communitytable

With a bright red roof, the Community Table, stands large and center on Goodness Way at Community First! Village. It’s timber framed structure was handcrafted by volunteers and Community First! Residents. It is a space for shared meals, snow cones, dominoes, and potluck dinners where friends from all walks of life, denominations and cultures gather together. Click here to see a video of Community First! Village.

To make this a more vibrant gathering space, Temple Beth Shalom and Mobile Loaves & Fishes will partner to enhance the space with picnic tables, park benches, corn hole and game spaces, small trees landscaped with stone steppers, solar lighting and even wind chimes. A designated plaque recognizing Temple Beth Shalom will be placed in the landscaping as an enduring reminder of the power of God's love.

Your High Holy Days Donation will fund this effort. Donation envelopes will be available during High Holy Days or you can donate securely online by clicking here.

 

Beginning 1 Elul 5777, Temple Beth Shalom clergy and professional staff (and some guests) will be providing a daily commentary based on a verse from the most well-known piece of High Holy Day liturgy, the Avinu Malkeinu. Each day a new commentary will be posted on the temple website to provide inspiration as each of us prepares for the High Holy Days. Read these reflections on our website.
