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 the Sixth Grade's Underwear Drive

The sixth grade's annual underwear drive to benefit Friendship Place has been enormously successful! They collected a record number of donated items that Friendship Place needs to make their work possible. The best part, though, is that it's not too late to help! You can come get a bag and return it full of new underwear until November 4. Check out the Underwear Drive for more information, a shopping list, and photos of the sixth grade's success!

Revisit the Words of Our Rabbis from the High Holy Days

If you enjoyed or were moved by the words of our Rabbis during this year's High Holy Days services, you can now revisit them. Rabbi Zemel's Erev Rosh Hashanah sermon, "Israel: The Place I Love that Does Not Love Me in Return", is available here . His Kol Nidre sermon, "To Live in Covenant," is available here . Rabbi Lederman's Rosh Hashanah sermon, "The World is a Narrow Bridge," can be found here. Enjoy!

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.
