These pillars of Worship, Learning, Good Deeds and Community are what we do every day, and now we are bringing them to you in a different way. Even when apart, we are together, living our Jewish values.

Wise Temple will remain closed through April 30th.

Worship

Because prayer and the comfort of community are especially important now, Shabbat evening services will be streamed live from Wise Center on Friday evening at 6:15 PM.

Stream Shabbat Evening Services Here (services can be viewed until Saturday evening at 6:00 PM)

Facebook LIVE Events:

Through these pages there will be Facebook Live events, our YoFI Shababa Saturday morning gatherings, our Family Shabbat Service, and other events for children, teens and families.

STUDY

Tuesdays with Torah 60 minute long classes of adult learning, and Thursday’s Taste of Torah: 20 minutes of Jewish Enrichment, will both be held at noon via Zoom, and Saturday morning Torah Study at 10:45 am can be attended via Zoom.

See the Monday, Wednesday, and Friday temple emails for zoom link information or contact Alex Burte.

You will also receive a 2 minute video of learning and reflection from our rabbis via email on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.

GOOD DEEDS

We have a proud congregational tradition of engagement in our larger world and contributions to our city’s poor and those struggling with needs. We will be in touch with you about the most meaningful and productive ways you can help those most vulnerable in Cincinnati during this crisis.

COMMUNITY

In this community we share our lives with one another! As a kehillah k’dosha, קהילה קדושה, a holy congregation, we extend our hand to one another and to our larger community, knowing that holiness is deepest when we lift one another up.

We have opportunities for you to offer help to others, or to receive help if needed, and to lean on those in your congregational family for the support that is at the core of being a holy congregation.

  • To help, you could call Wise Temple congregants living alone to check on them once or twice a week, deliver needed groceries or prescription medicine, or make a contribution of supplies, food, or money for those in need.
  • Perhaps you need help. You may live alone and would welcome a call from a congregant, you may need groceries or medicine, or could benefit from a personal conversation with our Rabbis.

Whether it’s to offer, or receive help, you may also call or email Luana in the Rabbis’ office, 513-793-2559 or lheinemeyer@wisetemple.org to indicate where you are prepared to lend your hand or to identify your need of receiving a hand. Please also provide your phone number(s), email and home address in the event that we don’t have your most updated information.
