What's Going On

  • Rabbi Sydney Danziger has withdrawn her candidacy for the TBO Rabbi position due to a change in her family’s circumstances. She and her husband need to relocate to Southern California for her husband’s job. Rabbi Danziger apologized for the inconvenience and wished the congregation the best in our search process. As such, the Rabbinic Candidate events scheduled for this weekend and March 4 are cancelled.

    The Temple Beth Or Governing Board is excited to invite you to a Special General Membership meeting to vote on the recommendation to hire a new Rabbi. The meeting will be on Sunday March 11, from 10am – 11am and will be integrated with Religious School K’hillah in order to have as many members as possible participate in making this important decision for our community.
