Come to Temple


This is an important time of the year for Alameda’s Jewish community. Temple Israel marks this Saturday with three events. They have a Torah study and “Art for All!” at 10:30 a.m., Saturday, Sept. 16. Call 522-9355 to confirm the time for the Torah study. 

Then, at 8:30 p.m., in anticipation of Rosh Hashanah, there will be a reading of the penitential poems and prayer, the Selichot, followed by nosh and conversation. 

The temple will host an open house from 2 to 4 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 17, to thank the community for its support. Come and learn more about the temple and its traditions.

Rosh Hashanah begins next Wednesday with a Rosh Hashanah eve celebration at 7:30 p.m., a 10 a.m. morning service, a 2 p.m. family service and Tashlisch at 3 p.m. Melita Silberstein will lead a children’s service at 10 a.m.
