Chadash – not a thing, but an idea. An idea that is allowing us to reimagine the Jewish community in the West Valley. A bold idea that could bring Shomrei Torah and Temple Aliyah, two vibrant synagogues, together in a way that honors each synagogues’ histories, traditions, and values, and also cultivates the synergetic potential of offering something new and creative to our communities and to those who find synagogue participation inaccessible. We are considering a collaboration with Temple Aliyah in new and experimental ways. What we learn from our research in Phase 2 has the potential to inform the Jewish experience in our community for years to come.

This is what we are exploring with Temple Aliyah - first as we got to know each other, which we called Phase 1 and now in Phase 2 as we take a deeper dive into the possibilities of creating Chadash. We have created this space to share information on each step of our process and to offer our community an opportunity to ask questions. We will reply to you as soon as possible. The links below are the communications we have sent. We thought you might like to see them all in one place instead of searching your emails. We will continue to add to this as communications are sent out. We will also add updates on where we are in the Chadash process on this page so be sure to frequent it.

If you have any questions or comments about the information provided or the Chadash process, please fill in the form on the right of this page and click submit, and we will respond to your inquiry as soon as possible.
