We find the initial reference to the ner tamid in this week's Torah portion, Parashat T'tzaveh.  the parashah opens with the instructions for creating and maintaining the ner tamid.  "You shall further instruct the Israelites to bring you clear oil of beaten olives for lighting, for kindling lamps regularly.  Aaron and his sons shall set them up in the Tet of Meeting, outside the curtain which is over [the Ark of the Pact], [to burn] from evening to morning before the Eternal.  It shall be a due from the Israelites for all time, throughout the ages" (Exodus 27:20-21).

Dear Friends:
 

 

Despite the Pandemic, Temple Isaiah continues have a robust schedule of activities, both safely in person and on-line.

A week does not go by, without someone letting us know how grateful they are that we “did not turn our lights off,” during COVID-19, in fact we have made them brighter!

Just look the next few months of programming:

Join us this Friday night, February 25th, for Erev Shabbat services at 7:30pm on Facebook Live.

The next Shabbat Under the Stars will take place on Friday night, March 5th at 7:30PM, in our parking lot/outside sanctuary. The nights are beginning to be not as cold at the start of the service, but you will still need a coat and of course a face covering, as well as lots of ruach (spirit). We also stream the service on Facebook Live, however, this a great way to be safely together as community on Shabbat.

THE WHOLE MEGILLAH!!

We will be reading the WHOLE MEGILLAH on Erev Purim, over Zoom on Thursday night, February 25th at 7:00pm. Bring your own graggers and Hamentachen!!

Yes it is true that Passover falls out in March this year. Due to the pandemic, we will be having our first night Pesach community Seder on Zoom and will be highly interactive and participatory. Plan on joining us Saturday March 27th, beginning at 6:30pm. We would love to have many people participate, so please contact me if your are interested in doing a reading.

Our Palm Springs Jewish Film Festival will feature an online format for the week of April 18th along with opportunities to discuss selected films with several of the producers and directors. This is not to be missed!!

Also, note the following dates for these very popular events:

At “A Night Out On The Town,” guests will stroll down memory lane as they view iconic fashions from the past in this exciting fashion retrospective that spans decades. The event will take place at Temple Isaiah, a midcentury building in downtown Palm Springs. Guests are encouraged to attend wearing their finest vintage apparel. After they enjoy a glass of wine, bubbly or beverage and an assortment of sweets in an outdoor pavilion, they will be escorted to the spacious and stunning 1000-seat Bochner Auditorium where they can view this amazing fashion production while observing social distance protocols in accordance with state and local health guidelines. The alternative will be a completely outside event if mandated by state guidelines.

 

Following the show, guests will be able to participate in a lively Q &A with celebrity stylist Neil Cohen, who will answer fashion questions and make predictions about the future of fashion. Guests will be able to shop before the show for great vintage, and after the show to purchase pieces from the show at the Mitchells Palm Springs Pop Up Shop. A portion of proceeds from this event will be donated to Temple Isaiah.

The guided tour of Temple Isaiah, a stunning architectural masterpiece, contrasts the E. Stewart Williams modernist-designed 1950s Al Liberman Chapel with the 1980s west-facing addition. The addition, originally conceived in 1971 by Donald Wexler and later in 1982 designed by David Christian to meet the growing needs of the congregation, has a magnificent panoramic window view of the San Jacinto Mountains. The Bochner Sanctuary features a colorful centerpiece ark by Israeli born sculptor and kinetic artist Yaacov Agam. The tour will include the history of sanctuary design and a Rabbi Rosenberg will speak briefly on how the pandemic reinvigorated religion and discussion to follow.
