Jewish Community Tefilat Shalom;A Service of Comfort and Peace

Life is a journey – a sacred path with unpredictable terrain.  We need comfort and care, both when we  celebrate and when we suffer, when we rejoice and when we mourn.  This sacred and supportive time offers spiritual healing and renewal for every stage of life.  Our contemporary service includes prayer, song, readings, and person reflection.  Thursday, April 3, 2014, 6:30pm at Village Shalom.
