We are a diverse and inclusive Jewish community of full and part-time residents.
We believe there are many routes to meaningful Jewish experiences and this
philosophy is reflected in our name - Netivot Torah - which means "pathways to Torah."

Keeping the Faith While Staying Apart

 
 
Like most other places of worship during this pandemic, we've gone virtual. But, thanks to Zoom, we're able to keep the faith, while staying apart. Our Shabbat and holiday services may be virtual, but our hard-working and resourceful Ritual Committee has found a way to make our services feel meaningful, inclusive, and, using the advantages of technology, bring members and guests from far and wide together.
 
 
 
Zoom Shabbat Services
Our virtual Shabbat Service starts at 10am, but please log-in at 9:30 to make sure everyone is properly connected. We have a virtual kiddush/hamotzi following the service, so keep your favorite kiddush libation handy.

Our weekly Yoga class are now virtual. The class is led by TCS/NT member and dancer, choreographer, and physician-assistant, Jamie Stiller.

What We Did for Chanukah 2020

Like everything else in 2020, our Chanukah celebration was virtual. We had to rethink our traditional Chanukah party, and even our Toy Drive required masks and social distancing. But despite those obstacles, we pulled it off and we'll remember Chanukah 2020 as one of our community's most meaningful. Here's a brief recap:
 
Candle Lighting
We had 7 nights of Zoom Chanukah candle-lighting featuring storytelling; videos; a 7th night celebration of Chag Habanot - the Festival of the Daughters; a program on historic menorahs, singing, and even a bit of dancing. The nightly celebrations were brief (most were about half an hour long), but the feeling of being together as a community/family glowed on much longer into the night.
 
TCS/NT Toy & Knitting Drive
Our Toy and knitting drive was a huge success this year. We had record breaking participation. Our eleven knitters created enough hats for each child in Head Start to receive a hat for each day of the week, along with matching mittens and scarves. There were even enough to send home for siblings.
 
Your response to the Toy Drive was amazing. Not only did all of our little friends at Head Start receive a bagful of wrapped gifts, but we had enough gifts to bring to USCRI in Albany to share with newly arrived refugees. And in a lovely gesture, the children of Head Start had a gift for us as well. They gave us a beautiful handmade menorah and a box of handmade Star of David ornaments,
