Jesus Camp follows Levi, Rachel, and Tory to Pastor Becky Fischer’s “Kids on Fire” summer camp in Devil’s Lake, North Dakota, where kids as young as 6 years-old are taught to become dedicated Christian soldiers in “God’s army.” The film follows these children at camp as they hone their “prophetic gifts” and are schooled in how to “take back America for Christ.”

Join The New Reform Temple for #ShowUpForShabbat
Friday night, November 2nd at 6:00 pm, The New Reform Temple is gathering for #ShowUpForShabbat, a special Shabbat Service of Mourning and Solidarity.
The New Reform Temple is calling upon its synagogue members—along with elected officials, religious and civic leaders, and other communal allies—to flock to The New Reform Temple, as part of this nationwide #ShowUpForShabbat campaign initiated by the AJC.
11 Jews worshiping at Tree of Life Congregation in Pittsburgh, PA were killed attending Sabbath Worship. This massacre was the worst Anti-Semitic event in American History. We worship together to honor their memories and to affirm our glorious American tradition of Freedom of Religion.
Our Interfaith community and its clergy will be present as well. We must ensure that love triumphs over hate, good over evil, unity over division. That’s our America.
Come to The New Reform Temple this Friday night at 6:00 pm, November 2nd, and take a stand. Bring your neighbors. The New Reform Temple synagogue community needs to worship together this Shabbat and we need our neighbors to stand together with us.
The New Reform Temple is honored to offer a unique four-week course entitled: What Jews Should Know about the New Testament. The instructor will be Revered, Dr. Robert Hill. The course will be offered on four consecutive Monday nights: October 22nd, October 29th, November 5th and November 12th. The course will begin at 7:00 pm sharp and will last approximately one hour. This educational program is open to the community.
The New Reform Temple has a unique history of inter-faith engagement. For Jews living in the United States today, a basic understanding of the New Testament is essential for understanding our own place in the American religious landscape.
Prior registration is required. Only a limited number of slots are available. Contact the Temple office to register. The registration deadline is Monday, October 15.
The next NRT Book Club will be held on Tuesday, October 30 at 7:00 pm.
The book is Letters to My Palestinian Neighbor by Yossi Klein Halevi.
Letters to My Palestinian Neighbor is one Israeli’s powerful attempt to reach beyond the wall that separates Israelis and Palestinians and into the hearts of “the enemy.” In a series of letters, Yossi Klein Halevi explains what motivated him to leave his native New York in his twenties and move to Israel to participate in the drama of the renewal of a Jewish homeland, which he is committed to see succeed as a morally responsible, democratic state in the Middle East.
Meet with other congregants for an evening of thought-provoking conversation, friendship and fun to discuss the book.
Space is limited. Please RSVP to the Temple office by October 25. If you have any questions, you may contact the office at 816-523-7809.
