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.

Sunday Morning with Marc Lee Raphael: "The Representation of the Holocaust in Poetry"

Join us for our next Sunday Morning Speaker on Sunday, April 19 at 10:15 am. Marc Lee Raphael will address the question of whether artists can represent the Shoah for us who were not there. Many have tried - filmmakers, painters, musicians - but we will look at several poets who, in different languages, have tried to represent for us the Holocaust.

Spring Community Shabbat Dinner

Our next Community Shabbat dinner will be Friday, April 24 at 7:30 pm. Get together informally with old and new friends and to enjoy a delicious Shabbat Dinner after services. This year's dinner will be catered by Cafe Ole for the first time. The dinner will cost is $20/person as in the past, which includes dinner and wine. Register here. As with many of Micah's best events, the Community Shabbat Dinner relies on the community for its success. If you want to help set up, clean up, or register guests, please sign up to do so in your registration.
