Message from the Rabbi

I am honored and excited to now be officially part of Temple Sholom of Ontario.  The board and I just concluded our contract, and I will be part of  you for the next two years.  However, I am looking forward to a long relationship with you all beyond that.


I am looking forward to helping us grow this synagogue. In addition to our Thursday evening adult education on a variety of   interesting and stimulating topics, we have added other classes.  We started getting together on Tuesday evenings for a  Torah study to discuss that week’s portion/Parashat/sedrah.



 We are offering he Miller Introduction to Judaism Course.  This is an acceptable prerequisite for conversion before the Beit Din in LA, and also is a great all-around course for those wishing to expand their knowledge.

 It is difficult running our synagogue programs in this pandemic in the virtual world.  All of you have rose to the challenge and our weekly Shabbat services continue. It is tough not being able to be together personally, but as per Torah, our health is important. We all want to be around and healthy when the pandemic abates and we can finally open back up the synagogue, so in the meantime, we do the best we can.

As always, it’s a pleasure and honor ministering to you.  Please feel free to let me know if you have any suggestions regarding services, prayers, programs, etc.
