Adat Chaim Welcomes You!

       What is a Synagogue?
It is clear, that walls and windows alone do not make a synagogue. People make a synagogue. At one time the usual answer would have been a building where Jews go to: pray, study, celebrate, observe life cycle events, etc. This past year has shown us that a synagogue is much more than an edifice. It is (or should be) a living breathing entity; a community of people who come together to pray, to study, to celebrate, to observe, to support each other in good times and in not so good times. Our scheduling and programming have changed as the result of the still existing pandemic. Our community has grown in terms of numbers of members and visitors who join us weekly. We are expanding our familiarity with and understanding of language, terms, and rituals we may have taken for granted without really understanding why or what we have been saying or doing. May we continue to demonstrate that we are capable of change; not change merely for the sake of change, but meaningful change based on accurate information and education.

​                There are surprises, and then there are surprises you’d never wish on anyone, like Covid-19. For instance, no synagogue would want to be searching for a new home eight weeks be-fore the High Holy Days, but we were. 

Fortunately, we’ve found one—but it won’t be available in time for the High Holy Days. More fortunately, we’ve been blessed with wonderful online services that have nourished our spirits and our thinking and also strengthened our sense of community. That’s how we’ll stay together until we are able to move. We’re still standing with each other. 

Consider us as a home for your Jewish heart. Join us online for the High Holy Days 5782 or in person in the future. 

Shanah Tovah from us to you.
