Temple Micah works to be a place where each member is valued, included, and supported. Our community reflects that by having fun together, engaging with and responding to the needs of our community, and exploring our experiences together. Our community groups and events offer opportunities for discussion discovery, laughter, creativity, and creating time simply to come together.

Meet Micah Friends
Join old friends and make new friends at Shabbat dinner on select Fridays after services. Meet in the lobby and we will head out to a local restaurant. No need to plan ahead: if you don’t have plans for Shabbat dinner, you’re welcome to join! Contact Meet Micah Friends for more information.
Community Shabbat Dinner
February 22, 2019: Following Kabbalat Shabbat services, community members are invited to stay for an informal community dinner to eat great food, make new friends, and reconnect with old ones.
Book Fair at Politics and Prose
November 18, 2018: Our annual book fair is the perfect opportunity to do holiday shopping and support Temple Micah at the same time. The all-day book fair features a literary speaker and the Temple Micah Youth Choir, and the Temple receives 20% of all associated book and CD purchases.
Shabbat Shalom Around Town
February 15, 2019: On a Shabbat evening each winter, Temple Micah members invite one another into their homes for a Shabbat dinner. This Micah tradition is a wonderful way of strengthening old friendships and forming new ones while sharing a festive Shabbat meal together. We encourage everyone to participate.
March 20, 2019: Each Purim, we perform our annual play for all to participate in and enjoy. Don’t forget to bring your mac ‘n cheese box “groggers” and lots of other “noisy” boxed foods to drown out Haman’s name. Items will be donated to a local food pantry. All ages are welcome to attend. Anyone who has attended this extravaganza in the past will agree that this is an event not to miss.
Temple Micah Spring Auction
March 16, 2019: This is an event for the whole community to help raise funds for all of the events and activities at Temple Micah. It is the biggest fundraiser of the year, and just an all around fun night. This past year’s auction raised just over $100,000 to help fund the synagogues activities. Questions? Contact the Auction Chair.
Community Seder sponsored by Kol Isha
April 20, 2019: “Let all who are hungry come and eat.” The Temple Micah Community Seder, sponsored by Kol Isha (A Woman’s Voice), is an annual event that takes place on the Saturday of Passover. The Kol Isha members have put together a meaningful Hagaddah.
People of the Book Fair
May 5, 2019: Each year as Machon Micah wraps up, we hold a community-wide celebration of books, the Temple Micah People of the Book Fair. We have a great line-up of authors for all ages who sell and sign books. The day also includes a moon bounce, food trucks, and a book exchange. Members bring one special book they’ve enjoyed to share with others.
