Rabbinic Transition

L’dor v’dor, generation to generation. 

For 168 years, Barnert Temple has been making a significant difference in the lives of its members, the community it serves and the world beyond its doors.  As we look toward Rabbi Frishman’s retirement and look ahead to a new rabbinic leader, we ask:  What will this transition mean for each of us?  How will it affect our congregation?  What will Barnert Temple look like in the coming years?  We want you to help shape Barnert Temple’s future by joining our thoughtful and dynamic conversation.  You are invited to participate in our Rabbinic Transition Process.


Community Action on Syria

Rabbi Frishman spoke eloquently regarding the Syrian Refugee Crisis.  Read Rabbi Frishman's Rosh Hashanah 5776 sermon, Yom Kippur 5776 Morning sermon, and Congregational letter
