Gather with us onsite or online for Qabbalat Shabbat in the Temple Israel Garden (weather permitting). All are welcome to join this service full of prayer, meditation, and music!

Join us on Zoom, on Facebook Live, or via Temple Israel’s livestream.

This Shabbat, we welcome Rabbi Mike Moskowitz, Rabbi Zecher's friend and colleague from the Shalom Hartman Rabbinic Leadership Institute. He serves as the Scholar-in-Residence for Trans and Queer Jewish Studies at Congregation Beit Simchat Torah, the world's largest LGBT synagogue. He is a deeply traditional and radically progressive advocate for trans rights and a vocal ally for LGBTQ inclusivity. Rabbi Moskowitz received three Ultra-Orthodox ordinations while learning in the Mir in Jerusalem and BMG in Lakewood, NJ. He is a Wexner Field Fellow, David Hartman Center Fellow, Senior Rabbinic Fellow at the Hartman Institute, and the author of Textual Activism, Graceful Masculinity, and Seasonal Resistance. His newest book, Covenantal Allyship, will be available this fall. Rabbi Moskowitz’s writings can be found at www.rabbimikemoskowitz.com.

As part of our service, Rabbi Zecher will be in conversation with Rabbi Moskowitz about the power of allyship, what Judaism has to teach us about it, and the impact it can have across all communities. He will also join us as guest teacher at Torah Study on Saturday, August 12.
