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.

SNOW DAYS

In the event of a weather-related closing:

On Sundays, the decision to close Shorashim will be made by 7:00 am.  On weekdays, Shorashim and Havurat Torah will be cancelled if either White Plains or Scarsdale public schools are closed.  If those public schools are open but decide to cancel after-school activities, we will also cancel Shorashim and Havurat Torah on those days.  We will relay this information to all our families by the following methods: 

Call us at 914-948-2800, ext. 158, to hear a voice message from the Education Office when there are weather-related school closings to report.
