SpaDayFollowupTAO's 5th Annual Spa Day...
Cudos, Comments & Pictures 

TAO Spa Day is to my body what Yom Kippur is to my soul: a Day of physical At-One-Ment that I spend immersed in gentle tranquility and sacred space with my TAO family. Beyond what is considered as pampering - a luxury of vanity and self indulgence - the day takes on the aura of a quieted journey of inner retrospection for discovering awareness in those parts of my physical being that I too often take for granted or simply ignore. It's far too infrequent that I allow for a complete day of gentle rest and guided awareness to awaken me to the subtle signals my body sends to my brain and that sadly gets drowned amid the static of internal chatter, obsessing, and thinking.

Additionally - and this is perhaps just as important - the down time spent together at Spa Day enables me to converse meaningfully with members of my TAO family who I joyfully greet when I see them at services, but who I have not have the opportunity to really get to know at a deeper, more authentic level of understanding.

Spa Day is a time to hit the pause button on "doing" and simply just "be".
- Steve Weisberg

TAO's Adopted Family
An important part of living a Jewish life is to offer tzedaka and chesed - charity and loving kindness.  With this in mind, TAO has adopted a family through the Touch A Heart Foundation.
How can you help? You can make a call and say hello, or maybe stop by for a visit.  If possible, you could bring some groceries or cleaning supplies; maybe think of them when you see the 'Buy One Get One' deals at the local market. There is no gesture too small or too large for this needy family.

If you are interested in helping this family in any way, please call Renee at 954-888-1408 or by email at [email protected]
Give Tzedaka 
TAO Gives Back  

We are proud to contribute our efforts, time and dollars to help the community.


TAO increased our level of support to Kolot - JFS organization to end Domestic Abuse in the Jewish Community.  


TAO supported Touch A Heart Foundation by adopting a family  - a grandmother and two grandsons for next year.

RM Shabbat

We are a warm expression of joyful Judaism, with meaningful ritual and universal Truths rooted in Torah, Kabbalah and other traditional & mystic Jewish sources.  We draw deeply from communal wisdom and spiritual traditions in accordance with the ongoing process of the living Torah. 
TAO stands for Temple Adath Or. Our founding rabbi, Rabbi Shoni Labowitz, used great intention in choosing this name, as in Hebrew it means People (or community) of Light.  And whether the members were drawn to the name, or simply just lived up to it, TAO is, indeed, a community of light.

Embark on a journey to your Jewish soul through music, dance, chanting and meditation.  This is not your parents' schul!  Come and experience the warmth of Jewish Renewal - and community - TAO style.

Kabbalah Wisdom Class - is an entry point to a soulful, mystical, and purposeful life. In learning to live a life seen through the lens of Kabbalah, we become attuned to looking deeper and finding meaning.  


At TAO, we see the hidden wisdom of Kabbalah as one of the keys that unlock an empowered, conscious existence. Each class is a combination of music, discussion and lecture designed to unravel these veiled depths of liturgy and prayer so that they become accessible, meaningful and useful in daily life.  There is no need to bring anything special, only a thirst for insight, friendship and levity.  This is a stimulating, spiritual circle of like-minded seekers of truth led by Rabbi Marc Labowitz. 


Join us Wednesday nights 7pm at Posnack JCC and taste the sweetness of this millennial-old knowledge brought to life by Rabbi Marc and observe how the world becomes a 'sweeter place'.

Sponsor An Oneg Shabbat Gut Shabbos

Let's face it.  We love our oneg.  We love it not only because we're Jews and we love to eat, we love it because it brings us together and creates a space for us to catch up with, and hug, one another.


When you celebrate your birthday, anniversary, promotion; or say thank you to, or honor someone special by sponsoring a Friday night or Saturday Service Oneg Shabbat, your message of love is heard by all who are there and we all share in your joy.  (And the food is so much better!)  So  celebrate your simchas with your community!


(By the way, sponsoring an oneg is a great way to promote your business.  Rabbi Marc will personally acknowledge and thank you for your contribution at services and, it's advertised in this newsletter.)


Full and partial sponsorships are possible.   


To sponsor an upcoming Oneg,

Tikkun Olam Tikkun Olam
(Heal the World) 

TAO cares about your health and that of the earth.  Check here weekly for useful tips that save money, conserve resources and protect both you and our precious planet. 

Here are some cool ways to clean and deodorize your home that are safe for you, your kids and your pets!
  • Deodorize dry carpets by sprinkling liberally with baking soda. Wait at least 15 minutes, then vacuum.
  • To rid your garbage disposal of foul smells, add vinegar to water for ice cubes, then let a few of them get chopped by your disposal.
  • To clean your silver, boil 2-3 inches of water in a shallow pan with 1 teaspoon of salt, 1 teaspoon of baking soda, and a sheet of aluminum foil. Totally submerge silver and boil for 2-3 minutes more. Remove silver from the pan and wipe away the tarnish with a clean cotton cloth.
Galia, Ocean and Kole Funds 
In the spirit of Tzedakah, Paulina and Rabbi Marc set up three funds at TAO - a Galia fund, an Ocean fund and Kole Fund. When you share your sweetness to celebrate Galia's birthday (December 6), Ocean's birthday (June 28) or Kole's birthday (June 24) and other occasions, please donate to one of these funds rather than buying gifts for the children.  These funds are used to send toys and other needed items to Jewish and non-Jewish organizations that serve children, including Jafco.

Paulina and Rabbi Marc will be informed that you gifted their children and performed an act of Tzedakah in their honor.

Donate to Galia, Ocean or Kole fund for this tax deductible gift.
