The Reform Movement welcomes and supports those who choose to explore Judaism. Introduced over 30 years ago, Outreach began as an initiative of the Reform Movement, thanks to the leadership of then-President of the UAHC (Union of American Hebrew Congregations, now Union for Reform Judaism) Rabbi Alexander Schindler.
CNT’s Outreach Program serves the needs of interfaith couples, couples considering interfaith marriage, Jews by Choice, relatives of interfaith couples… anyone concerned about Jewish values, history and traditions. Our Congregation is the only Temple in Southern Nevada which specifically provides Outreach programming: providing support, education, mentoring and opportunities to share experiences to individuals and families newly engaging in living Jewishly.
Typically, Outreach Programs are holiday or life-cycle based; designed to teach different skills related to blessings and ritual actions as well as an enhanced knowledge of customs and traditions. Congregation Ner Tamid offers many programs on Jewish observance and values appropriate to the beginner, and not all of them are designated specifically for “Outreach” members; you are encouraged to attend all Lifelong Learning programs offered at CNT.
