The New Reform Temple launches the eighth season of its monthly film series for adults which brings to our community cutting edge, award winning films that will explore the Modern Jewish Experience.
On Thursday, January 16 at 7pm at the Sulgrave, we will screen: SUGIHARA – CONSPIRACY OF KINDNESS. The story of Japanese diplomat Chiune Sugihara, consul to Lithuania during World War II, who defied Tokyo authorities and wrote transit visas allowing Jewish families to flee Europe to Japan and other countries. It is estimated that at least 40,000 people owe their existence to Sugihara’s heroism.
RSVP is required. Please contact the Temple office.
Jewish Family Services, in partnership with the Rabbinical Association of Greater Kansas City, has teamed up with area congregations in response to the ever-growing need for food assistance in Kansas City. Our congregation has been asked to collect donations of soup (including low sodium) and Kleenex during the month of January. These items will be stocked in the JFS Food pantry which will distribute over 27,000 pounds of food to more than 420 families each month. Please drop off your food donations in the collection barrel in our lobby. If you would like information regarding the JFS Food Pantry, or would like to become a JFS Food Pantry recipient, volunteer, or donor, please contact Jo Hickey, Director, Food Pantry/Community Projects, Jewish Family Services (913) 327-8257 or email email@example.com.
Hanukkah Service with Rabbi Alan Londy and Becky & Nathan Bliss
Friday, December 27 at 6pm
Friday, December 27th is the 6th night of Hanukkah. We invite our congregation to join us for the celebration of Shabbat and the Festival of Lights. We will begin our service as we all join in lighting our Hanukkah Menorahs. Everyone is requested to bring their own Hanukkah Menorah and candles so that we may light them together. It is quite impressive to see dozens of Hanukkah Menorahs all burning together in the sanctuary.
A special Hanukkah Oneg Shabbat will follow the service.
Bring your menorah and candles!
Latkes and sufganiyot (jelly donuts)!
Hanukkah is a special time of the year for all Jews. Let us celebrate this together as a united spiritual community.
We invite our congregation to join us for Shabbat and Consecration on Friday, November 8th at 6:00 p.m. We will share together in one of the highlights of our year: the consecration of our kindergarten students into our religious school. These students will participate in the service and receive their miniature Torah as symbolic of their beginning of the formal religious studies. Following the service we will celebrate with a special Oneg Shabbat.
Weekly Shabbat Services, Oneg Shabbat, and Torah Study
Please join us at our weekly Friday night Shabbat Service at 6:00 PM followed by Oneg Shabbat.
