SIDDUR LEV SHALEM
Temple Israel Center has transitioned to the Conservative Movement’s prayerbook, Siddur Lev Shalem. We are offering our congregants the opportunity to make personal dedications (in honor of and/or in memory of...) for the siddurim. This is a beautiful way to remember, honor, or recognize someone special by passing on the Jewish text from generation to generation.
