Stories of the Kindertransport:

(German for “children’s transport”)

The Power and Importance of Memory

Thursday, April 28, 2022, 7:00 p.m.
TAE and live-streamed

Dr. Hensley will share stories of parents who sent their children from likely destruction to an uncertain future, the men and women who gave these children new lives in safety and security, and the ability these stories have to shape memory and inspire the future.

Jason Hensley, Ph.D., has been lecturing on the Holocaust since 2013. He has traveled around North America, interviewing Holocaust survivors who escaped the Holocaust on the Kindertransport. His work has been featured on the BBC, Breaking Israel News, Aish.com, and the USC Shoah Foundation’s website.


Shabbat Shira 2022

Friday, April 22, 2022, at 7:00 p.m.
TAE Sanctuary or live-streamed!

Join Cantor Shukiar, the TAE Chorale, and the Band of Milk and Honey as we recall our Exodus from Egypt across the Sea of Reeds to freedom. As we remember the song that Moses, Miriam and the Hebrews sang at the shores of the sea, we will experience an evening filled with music and spirit, together exploring songs of peace, Shalom Rav, and Sim Shalom.


Discover the history, mystery, and meaning of these texts through various versions spanning many generations of Jewish music. You do not want to miss this chance to study and experience these wonderful and meaningful pieces of our liturgy.

Meditation Service

Saturdays, 10:00 a.m.
Location: Temple Adat Elohim

Practices may include mindfulness, lovingkindness meditation, walking meditation, morning blessings of gratitude, singing of Chassidic niggunim (songs without words), kirtans, and more. You do not need to have a background in meditation to participate. All are welcome!

Slichot Questions

  1. When did you answer the call of a noble or difficult cause? Was it the right decision?
  2. Just as poet Haim Nachman Bialik called upon Jews to defend themselves, when have you been called to defend yourself someone else in any way?
  3. Like the poet Rachel, sometimes we have doubts, even about our noble missions. When have you had doubt about something you were called upon to do?
  4. In what ways do you identify with the early pioneer Zionists?
  5. In what ways do their dilemmas, choices and actions relate to you?
