TAO – Temple Adath Or – is a community of light. A Kabbalah-based community, TAO is led by Rabbi Marc Labowitz, a visionary leader bringing his warmth, wisdom and wit to us at weekly Shabbat services.
We are so happy that this week’s special guest is Rabbi Ruz Gulko.
“Judaism teaches that sin is an act, not a state. Everyone sins, and therefore everyone is a sinner, but that is not their essence. It is rather the condition conferred by their actions. We are not born in sin; we are each born with powerful tendencies to both good and evil, and the drama of human character is in the struggle and balance between the two. The corrective mechanism is Teshuvah, repentance”.
Is Teshuvah a mitzvah? Are we commanded to do this inventory? Fascinatingly, the answer is no! At least, mostly… so, what’s going on??
TAO meets at 6:00 PM on the 1st and 3rd Fridays monthly at the Old Davie School Historical Museum 6650 Griffin Rd, Davie, FL (less than 1 mile west of Griffin Rd exit on the Turnpike)
TAO North, until further notice, meets on ZOOM at 6:00 PM on the 2nd and 4th Fridays monthly. We are getting close to finalizing our Delray Beach location very soon.
All of TAO’s services are available to everyone everywhere on Facebook
