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.

Order Your Mishkan HaNefesh in Time for Rosh Hashanah

This year for High Holy Days, Temple Micah will have fully transitioned to using Mishkan HaNefesh, the new machzor (High Holy Day Prayerbook) of the Reform Movement. If you plan to attend High Holy Days at Temple Micah this year, you must order a set of Mishkan HaNefesh. We will not have sufficient "loaner" books available for members to use.

If you have not yet ordered a set of Mishkan HaNefesh, please do so now if you plan to attend. To order your set, please fill out this order form and return it with payment by August 1, 2015. Each set is now $40. When the new books arrive, we will notify you to pick them up. Prayerbooks must be picked up at Temple Micah prior to the High Holy Days. Please note: If you ordered your set of Mishkan HaNefesh in the winter, we expect to receive your set in the coming weeks. Please keep an eye out out for more information.

Lunch and Learn with Ruth Schimel: Choose Courage: Step Into the Life You Want

Ruth Schimel, Ph.D., Consultant, Speaker, and Writer Participate in this month's Lunch and Learn program to appreciate and extend your capacity for courage.  You’ll hear your power and potential through Ruth Schimel’s new, feasible 21st century definition based on her doctoral research supporting her book, "Choose Courage: Step into the Life You Want." This inspiring, yet practical, definition of how most people can uncover and express their courage also shows ways to help others develop and use their courage in professional and personal life.

Lunch and Learn takes place on Wednesday, August 12 from 12:00 - 2:00 PM in the downstairs Atrium at the temple.  For just $5 you can enjoy a homemade lunch of soup, salad, bread, dessert, and tea/coffee, followed by a presentation from someone of interest to the group. There will always be time for discussion and questions following the presentation.  Transportation will be provided where possible if you indicate the need on registration.

Please register for the upcoming event by three days before the event.  RSVP required.

Help Us Remember Departed Micah Members

We are asking for your help. To honor Micah's history, we are developing a complete, permanent and accurate Yizkor list of the names and years of death of everyone who was a member of Temple Micah when he or she passed away. We have recommended to the Board of Directors and the membership that the temple inscribe these names on crystal panels that will be mounted in front of the glass blocks in the corners of the sanctuary. Please help us ensure the list we have is complete and accurate. Please review this list and check the names and dates of death for your loved ones. Let us know whether there are spelling errors or other mistakes, whether the names are listed in the manner you prefer, whether we missed anyone who died while they were members of the temple, or whether you notice any other problem.
