The term spirituality can be defined many different ways to different people. At Temple Beth Sholom “spiritual life” as we define it expands beyond worship; to us it also incorporates personal growth. If you are looking to strengthen your spiritual muscles, you may be interested in one of the following programs that are listed in alphabetical order below.

Avodat HaLev – Meditation of the Heart

Council to Enhance Spirituality

In this first year of our Council to Enhance Spirituality, we began a journey of learning about spirituality and finding new ways to express that to our community.  Our goal is to create a series of “Jacob’s ladders” with the intention of creating opportunities for individuals wherever they are in their spiritual journeys.

Our initiatives included…

  • …our congregational niggun to begin meetings and gatherings to create a separation for the holy space and work we do at TBS and to bring us rhythmically together.
  • …a pilot “God Talk ” program at the Temple Beth Sholom Innovative School exploring inter-generational dialogue about God.
  • …a Wise Aging Program to be launched in September.
  • …Tuesday morning Torah study of the 613 Mitzvot.
  • …Saturday morning meditation.

Beginning, October 10, 2017, we will have a series of 4 meetings open to all congregants to work with us in creating new activities and programs to enhance our spirituality.
