Community life at Temple David

Temple David is more than a synagogue, it is a meeting place for the community to get together on a social level. We have several social groups and events which are worth checking out, please contact the office for details including dates and times.

Mums and Bubs

Mums and Bubs meets on Friday mornings. With a room full of toys and the espresso machine ready for use, this group of mums, bubs and tots enjoy a chat and a play once a week for a couple of hours.

Israeli Dancing

Why not come along to the weekly Israeli Dancing sessions? Suitable for all levels of experience including beginners.

Doven and Dine

Join us for our monthly onegim after the Friday night service. Bring a plate to share and meet new faces or catch up with some familiar ones.

Kabbalat Shabbat in the Park

During the warmer months, the Temple David community welcome the Shabbat with a service in one of the beautiful parks in Perth. Make sure to pack a picnic for afterwards.

Bagel Breakfast

Once a month Temple David hosts a bagel breakfast before the Shabbat morning service. It’s a wonderful opportunity to chat with other members, enjoy some nosh and a coffee/tea before the service begins.

Israeli Film Nights

These nights are a great opportunity to get together, watch an Israeli movie and have a little nosh.

Purim Party

Last year’s fancy hat Purim party was a great success and we’ll be looking to make it even bigger and better next year.

Camp David

Camp David was a weekend camp for Progressive Jews in WA held this year over the Labour Day long weekend. It was an amazing weekend full of great fun, learning and bonding for the community.

Netzer

Netzer Australia is a Progressive, Zionist Youth Movement, which aims to inspire and educate the youth of our community. Netzer run Perth Sleepover weekends quarterly at Temple David. This is always a fun and educational weekend.

Book Club

Temple David’s Book Group is quite informal, people are welcome to come for one book or for many. We read four books a year – looking for works, both fiction and non-fiction, that may not be well known but are well worth delving into – all with some connection to Judaism, of course.

The Shmooz Club

Senior members of the congregation are invited to join us for lunch and Yiddishkeit fun. Lunch is provided.

Mitzvah Day

Temple David is a proud participant of Mitzvah Day Australia. Mitzvah Day 2017 will be Sunday, November 19th. To learn more about this wonderful initiative please see the Mitzvah Day Australia website.

High Holy Days at Temple David

Rosh Hashanah

We invite you to share in celebrating and observing these special Holidays with our Congregation. Our Rosh Hashanah services will start off the High Holiday Days, it will include our annual Rosh Hashanah lunch and Tashlich in the park. Meaningful Yom Kippur services will give time for prayer and reflection. Following on from Yom Kippur, Sukkot will be highlighted by joyful services and our very popular ‘Pizza in the Hut.’ Simchat Torah is a time for rejoicing as we dance with the Torah scrolls to lively music and the beautiful voices of the Temple David Choir.

Interested in joining us for the High Holiday Days? Tickets are available for a suggested donation through the office.
