Temple Life

"One can be a Jew with God or against God, but not without God"

We join together on Shabbat, holidays and especially on Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur to "daven" - a Yiddish word which means "wandering." Our souls wander to the past and to the future, we transcend ourselves and become "architects of time." Through songs and stories we renew our covenant with those who are no longer here and those who are not yet born. "Davka" - in spite of history - we give meaning to history, we search for meaning in life, and we remind ourselves and our children that there is a spark of God in every human being.
