Happy Father's Day

    06.13.23 | Stories, Articles

    One of the most sacred commandments in Judaism is to honor our parents. And while this duty extends far beyond just one day a year, with Father's Day coming up this Sunday, it's the ideal time to give this commandment the consideration it deserves. 

    At Temple Judea, we see Father’s Day as an opportunity to celebrate and appreciate all the different forms of fatherhood that exist within our community. Whether you are a dad, grandfather, step-father, role model, father-figure, or simply a card-carrying member of the TJBrotherhood (Temple Judea's favorite dads!), your love and dedication deserve recognition and applause. It doesn't matter if you were born Jewish, non-Jewish, converted, or if you've got a kaleidoscope of traditions going on in your household. What matters is the love and laughs you bring to the table and the Jewish values with which you're raising those awesome kids.

    So, to all the dads and father-figures out there, whether you're sporting a kippah or a superhero cape (or both!), we see you, we appreciate you, and we're raising a toast to you. Keep doing what you're doing because you're making a real difference in our community. To anyone mourning those who filled this important role in your life, may their memory be a blessing to you and keep them alive in your heart. Happy Father's Day!
