Part of Tefilah and Torah Study
Worship begins at 8:30 a.m. followed by study and discussion at 9:15 a.m.
This conversation will center around the promises to Abram at the beginning of the Torah portion: those who bless you will be blessed and those who curse you will be cursed. Rabbi Moline will discuss what it means to be a blessing and, perhaps more important, what it means to be a curse.

Please bring these items to the designated box at the Temple from November 5th through 11th.Temple Jeremiah’s contributions to this program have such a positive impact on the students.
