Why Temple Teen Night?

Written by Rabbi Joshua Brown, Posted in Temple Teen Night

Why Temple Teen Night?

One does not need to be the parent of a teenager to know that our teens have a lot going on in their lives. From extra-curricular activities to increasingly competitive courses to responsibilities to their passions, their friends and their families (in no particular order), we all know that the 21st century teenager has plenty to do.

Pluck a Sweet New Year at Apple Orchard

Written by David Golbitz, Posted in High Holidays

One of the most popular and well-known food customs on Rosh Hashanah involves dipping apples slices into honey. This sweet combination stems from an age-old Jewish tradition of eating sweet foods to express our hopes for a sweet new year.

And with Rosh Hashanah nearly upon us once again, Temple Israel would like to invite the Omaha Jewish community to help us begin a new High Holiday tradition and join us for our first ever apple picking pilgrimage.

Summer Speaker Series Week 13: Miriam Brooks

Written by David Golbitz, Posted in Summer Speaker Series

Miriam Brooks, daughter of Rabbi Sidney and Jane Brooks, joined us as the final speaker for this year's Summer Speaker Series. She recounted what it was like growing up the rabbi's daughter at Temple Israel and shared some of her fondest memories.

Also, because Jane was unable to make the trip from Boston herself, Miriam sat down with her mother and asked her about her most vivid memories of Temple Israel back in the day.

Both videos are great fun and I encourage everyone to watch them.
