Learn more about Temple Micah.

 

Our Micah

As a spirited congregation led by a visionary rabbi, we are unafraid to break the mold to create a Judaism infused with meaning and relevance. Together, we attempt to answer the question of what it means to live a fully American and a fully Jewish life. Temple Micah is a welcoming Jewish home where you can bring your whole self and be your best self. We approach our Judaism with a lightness of heart and a sense of humor. In everything we do, we challenge ourselves to do better. To us, Reform is a verb. 

Machon Micah Registration is Now Open

Registration for the 2014-2015 year is now open for grades K-12! Families enrolling a child for the first time in Machon Micah need to first attend a new parent orientation meeting with our Director of Congregational Learning, Rabbi Josh Beraha. Please register as early as possible, as it makes our planning so much easier! We're looking forward to a wonderful year of learning with you.

Register for K-7th grade.

Register for 8th-12th grade teen classes and programs.

High Holy Day Tickets

High Holy days tickets are now available, and you can sign up for your tickets and related services. Be aware that our usual parking lot has closed for construction, so please monitor this website for updated information about alternatives.  Should you have any questions, please contact the High Holiday Chairs.  Check out our High Holy Day Services web section for more detailed information about all aspects of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur.

Prayers of Awe: New Volume

Rabbi Zemel has contributed an essay on the fascinating subject of universalism and particularism - and the High Holy Day in a book entitled "All the World": Universalism and Particularism and the High Holy Days (Lawrence A. Hoffman, ed., Jewish Lights Publishing - you can pre-order for August delivery at www.jewishlights.com). It is Volume 5 of the truly outstanding series on the prayers of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur entitled Prayers of Awe. Rabbi Zemel has an essay in every book in the series. The entire series is highly recommended. As we enter summer, please consider any of these volumes as a great summer read.
