Changes in Temple Operations as of Tuesday, March 17

In the face of these unprecedented times, Temple Beth Shalom remains committed to our core values more than ever. Keeping the health and well-being of our entire community in mind, we are suspending on-site operations effective Tuesday, March 17, through at least Friday, May 1. Although our building will be closed, our temple community remains open, warm, and welcoming! Here’s what this means for you.

 

Temple Beth Shalom is a warm and welcoming Reform congregation in Austin, Texas. Our mission is to promote worship, spirituality, lifelong education, personal growth, and the nurturing and support of lifecycle events in a collaborative setting.

    Hearing the Prophetic Voice

    Monday, Mar 30th 7:00p to 9:00p
    Although the Sages proclaimed the end to Prophesy centuries ago, we still hear the prophetic voice today. We hear it from the Biblical Prophets and from voices that challenge our society today. Rabbi Cohen and Rabbi Freedman will begin this lifelong learning opportunity by examining the prophetic texts of Isaiah and Micah for messages that continue to resonate. The class will then explore how the more modern prophetic voice continues to influence modern society through the messages of Abraham Joshua Heschel and others. Finally, participants will examine some contemporary prophetic voices such as Yuval Noah Harari challenging American and Israeli society as well as examining visions of the Jewish future.
