Join us for a special Shabbat service with Rabbi Arik Labowitz.
The Purpose of Creation – Exploring facets of the biblical creation story and bringing to the surface deeper philosophical questions and responses. Maybe a few jokes too.
Rabbi Arik Labowitz is a dynamic educator and leader committed to connecting people to the Jewish tradition in meaningful and relevant ways. Arik comes from a diverse Jewish background and especially identifies with couples and families who are looking for a connection to Judaism outside of a traditional synagogue setting.
Arik comes from a family of rabbis and has spent most of his adult life in Jewish leadership roles. In addition to devoting years of study and practice to the Jewish tradition, Arik has gleaned wisdom from other spiritual traditions of the East and West.
In the past two decades Arik has worked professionally with synagogues, small communities, and unaffiliated families and couples to help them all find a personalized relationship with Judaism. He has recorded two CDs of Jewish Music under the title Simu Lev, and has been privileged to produced CDs for several talented musicians as well.
Steeped in the traditions of our ancestors with a modern day approach, each Shabbat Service will leave you feeling connected to your community, your faith and yourself. At TAO, we hold people, not prayer books. Our virtual siddur, projected behind the bima, frees your hands to clap, drum and shake your tambourine. However you connect, we invite you to join us – the singing and dancing shul.
