Your Jewish house of worship that truly feels like home… for affordable membership click here...

Imagine a Jewish house of worship that truly feels like home . . . this is Congregation Ner Tamid. We are a group of friends, but we are so much more. We are a family.

Twice a month, our family meets in Bradenton for a Friday night Kabbalat Shabbat worship service and for its innovative Shabbat At Table family dinner and short service. With the superb leadership of our Steering Committee and rabbinic associate, Rena Morano, and advice and counsel from Rabbi Barbara Aiello, we also celebrate all the major holidays from Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur to Hanukkah, from Tu B'shevat to Purim and Passover. We do this with meaningful participatory services combined with festive parties which all add up to a feeling of togetherness rarely experienced in synagogue life.

But that’s not all. Our family extends a helping hand into the community with volunteer projects that include work with migrant families, cancer patients, and homeless people, just to name a few. The Congregation Ner Tamid family makes regular contact with those who are ill and we bring Yiddishkeit to those who cannot leave their homes. They are our family, too.

Our younger family members attend our education program which is held twice a month.  In addition to projects relating to Jewish culture and tradition, our children can prepare to become Bar or Bat Mitzvah and have a whole lot of fun in the process. Then, after Bar and Bat Mitzvah (are you sitting?) our teens return!  The older members of our family can get an education too, ranging from adult Bar and Bat Mitzvah preparation, to Hebrew language classes, adult study groups in Jewish history, and conversion classes as well.
