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.

A fund-raising celebration
