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.

Support Temple Micah by Sending Honey from the Heart

Support Temple Micah while wishing your family, friends and business associates a "Sweet and Healthy New Year" by sending a jar of honey. Honey from the Heart's distinctive 8-ounce jar of kosher honey arrives in time for the Rosh Hashanah holiday, decorated with a festive label, and includes a personalized card reading "L'Shana Tova-Wishing you a Healthy and Happy New Year". This card also lets the recipients know that a donation has been made in their honor to Temple Micah. Each jar costs $11. Order here by July 13 to receive free shipping.

Order Your Mishkan HaNefesh in Time for Rosh Hashanah

We will begin using Mishkan HaNefesh, the new machzor (High Holy Day Prayerbook) of the Reform Movement, when we celebrate the High Holy Days this September. We are placing an order now to be certain everyone who needs a new machzor will have one in time for Rosh Hashanah. We will have only a very limited number of "loaner" books available at High Holy Day services. 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 costs $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.

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.
