabbi's sermon do not enhance your children's experiences. To assure everyone has the most connected holy day, please step outside with your young children or take them to the babysitting room during Yizkor and sermons. Doors are closed during sermons, so please enter and leave prior to or following the sermon.

Tzedakah and Mitzvot 
At this most holy of days and Teshuvah, show your concern for those less fortunate by bringing gently used clothes or canned food to each High Holy Day Service. There will be a drop-off area near the registration desks. God Bless you for helping those less able to help themselves.

Saturday, October 15- Sukkot Havdallah
Members Only Event

  

7pm -Rabbi Marc and Paulina's home

  

membersonly
Celebrate the "Season of Rejoicing" TAO style. Join TAO as we experience a communion with nature and commemorate the divine protection that we received after the departure from Egypt. As we sit communally in the Sukkah we are grateful for the abundance of the land and the harvest. We feel our vulnerability, yet we feel safe because we sense God's surrounding presence. We celebrate the simplicity of life's joys and experience intimacy, fun and mystical awakening as we come to recognize that the most important possession we must acquire and earn during our brief time on earth is the connection to God. Please bring a parve or vegetarian dish. RSVP to TAO office - 954-888-1408
