B’ruchim HaBa’im– Welcome to Temple Anshe Hesed!
It is a great pleasure to welcome you to our congregation. Every person, every family that becomes a part of our Temple community brings new eyes, new hopes, and new ways of living shared Jewish values. We pride ourselves at Temple that we try always to live up to our name “Anshe Hesed- People of Lovingkindness.” As you can see from the information sheets in this folder, there are many opportunities for our members to live, to learn, to celebrate and to worship as a part of a sacred community.
Our Temple mission statement says that: “We are a Reform Jewish congregation guided by Torah and dedicated to perpetuating Judaism and its traditions through education, worship, and social action in a welcoming and inclusive environment.”
As part of our Temple it is our hope that you will make this guide a critical part of your connection with the Temple. A Temple member said a few years ago, words that have become a part of who we are: “By bringing Temple into your life you are adding life to the Temple.”
It is my prayer that you will find a warm, spiritual home at the Temple. I look forward to hearing your stories and look forward to serving as your spiritual leader in the years ahead.
