Chai Anniversary Celebration

December 2 @ 5:30 pm - 10:00 pm

Temple Beth Shira is celebrating its 18th Chai Year Anniversary with a SPECIAL EVENT OPEN TO THE PUBLIC of all denominations.

Festivities will take place on Friday, December 2, 2022, beginning at 5:30 PM. Hosted at the South County Civic Center in Delray Beach, the evening will begin with a brief Shabbat service followed by hors d’oeuvres, a wine tasting, and dinner. In addition, guests will be entertained by a concert of Broadway favorites. Plus a dessert contest!  There will also be a silent art auction and a 50/50 raffle throughout the evening.

The wine tasting will be led by temple members Mel and Phyllis Nass, who grew wine- and table-grapes for over 40 years in the Finger Lakes region of New York. Sip and learn about selected wines.

Rabbi-Cantor Sharon Steinberg will present a concert of Broadway Favorites. Prior to being a rabbi, she had careers as a professional singer, performing opera and concerts on three continents, followed by 20 years as a cantor in the Washington DC Metro area. Subsequently, she became ordained as a rabbi.

Temple Beth Shira has a number of temple members who are professional artists and are donating a majority of the artworks. Have a look and place your offer silently.

All attendees are invited to participate in our Best Dessert Contest. The Best Dessert Contest will be judged by attendees with the winner earning bragging rights. Anyone entering the contest will be required to bring 50-100 bite-sized portions and must include a list of ingredients.

Temple Beth Shira is The ONLY Reform synagogue WEST OF THE TURNPIKE. The membership consists of residents from West Boca Raton, Deerfield, Delray and Boynton Beach. It was originally established in 2003 to fulfill the need of an intimate, “Haymishe” neighborhood synagogue. The first spiritual leaders were Rabbi-Cantor Bruce Benson and Cantor Ellen Stettner. Since 2015 the temple has been under the leadership of Rabbi-Cantor Sharon Steinberg.
