We Need Your Cans!

Our Mensch Lab and School of Early Learning students are participating in a project to help collect cans of food for needy individuals and families.We are asking ALL members to help with this worthwhile endeavor by bringing in 1 or 2 items every time you visit the synagogue. Ideal items are fish, proteins, nut butters and fruits. Kosher designated cans are not required, but encouraged.


If you are planning an escape from the upcoming winter months, please log in to your Chaverweb account to change your address, or call the Temple office, 215-886-8000, to let us know your plans. We don’t want you to miss a thing!

ARTorah – Torah, through the eyes of an artist – and through yours!

Carefully observe text from the Hebrew Bible to discover its art, beauty, poetry and personal meaning to our lives. This is not an art class; it is a Biblical text class. No artistic talent nor Hebrew literacy is required. Tuesdays, January 7, 14, and 21. All classes will be held from 7:00-8:30 p.m. Participants must RSVP to Rhoda Ryba by January 3, rlryba@comcast.net.
