The impossible story of Temple Ner Simcha

• For 1,800 years, synagogues were free and supported by their congregations; Temple Ner Simcha has returned to that tradition.

• The largest provider of free High Holy Day services in the nation: no member dues or pay-to-pray services. Including:

• Shabbat and holiday services

• Adult Education: Judaism 101

• Talmud & Tobacco

• Bar and Bat Mitzvah

• Mommy & Me classes

• Religious School

• Interfaith programs

• Community celebrations, concerts and guest speakers, from Jerusalem, London, New York and more.

• A post-denominational approach spanning Orthodox, Conservative and Reform traditions: a 21st Century, panoramic insight into Judaism.


How is this possible?

Because we believe in our community to support it,

with each person giving in their own way.

With plenty of entertainment…
