WE STAND WITH ISRAEL!

Congregation L’Dor Va-Dor supports Israel and its people, AM YISRAEL CHAI!  Rabbi Barry Silver (z”l) 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.  Our Rabbi and Cantor have collaborated to create this wonderful special video for Israel, “Light One Candle for Israel“, please CLICK HERE to view. 

 

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 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. 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 “Hashkiveinu“, 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.

We hold weekly Shabbat celebratory services each FRIDAY EVENING at 7 pm in Delray Beach at 5859 Heritage Park Way and offer these virtually via Zoom and live-streamed on both YouTube and Facebook.  Please either scroll down on this page, or CLICK HERE for our Calendar and view details for a specific date.  

We have an active Women’s Group (“The Women of Shechinah“), where all women are welcomed, and an active Men’s Group (“The Ezekiel Group“), where all men are welcomed.  We meet monthly for enjoyable get-togethers.  

You may want to view some of our programming to learn more about our Congregation … just CLICK HERE to go to our YouTube channel to view any of our current and historic programming, such as Shabbat services, High Holy Day services, Torah study sessions, discussions and more.   L’Dor Va-Dor is proud to stand up and speak out on the rights for women, religious freedom, anti-Semitism, the environment, and other important and critical issues.  Our Rabbi Barry Silver filed a suit in the name of our congregation and himself, against the state of Florida and the July 1, 2022 Florida anti-abortion law.  Rabbi has worked tirelessly on reversing this law to give women back their right to choose here in Florida.  To learn more about this lawsuit and applicable links, please CLICK HERE.  You can take action by completing a petition and submitting this to the Florida Supervisor of Elections to limit Florida government interference with regard to Abortions (CLICK HERE for the petition).  We are speaking up for clean water in our state of Florida, please CLICK HERE to print and sign the petition to ensure clean water for our future (the petition is HERE).  We are very proud to have been a part of preserving the lands of the Agricultural Reserve against further development with the vote of the Palm Beach County Commissioners in October 2023.  We are very excited about the documentary film “UNDER G-D” that includes Rabbi Barry Silver (z”l) speaking about the lawsuit he filed against the anti-abortion Florida law (please CLICK HERE to watch this important film).   To save the Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge which is being threatened by a proposed titanium dioxide mine, PLEASE include your name on a petition (CLICK HERE).

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, July 30th (after a bit of time-off for vacation).

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, August 6th.

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.  Please note we will have a sabbatical from this program for most of the month of July 2024 due to vacations.  We will resume on Tuesday, July 30th with TOUCH OF TORAH!  Hope to see you then.
