Celebrating 40 years!
Help Many Mansions celebrate their 40th anniversary!
Civic Arts Plaza Park

Did you know that 40 years ago TAE clergy and congregants played a role in the founding of Many Mansions? Many Mansions is turning 40 this August. To celebrate, they are having a big birthday bash in front of the Civic Arts Plaza on Saturday, August 24. This free event will have food trucks, live music, carnival games, and much more for the whole family.

Volunteers are needed to help with event prep, day of event stations, and, of course, clean up. We hope to see you there—if not as a volunteer, then as a guest!

TAE Trips in 2021

TAE is planning TWO incredible trips for 2021!!!

Temple Adat Elohim creates innovative ways to build connections and community. One of the most powerful ways to accomplish this is through communal travel, where lifelong friendships are cultivated while exploring the world and building stronger Jewish identities. With that in mind, TAE is planning two exciting trips in 2021!

1) Travel to Israel with Rabbi Diamond in late June 2021!
This trip is designed for families and first timers and will include a b’nai mitzvah service!

2)Travel to Eastern Europe with Cantor David in October 2021!
This adult trip will include visiting Prague and Berlin, with a special stop in Rakovnik, the small town where our Holocaust Torah was written more than 400 years ago. There will also be an optional trip extension to Budapest.

Interested in learning more about either of these trips???
Contact Cantor David Shukiar at to add your name(s) to our ‘interested list.’ Those people on these lists will receive information about the trips and will have the first opportunity to register, when registration opens.

Registration will be on a first come, first served basis and handled through an outside travel company, Da’at.

There trips have sold out in the past! We expect both trips will sell out quickly, so please be sure to let us know if you are interested. We would love for you to join us. Keep your eyes open for our information meeting sometimes in late November 2019.

Starlight Shabbat

“Starlight Shabbat is a sensory experience; summer breezes and the scent of trees awakens a spiritual connection for me.” Our summer services offer a nice change of pace and have become a favorite for many of our congregants. We have a beautiful courtyard that enables our congregation to pray as the sun sets and the stars come out. In recent years it has become customary for us to wear white, recreating the nostalgia many of us remember from summers away at camp! An altogether beautiful Shabbat experience — come join us to fully appreciate it!
