Shabbat Service “Growing Together: Two Temples Across the Sea”
January 16 @ 10:15 am - 12:00 pm
Ottawa has a long standing connection to the Israeli communities of the north. At Temple we pride ourselves in the personal connections that we have made. Temple has been “paired’ with a new reform synagogue in Kiryat Shmona, Israel. Kiryat Shmona is a city located in the northern diestric of Israel on the western slopes of the Hula Valley near the Lebanese border.
On Shabbat services on January 16th we will virtually welcome Rabbi Orit Rozenblit from the new Kehillah congregation in Kiryat Shmona. Rabbi Rozenblit will speak at Shabbat services about the opportunities and challenges facing Israeli Reform congregations. We may even recognize our own early days at Temple Israel!
Orit Rozenblit was born in Kibbutz Dovrat. Her passion is exploring Jewish texts and finding their relevance for our lives today, which is what set her on her Rabbinic journey.
