Together We Celebrate

Mon, 03/06/2017 - 3:15pm -- Cschrager

The Installation of Rabbi Joel M. Mosbacher 
as Senior Rabbi of Temple Shaaray Tefila
Join us for a Weekend of 
Meaning | Connection | Purpose

Rabbi Mosbacher is committed to a three-part vision for our congregation: MEANING, CONNECTION & PURPOSE

MEANING recognizes that there is substance to the texts of Torah that can apply to our lives today and that can help us make decisions in the best and most challenging moments of our lives.

CONNECTION acknowledges that we cannot live alone; that we need to be in community; that especially in the 21st century, being connected to each other face to face matters; that being a part of the Jewish people worldwide matters.

PURPOSE reminds us that the world as it is doesn’t have to be this way and that religion, at its best, is about making the world better because we are in it.
