Temple Israel kicks off 2015 with exciting events for all ages, interests
Kick off 2015 with Temple Israel, which in January will present a variety of musical, thought-provoking and educational events sure to appeal to a range of ages and interests. Starting out on a high note January 10th will be the seventh annual Winter Jewish Music Concert, presenting the best of Jewish music – Yiddish, Ladino, Israeli, Sephardic, cantorial, classical, jazz, folk, pop, and more – by acclaimed performers from around the country. The next day, recording artist Peri Smilow and award-winning Jewish a capella college group Tizmoret will give a rousing performance for audiences of all ages. On January 25th, hear bestselling author Dr. Raymond Moody, a medical doctor and doctor of philosophy who The New York Times calls “the father of near-death experiences,” speak on “Life After Life.” To mark the 70th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz and International Holocaust Remembrance Day on January 27th, Temple Israel will host A Holocaust Seder, an intergenerational, interfaith event that will include readings, music and excerpts of videoed interviews with congregants who are spouses or children of survivors. Join us for one or all of these amazing events.
Temple Israel remembers Dr. King
Temple Israel will honor the memory and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in song and worship Friday, Jan. 16, with a 6:30 p.m. Service of the Heart and 7:30 p.m. Shabbat evening service, led by Rabbi Heyn. Both services will feature musical guests Mel Dancy, an accomplished jazz pianist and lyricist, and Tree Top, a South Florida blues, soul and R&B veteran, of the Overtown Music Project. Also performing at our Shabbat service will be the Temple Israel Singers, accompanied by director of music Dr. Alan Mason. Oneg and shmooze follow. All are welcome!Read More
Temple Israel’s Season of Giving is well under way. Sisterhood reached out and sent to our congregation's away-from-home college students Chanukah Care Packages. And because this is a time when many of us like to spread holiday cheer to those who need it most, Temple Israel is again having a Toy Drive to benefit families at Chapman Partnership: Empowering the Homeless and a Volunteer Night Christmas Eve to serve dinner, distribute gifts and mingle with Chapman families. Please join us to brighten someone's holiday - and yours!
