Outreach / Interfaith
OUTREACH......our commitment to making everyone feel a part of the temple community.
Our Outreach Program serves the needs of interfaith couples, couples considering interfaith marriage, Jews by choice, relatives of interfaith couples...anyone concerned about Jewish values and traditions.
Begun over 30 years ago, Outreach began as an initiative of the Reform movement due to the leadership of then President of the UAHC (Union of American Hebrew Congregations) Rabbi Alexander Schindler.
Our Congregation is the only Temple in Las Vegas/Henderson which specifically provides Outreach programming.
Typically Outreach programs are holiday or life cycle based. The programs are designed to teach different skills related to blessings and ritual actions as well as an enhanced knowledge of customs and traditions.
In the summer our Congregation offers an 8 week "Introduction to Judaism Class". For those interested in conversion, every September a new class begins, though upon consultation with Rabbi Akselrad, it is possible to begin the process mid-year. Our congregation has had a long history of welcoming inter-faith families and Jews-by-choice. It is our desire to help people in their Jewish choices and to create a caring and supportive community.
