Wildwood temple offers sweet start to the New Year


Members and friends of Beth Judah Temple in Wildwood celebrated Havdalah together earlier this month. Members and friends of Beth Judah Temple in Wildwood celebrated Havdalah together earlier this month. Beth Judah Wildwood is moving into the New Year with new energy and novel programs offering sweet and refreshing approaches to Jewish tradition. The Cape May County synagogue, located at the corner of Spencer and Pacific Avenues, is also welcoming all who are interested to attend their High Holiday services, with no tickets required, although RSVP is requested.

The Wildwood temple will hold what may be the shore’s last beach service of the season on September 30 at 6:30 p.m., at the Spicer Avenue Beach, just down the street from the temple.

The beach service will cap off a month in which the small synagogue, which recently celebrated its 100th anniversary, has offered a number of programs to get people in the mood for the upcoming Holy Days—including a Shofar-building workshop on September 18 and a trip to a honey farm, complete with honey tasting and a discussion of Jewish traditions related to honey, on September 11.

On September 10, roughly 20 Beth Judah members and friends gathered at the home of Miriam and Larry Hirsch for a discussion on Jewish Cultural Literacy, or “knowledge that represents the thoughts and behaviors of Jewish life,” said Beth Judah’s acting rabbi Ron Isaacs, who led the discussion. The evening concluded with a Havdalah service.
