A Message from Rabbi Tom Heyn
Recently, GableStage at the Biltmore staged performances of New Jerusalem. I know many in our community saw it. There were at least five Temple Israel members present the night I was there. The play was about the interrogation of Baruch Spinoza, the 17th-century Jewish philosopher whose unorthodox ideas put him at odds with the religious establishment of his time. It was sad to see such a brilliant man accused of heresy and excommunicated from the family and people he loved, but his idealism and ideals are still inspiring.

Now is the time we start looking at new and creative additions to our programming lineup, so if there is something out there that interests you, please let us know.
