The Judaism of Tomorrow Today

WE STAND WITH ISRAEL IN THEIR HOUR OF NEED!

Congregation L’Dor Va-Dor supports Israel and its people, AM YISRAEL CHAI!  Rabbi Barry Silver, our spiritual leader, has created a proposal for peace between Israel and Palestine that we would like to share with one and all (please CLICK HERE to read and help us by sharing with others).  This peace plan proposal has now been endorsed by Jewish, Muslim and Christian local religious leaders.  Please CLICK HERE to hear our Rabbi’s and Cantor’s latest collaborative song and music video in support of Israel, “Light One Candle for Israel”.  If you are able to assist Israel in their time of greatest need, please donate to the Jewish National Fund or the Jewish Federation of South Palm Beach County or Israel’s Red Cross “Magen David Adom“.  Provide help to those who have lost loved ones, been injured, have had family members kidnapped by the Hamas attacks on the morning of October 7, 2023, or have been forced to relocate from their homes. We need to help the people of Israel NOW if we are able.  Please help to RELEASE THE HOSTAGES held by Hamas – there is a petition that is URGENTLY NEEDING as many signatures as possible – Stand Tall for Israel NOW by CLICKING HERE to sign this petition!

 

Welcome to our Congregation, Family and Friends! At L’Dor Va-Dor, we practice an all-inclusive, universal, and rational approach to Judaism where all are welcome through our doors, both literally and virtually, regardless of beliefs, backgrounds, or orientation!  It is a Judaism that honors tradition, respects science, and celebrates spirituality.  We like to call this Cosmic Judaism, an inspiring and rational “InspiRational” Judaism.  We invite you to help us in building the Judaism of Tomorrow!  We offer dynamic and joyous celebrations of Shabbat and holidays and are socially-conscious about our world, environment, and current events, led by our amazing Rabbi Barry Silver, with music provided by our Cantor Carol Garrett. We welcome you to join us on this journey and to experience all we have to offer.   We lovingly welcome those who seek to learn more about Judaism and perhaps even consider adopting Judaism as their faith!  This short music video, with lyric adaptation written by our Rabbi Barry Silver, might just sum up the view shared by L’Dor Va-Dor … please CLICK HERE to view.

Weekly Programs

TOUCH of TORAH and JEWISH HISTORY

We present our TOUCH OF TORAH program every other Tuesday at 7:00 pm ET on Zoom with Rabbi Barry Silver offering his insights (sometimes with other clergy or members of L’Dor Va-Dor as guests) into the Torah Parsha for the upcoming Shabbat, events of today and the past.  This is not your “Grandparents” interpretation, but a modern and rational view, with a bit of the “Silver humor” added for good measure!  Sometimes we will show a significant film and discuss following.  Join us and see if this may be something meaningful to and for YOU! Our next Touch of Torah will be on Tuesday, February 20th.

We present our TOUCH OF JEWISH HISTORY the other Tuesday evenings at 7:00 pm ET on Zoom, where we feature exciting videos focusing on an important part of Jewish history and involve the participants in a discussion following.  Our next Touch of Jewish History will be on Tuesday, February 27th.

We look forward to your joining with us for our engaging Torah and Jewish History discussions and rational perspective and learning a bit with us!  Thank you.  To join us, please CLICK HERE Tuesdays at 7:00 pm ET.
