Jewish Life & Culture

Hi all,

I am compelled to highlight every year that the World Wide Wrap conducted at hundreds of synagogues globally, originated here at Temple Israel, nearly 30 years ago. Who knew after years of participating in the World Wide Wrap while living with my family in NY, we would relocate, join, and even work at Temple Israel. This past Super Bowl Sunday, all our students who attended class had the opportunity to participate in the World Wide Wrap and wear tefillin; with guidance of clergy and Men’s club volunteers they put it on and said the prayer. Following morning minyan, we had a short class focusing on student selected questions from the Jewish Book of Why. We briefly discussed the significance of names for spouses and family members. It further supports the notion why Jews are traditionally not named juniors or seconds. Does you child know why they were given the name they so proudly identify as? Ask them.

Thank you, AJ
