Simchat Torah

Hebrew for “rejoicing in the Law”, celebrates the completion of the annual reading of the Torah. Simchat Torah is a joyous festival, in which we affirm our view of the Torah as a tree of life and demonstrate a living example of never-ending, lifelong study. Torah scrolls are taken from the ark and carried or danced around the synagogue seven times. During the Torah service, the concluding section of Deuteronomy is read, and immediately following, the opening section of Genesis, or B’reishit as it is called in Hebrew, is read.

TBY’s Hannukah Pot-Luck Dinner.

Sisterhood goes all-out to make this annual event a delicious and fun event. Everyone brings either a main dish, side dish, or salad. Latkes and dessert are provided. This is a must for the entire family. Enjoy the food, music, and fellowship.

Annual Passover Seder

The Temple’s Community Passover Seder, held on the second night of Passover, delights the senses in every way.

Led by Rabbi Arthur S. Rutberg, everyone is included in the reading of the Haggadah. The seder, which is held in Ocean City, is sponsored by the Temple’s Sisterhood. Can you taste the delicious traditional foods?

Purim Service

The annual Purim Service is a fun time for all. The entire congregation is invited for games of skill and chance, a costume contest, and lots of hamantaschen.
