Rabbi Silber's welcome

Dear Friends,

The Torah in Shemos states: “V’ASU LI MIKDASH V’SHACHANTI B’SOCHUM; Make for Me a Temple and I will dwell within you.”

Although we have not yet merited the Third Temple, we are incredibly fortunate to have a beautiful, holy and incredibly special מקדש מעט (small Temple) ; our own Suburban Orthodox Congregation Toras Chaim. We are a strong Shul of over 300 families made up of all ages and backgrounds. We are a Shul that takes special pride in creating a meaningful atmosphere for prayer and Torah learning.

We offer multiple opportunities for Shiurim, classes and lectures as well as extensive youth programming and community chessed activities. The State of Israel has a special place in our communal heart. We see its miraculous formation just 60 short years ago as the dawn of the Messianic era. Ultimately, we believe that what makes our people unique is the ability to forge a special and unique bond with הקדוש ברוך הוא and our Shul provides us with multiple opportunities to accomplish this noble objective.

Until the day when we are blessed with the Third Temple, we will continue to use our מקדש מעט as our portal of connection to God and to each other.

Kol Tuv,
Rabbi Shmuel Silber
