By blending the eternal values of Torah with modern insights, we strive to create a vibrant, inclusive and loving home that infuses our lives with shared meaning and inspires us to improve ourselves and our world.
A house of prayer, a spiritual home. Whether in the David Familian Chapel, the Deiber Chapel, the Whizin Sanctuary, the Labowe Outdoor Chapel, Russell Hall, the Farber Auditorium, in our various school classrooms, or even in a makeshift tent in the parking lot when our Auditorium needed repairs, Adat Ari El has been a house of prayer and has provided a spiritual home for our community on a daily basis for nearly 75 years.
A house of study and learning. Whether in our Early Childhood Center, our Day School, our Jewish Learning Community (formerly known as the Religious School), our Confirmation Program, our Sisterhood’s M.I.D. program, or any of the numerous adult studies opportunities we offer on a weekly basis, Adat Ari El is a bastion of learning and study to our community and a house of learning to each of us that partakes of it.
A house of assembly, our communal home. It has been a place to celebrate baby namings, Bar and Bat Mitzvahs, and weddings. It is a place where voices of disparate political views are heard and, needless to say, argued about and with. It is a place where people gather and organize to help one another in times of need, to support our brothers and sisters in Israel, and to help strangers in our greater community, Jewish and non-Jewish. It is a place of music, theatre, and dance. It is a place where lifelong friendships are made.
