Temple Beth Shalom
Passover has arrived. It is our hope that you and your family will enjoy a peaceful, meaningful, and fulfilling celebration of this holiday. On these days we retell the story of our people’s departure from Egypt as they went from slavery and degradation to freedom and praise. May we all, in this season, make the most of our opportunities to get unstuck from our bad habits, acknowledge the blessings of our lives, and find ways to work for a world where everyone will be free and live in peace.
From the Rabbi's Desk
Light is one of the most powerful symbols in Jewish life. Light is the first thing created by God and is used to describe God's presence, goodness and wisdom. Light is one of our most pervasive ritual "objects" as we follow the sun's circuits and cycles and use the kindling of lights as the way of marking the beginning of holy time.
