In the aftermath of the massive flooding in Boulder, CO, many ALEPH members have expressed concern for Reb Zalman & Eve and other members of the Renewal community in Boulder. We are grateful to report that Reb Zalman and Eve were in LA during the deluge, and were personally unhurt - though their home suffered major damage and Reb Zalman's Rabbinical Office, Meeting Room and Prayer Room will have to be entirely reconstructed and refurnished quickly so that his and Eve's heath is not compromised by mold.

ALEPH has established a dedicated

SherylHHDLetter      Reflections on TAO
& the High Holy Days


by Sheryl Reback


Imagine finding something you didn't even know you were looking for.

Imagine a community of people of light, whose smiles, like the flames on the Shabbos candles, illuminate the room with a warm and welcoming glow.

Imagine hearing liturgy set to music for the first time, not recognizing the words or the melodies, instantly hearing them in your mind all day, and all night, humming them at first, until you suddenly realize you are singing them in the shower.

Imagine a temple without the traditional accoutrements of magnificent stained glass, a permanent arc, and a bimah with richly upholstered chairs, but one furnished with the richness of love, kindness and acceptance for each person who passes through the door.

Imagine understanding for the first time that temple is anywhere you experience the presence of God, not bound by four walls.

Imagine a congregation of people from vastly different backgrounds, coming together to pray, where each one is treated like a welcome, invited guest, whose presence will enrich the experience of every other guest there.

Imagine Shabbos services, where people come joyfully to sing and dance, to hug and be hugged, and to take a break from their daily reality to experience a different reality, one of connectivity to community, oneself and to the Divine.

Imagine a temple where it is more important to hold people than prayer books.

Imagine a family, a true family, of spiritual leadership.

Imagine the blessing of three Rabbis, a father and son, together leading the most holy of services, and a mother who, while quiet and unassuming, holds the space for the entire congregation with her gentle spirit and quiet presence, which speak louder than any words.

Imagine a traditional Rabbi, steeped in the rituals of our ancestors, sharing his voice, (which is as strong as his heart is warm), his smile, and always two outstretched arms for a hug.

Imagine next to him, his son, a young Rabbi, whose eyes shine brighter than the brightest light bulb on the darkest night, and whose words are those of a prophet. Imagine knowing that he is fulfilling his passion and his purpose as he shares it with those who come to hear his words, feeling that in every fiber of his being, he would rather be no place other than exactly where he is at that moment, touching hearts, changing lives.

Imagine the High Holidays, a time of joy and celebration, and a time of deep reflection and contemplation. Imagine that through each moment of the carefully planned services, the room is filled with a vibrational energy that emanates joy, love, forgiveness, optimism, and peace.

Imagine that instead of talk about sin and repentance, you are welcomed to the "Day of At Oneness," where you can be at one with yourself, your community and your God.

Imagine that rather than empty words of atonement, your temple is filled with the sound of drums, tambourines, guitars, pianos, flutes, violins, cello, mandolin, saxophone, and voices raised together in song.

Imagine dancing; dancing to celebrate joy, and dancing to take away our sorrow.

Imagine 600 individuals swaying as one, to the music they not only hear with their ears, but feel with their souls.

Imagine being so moved by the Rabbis and the music that you feel tears you were not aware of streaming down your cheeks while singing the Shema, knowing God is listening.

Imagine knowing that you know.

Imagine a Yizkor meditation which brings you closer to your loved ones, reminding you of just how thin the veil is between the two worlds, and that you can connect in the quiet of your mind any time....all the time.

Imagine after 9 hours of Yom Kippur services, a room full of people still laughing, smiling and wanting to dance!

Imagine the beauty of the Havdalah candles, the fragrant scent of the spices, and a community of outstretched arms, branches of intuition, reaching together as one to the stars, knowing that we are limitless, as our prophet has taught us.

Imagine the completion of the circle, as the next generation closes the most holy of services by leading the congregation in the blessing over the bread....a living example of l'dor v'dor.


I no longer have to imagine any of this. I have found it.


I have found TAO, my spiritual home.


With love and a full heart,

Sheryl Reback, 2013

"Professional" Clothing needed...

Jacci King is putting together a "closet" for her adult students that need interview clothing.  Please donate your old suits, shirts, ties, handbags, accessories, shoes and help these worthy students to get great jobs. To donate contact Jacci by clicking here. 


Donate Children's Clothes & School Supplies.

It's a new school year and Sue Reisman teaches in an extremely impoverished area.  The kids (through 8th grade)  need everything.  It's a great reason to clean your closets and offices. Pens, pencils, paper, glue sticks and on. All sizes of clothing accepted!  Let her know you'll help.


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]

GMO Alert - Corn & Weeds
Twenty years ago Monsanto genetically modified corn seeds to include the pesticide, Round-Up with the misguided intention of preventing weeds from growing.  The weed continue to plague farmers AND, Glysophate, the main ingredient of Round-Up has now been linked to birth defects, DNA damage, hormone disruption, cancer and neurological disorders.

If you have weeds, don't use Round-Up!  Get rid of weeds naturally, using boiling water, vinegar, salts or pulling the out by hand.

If you eat corn... look for Non-GMO Project Certified corn only.

Today's Parsha*
October 3, 2013
29 Tishrei 5774

God sends forth Adam and Eve from the Garden of Eden.

New adventures and possibilities unfold as you journey through life to the destiny you were born to fulfill. Moving into a new place requires a mothering of your own skills partnered with a belief in a Force deep within and beyond your local self.  It requires you to love all parts of yourself unconditionally. Only with an inner loving environment can you nurture yourself to continue growing and birthing new dimensions.

Welcome to TAO  

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

Led by Rabbi Marc Labowitz
Wednesdays, 7:00 - 8:30 PM

Next Class: Wednesday, November 6 

Parsha Study - Facilitated by Meyer Weiss, prior to Wisdom Class from 5:30 p.m. - 7:00 p.m. 
TAO's 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'.

Tree of Life Tree of Life  

Express the unique spiritual grace and energy that reflects the loving Oneness that is our Tree of Life.

Galia, Ocean and Kole Kerev 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.
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.
