Welcome to Temple Ohabei Shalom

Message from our Rabbis and our Health and Safety Committee:

We are thankful that all members of our community aged 16+ are finally eligible for a COVID-19 vaccine.  As a Jewish community, we uphold the preservation of life (pikuach nefesh) as our guiding value. Each of us is responsible for one another, and we are so grateful for the blessing of safe and effective vaccines which can help us protect ourselves and one another.  If you can safely receive a COVID-19 vaccine and are eligible to receive it, please do so as soon as possible. May this vaccine, along with continued vigilance with mitigation measures, enable us to begin a new chapter of health, wellness, and connection after this immensely difficult year.  None of us are safe until all of us are safe.  Click here for more information about getting a COVID-19 vaccine.

Circle of Giving

Today, we are asking for your support to complete the Circle of Giving. The Circle of Giving, our annual appeal, supports our impactful worship services, distinctive brand of education, enriching programming and the warm embrace of community offered to all. Like many nonprofit organizations, TOS has not been spared the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic. Thanks to our community and a few loyal and devoted Lamed Vavniks*, over the past eighteen months we have been able to survive, and even thrive. Please give what you can to help us connect with and support one another, celebrate holidays and life cycle events in unique ways, and keep our schools open and safe for children and families.  Give HERE

*Jewish lore holds that at any time in history there are 36 righteous people who are quietly responsible for saving the world. These are the Tzadikim Nistarim (hidden righteous ones), also known as the Lamed Vavniks (Lamed is 30 and Vav is 6). Our goal is for at least 36 family units to pledge at least $36,000 to be paid over a period of one, two, or three years. These contributions will be applied to sustaining ongoing Temple operations, the TOS Hineini and Sanctuary Funds, the TOS endowment.Contact Larry Green, Development Committee Chair, for more information.
