We are delighted that you are interested in learning more about our Reform synagogue. We are a small Jewish community (about 200 families) bound together by a commitment to our Jewish heritage. We strive to provide a spiritual home, an educational forum, and a social network for Jews by birth, Jews by choice, as well as non-Jewish spouses in the East Bay region of Rhode Island and Southeastern Massachusetts.
Our Rabbi, Andrew Klein, provides our spiritual leadership. We welcome you to join us for our Shabbat services, which usually begin Friday evening at 8:00 P.M. Check our Service Schedule for accurate times of our worship service.
Temple Habonim offers an accredited religious school for which Gary Kabler serves as Education Director. Our religious school provides an exceptional educational experience for our youth. We begin with our JCC sponsored Pre-K class under the direction of Sara Foster. Classes K-10, prepare our children in all facets of Jewish life, including Shabbat and Holy Day rituals, Bible Studies, the study of Hebrew, preparation for Bar Mitzvah and Bat Mitzvah, as well as Confirmation.
Our Sisterhood sponsors social events and enrichment activities, and offers financial support for many temple projects. Membership in Sisterhood is open to temple members and non-members alike.
Our Youth Group, BCTY (Bristol County Temple Youth) is open to our students in grades 9 through 12 and is affiliated with NFTY-NE (National Federation of Temple Youth-Northeast). BCTY provides our youth with the fun of socializing with Jewish teens throughout the New England area. BCTY’s activities range from such serious subjects as panel discussions on Israeli life to dances, picnics, and trips. The Youth Group also provides services for the Temple, our town, and other worthy causes. Because of the success of our Youth Group, Temple Habonim maintains a very high participation of its youth past their Bar Mitzvah and Bat Mitzvah celebrations.
And our Renaissance Group comes up with many programs during the year which are open to all but typically attract a more mature audience for guest speakers, shows, food and fun.
If you are interested in joining our Temple family or have questions not answered here, please call the Temple office, 401-245-6536, or send us an e-mail, firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to hearing from you.
