Ritual Life

Services, celebrations and rituals at TI are as diverse as our community, ranging from classical high holidays to outdoor services. We celebrate rituals -- communal and personal -- throughout the year and over the milestones of life.

Shabbat Services

Something every Shabbat. First Friday Shabbat Dinner, one creative and 2 traditional services monthly. Rabbi Andrea co-leads with colleagues Yosl Kurland, Sara Schley, David Arfa, and other guests.

In the summer, Friday outdoor mikvehs/immersions and occasional hikes and services, mostly in West County.

High Holidays

Our high holiday schedule includes meals, outdoor celebrations, traditional and creative services, and even yoga - late on Yom Kippur afternoon.

Holidays

Of course we celebrate the holidays, from wild and wooly Purim to illuminating Hannukah. Fun for families and all ages, our annual celebrations ground us in the story and history of Judaism.

Life Cycle Events

Rabbi Andrea is available for support around the joys and sorrows of life cycle events. Contact her for consulting, counseling and crafting ceremonies.
