Temple Adat Elohim creates innovative ways to build connections and community. One of the most powerful ways to accomplish this is through communal travel, where lifelong friendships are cultivated while exploring the world and building stronger Jewish identities. With that in mind, TAE is planning two exciting trips in 2021! Travel to Israel with Rabbi Diamond in late June 2021! This trip is designed for families and first timers and will include a b’nai mitzvah service! Travel to Eastern Europe with Cantor David in October 2021! This adult trip will include visiting Prague and Berlin, with a special stop in Rakovnik, the small town where our Holocaust Torah was written more than 400 years ago. There will also be an optional trip extension to Budapest.

Ryan is kind, generous, funny, loving young man. He has a passion for fishing and spends most of his free time looking for local waters

to catch and release. Ryan is starting high school and has joined the HS wrestling team. Dylan is also funny and loving and loyal and kind. He will be starting 7th grade in the Fall. He too enjoys fishing and has a love of football. Both boys are animal lovers which is why they chose to do their Mitzvah project volunteering at Shelter Hope Pet Shop.
