Tamid’s innovative spirit has a clergy, staff, and faculty of Jewish professionals who are post-denominational and comfortable in a multi-cultural setting. The Community Council is a combination of Jewish professionals and industry lay-leaders who share the entrepreneurial goal of building Jewish life for the purpose of continuity, societal advancement, and positive identity formation. We strive to accomplish this through learning, community building, pastoral care, and life-cycle observances (baby naming ceremonies, b’nai mitzvah services, weddings and funerals).
