Getting to Know...

Rabbi Deborah A. Hirsch
Interim Senior Rabbi

If you've spent any time with Rabbi Hirsch you know that she cares deeply about Shaaray Tefila, its congregants and those who may wish to become congregants. But what does she do in her down time and how did a 1974 trip to a kibbutz lead Rabbi Hirsch to Shaaray Tefila?

Opportunities for Connection

Israel Discussion Forum
with Rabbi Gabby Dagan

Monday, October 27 at 7:30 pm
How do we pray for Israel in "Rainy Days”?

A rainy day can represent a blessing or a challenge.

Can we turn the "dark clouds" looming over Israel into a blessing?

Rabbi Dagan will analyze some Jewish texts relating the prayer for rain to Israel-Diaspora relationships, and the challenges facing the Jewish people.

An open discussion will follow the text study.
