At Temple Emanu-El of Palm Beach we strive to make our congregation a Kehillah Kedoshah – a Holy Community – one dedicated to Torah (Jewish Learning), Avodah (Prayer and Spiritual Growth), and Gimilut Hasadim (Personal Kindness, Community and Social Action). Fully egalitarian, we believe that engaging in the core values of our Jewish Tradition will impact the way we live, think and act as Jews, and will serve as a catalyst for real change in us and in the world we all share.
Introduction to Judaism is designed to introduce the adult learner to the wealth and richness of Judaism as a religious culture. The approach of the course is historical and a brief survey of Jewish history will be included. Jewish theology, life cycle, yearly cycle, and worldview will be discussed in some detail. The purpose of the course is to offer a gateway into Judaism for those who are exploring their spiritual options and a starting point for Jewish adults who are looking for a comprehensive course to give them the background to continue Jewish learning.

Caregiver Support Group
Thursday, March 13
Being a caregiver can be mentally, physically, and emotionally draining under the best of circumstances. The challenges of caring for a sick or elderly loved one can often result in caregivers ignoring their own physical and emotional health, often to the extent that they don't recognize or cope with the symptoms of stress that they are experiencing.
Temple Emanu-El's Caregiver Support Group offers a safe place to discuss the stresses and challenges of providing care for a loved one, as well as strategies for also caring for yourself.
Our Caregiver Support Group is free of charge and is open to Temple members and guests alike.
Refreshments will be provided. Please RSVP (so we know how much to order) by calling561-832-0804 or toMelanie@tepb.org
