Summer Services in the Great Outdoors
The beauty of Taos lifts our spirits daily, and gives a special meaning to the sacred time of Shabbat.
This summer, the TJC will continue our twice-a-month services at 6:30 pm, on
July 23, August 13 & August 27
We will meet at the picnic tables at the Taos Gorge Bridge for a picnic Shabbat meal,
followed by an outdoor service. We even hope to provide live music as we celebrate Shabbat in one of the most beautiful locations in New Mexico. Please bring a beach chair or blanket to sit on,
and don’t forget a jacket!
We'll soon be posting detailed guidelines for reopening TJC, including NM DOH recommendations and CDC considerations for communities of Faith.
Anytime is a TIME for gifts of food and Tzedakah.

Shamash Award to TJC From the Jewish Federation of New Mexico's award letter: Mazel Tov! We are extremely proud of all of your hard work and dedication on behalf of our Jewish community. The energy, commitment and tenacity of TJC continue to add so much to the life and vitality of JFNM and our greater, regional Jewish community.
On learning of the award, TJC board member Bruce Ross remarked,"Wonderful ...It seems like we’re the first to be lit and now we need to continue to light others."
The Taos Jewish Center is...
dedicated to fostering a positive Jewish identity by providing programs and services that enrich the lives of the people it serves in Northern New Mexico.
The TJC is open to all who wish to participate in experiences that reflect and incorporate Jewish ethics, culture, and observances.
The Taos Jewish Center is not only "open to," but encourages diverse forms of Jewish practice, and we have no single affiliation -- we are not orthodox, nor reform, nor reconstructionist, nor conservative; we are all of those things, and SO MUCH MORE.
Come join us and embrace the diversity and multiplicity of Judaism as practiced by those in our community.
