Leo Baeck Temple's 75th Anniversary
Annual Giving Campaign
"The true meaning of life is to plant trees, under whose shade you do not expect to sit."
For our 75th year as a congregation, we ask that you consider how central Leo Baeck Temple has been to your "yesterday, today and tomorrow.” We have all been the beneficiaries of the efforts of our founding members, and it’s our turn to live by the adage: “the true meaning of life is to plant trees, under whose shade you do not expect to sit”. We have the opportunity to secure the temple’s future, as did our predecessors before, so that future generations can benefit and learn from our example. In that spirit, and in honor of our 75th Anniversary, we are striving for 100% participation. Please consider making a meaningful gift to our Annual Giving Campaign. Together, we can continue to be a beacon in our community and beyond.

The LBT Memorial Garden is a first-of-its-kind approach to synagogue remembrance. Whenever you are at the temple, you are welcome to rest and reflect in this lovely outdoor retreat, surrounded by the wonders of nature and our congregation’s collection of personalized memorial markers, available for you to honor the legacies of your loved ones with heartfelt words and the placing of a stone, as is the Jewish custom.
Weekly Shabbat Services Live
When the busy week comes to an end, join our special summer services—Shabbat Under the Stars at 7:30pm—and experience the gift of restoration, gratitude, and soulful self-exploration. Then, on the second and fourth Saturday of every month at 9:30am our Shabbat Morning Minyan gathers our clergy and members of the temple community to create an informal, musical, spiritual and intellectually stimulating Shabbat service.
Youth & Families
From Tot Shabbat and holiday celebrations with our youngest learners, to Religious School for elementary through high school students, to opportunities for youth to informally gather to socialize and participate in tikkun olam activities in the community, Leo Baeck Temple has so much to offer our youth and their families.
Within our larger LBT community are smaller affinity groups that offer programming and special events specifically for the adults in our "mini" communities. These groups include: LBT Women, LBT Men, and Community of Engagement, each of which has unique opportunities to connect in more intimate settings.
