Work in progress... Coming soon...
Temple Gates of Prayer Congregation Shaarai Tefilla is a warm, welcome, inclusive, egalitarian community. Join us for a single service, or for a lifetime. There is a place for everyone at Temple Gates of Prayer. Welcome home.
Our neighbors from The Sikh Temple have expressed their concern for our community and for the Jewish people. They are concerned about our safety, at the same time that their community has been the target of hatred. Their words remind us there is good in the world, even when darkness is so visible. We need to appreciate the goodness and always keep it in our thoughts.
The leaders of Temple Gates of Prayer are very aware of our safety. In the past few years, we have taken steps to enhance our personal safety and the security of our building. Our Congregant’s contributions through the Kol Nidre Pledge are used to support our security. We work closely with the NYPD, through our local precinct, to ensure they have a presence in our neighborhood. They have provided guidance to us about what to do in the same circumstances as occurred in Pittsburgh.
We share the mourner’s grief at Tree of Life Synagogue.
