Temple Israel and JCC to co-sponsor special Shabbat Morning Service

July 14, 2014

What’s Happening

Saturday, July 19, 10 am, Sandler Family Campus

Always innovative, Temple Israel will relocate its Saturday, July 19 morning service to the Fleder Multipurpose Room at the Sandler Family Campus to give its congregation and the community a chance to meet an innovative rabbi and experience a new model of ritual for Hampton Roads. The Simon Family JCC is co-sponsoring the event with the synagogue.

The service will be led by Rabbi Jake Rubin, nephew of Temple Israel president Joel Rubin, who is a graduate of the Reconstructionist Seminary in Philadelphia and the director of the Hillel chapter at the University of Virginia. The interactive service will include explanations of Reconstructionist observance and engaging Torah study. College and pre-college age students, as well as their parents, are urged to attend to learn about Hillel. Alicia Cohen Kraus, the new director of Hillel at ODU, will also attend to answer questions.

Lunch will be provided to all “congregants” after the service and program.
