Temple Reyim Shabbat Services at Hebrew College This Summer

While our building is under construction with improvements to the main entrance, office area, and Ordis Hall, our Shabbat morning services will be held at Hebrew College, 160 Herrick Road, Newton. Our greeters there will direct you to services in the Beit Midrash, and we will enjoy kiddush after services. Please use the entrance on the right side of the building.

We look forward to seeing you there, and also welcome you to join us on the livestream here.

While our offices are temporarily relocated to Hebrew College as well, all staff can be reached at their regular phone numbers and email addresses.
