An act of faith created a community that needs your help to grow
Saluting Rabbi Michael Barclay at 60!
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.
