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.
 

Shavuot Celebration - Pandemic Version

Sunday, May 16th, 8pm
 
You may remember our Shavuot celebrations in "the before times" as fun, congenial gatherings where we came together to study torah and the sky, as well as cheesecake and blintzes. Although we may still be a few months away from gathering together in person, we've planned a virtual Shavuot celebration that features all the highlights of our in-person gatherings - and more!
Please join us on Sunday, May 16th at 8pm for our Tikkun Leil Shavuot, as we welcome this celebratory, agricultural, torah study, cheese-eating festival with a stellar line-up of TCS/NT talent:
 
 Stargazing the Shavuot night sky with Larry Machiz
 
 Torah teachings from Fran Snyder and Allan Nahman
 
 A presentation of Shavuot-related artwork by Roberta Bernstein
 
 Evening stretching led by Jamie Stiller
 
 Shavuot Comedy with Robert Zukerman
 
 The Minhag (custom) of Eating Dairy on Shavuot explained by Elaine Khosrova
 
 Blintzes cooking demonstration with Alice Swersey
 
 Eating Gerry Staffin's delicious cheesecake (this part is real, not virtual!)
 
Gerry's Cheesecake - How to Get Your Slice - Gerry is making enough cheesecake so that everyone who wants a slice can get one. Slices can be picked up at the Synagogue on Sunday, May 16th between 2 and 3pmPlease RSVP to Gerry no later than Monday, May 10th to let him know how many people in your household will want slices. RSVP by email: gdstaff58@gmail.com. If you aren't able to come to the Synagogue to pick up your cheesecake, let Gerry know and we will arrange home delivery. Please try to save your cheesecake to eat during the social time at the end of the program!

Virtual Purim Celebration

Our 2021 Zoom Purim was a great success. Robert Zukerman's Purim Spiel (done in Queen Esther drag) was brilliantly funny and Steve Eidman chanted a mean Megillah. And there were some wonderful costumes. Here are some Zoom pics:
