A welcoming community of Jewish life, worship and learning


This is a very exciting time at Temple B’nai Abraham. It is our great pleasure to welcome Rabbi David Z. Vaisberg to our Temple family as he begins his tenure as our Senior Rabbi. We also welcome his wife Miriam Palmer-Sherman and their children Nava and Judah Sherman-Vaisberg.

We are a congregation that is more than 165 years old that works together to define our own independent path. We strive daily to be faithful to the teachings of the Torah, dedicated to the acquisition of Jewish knowledge, and committed to the well-being of the Jewish people in America, Israel and around the world.

We would love to meet you.
