About Us

Temple Beth Torah is a vibrant Reform Jewish Congregation located in the west-central Palm Beach County Village of Wellington.

We’re actively engaged in the lives of some 1,100 people – –  more than 100 young children in our accredited preschool, some 250 kids from kindergarten to grade 12 in our religious school programs, dozens of kids in our NFTY youth programs, and 750 adults that call this their spiritual home.  And we are active in our community and in the greater Jewish community of south Florida.

Our worship services and festival observances are filled with music and we try to make them inspiring, inclusive and invigorating. Friends of all ages will find a caring connection at Temple Beth Torah. We are a member of the Union for Reform Judaism – the synagogue arm of the Reform Movement – strengthening  900  congregations throughout North America.

On Fridays our Erev Shabbat worship service begins at 7:00 PM.  On Saturday mornings our lay-led Torah Study begins at 8:45 AM. Please check our calendar if there is a Shabbat Morning worship service, which would  begin at 10:00 AM.  We cordially invite you to join us.

We look forward to greeting you.  Shalom!

On behalf of our congregation, I welcome you to a wonderful place of Jewish worship, celebration, education and culture. Temple Beth Torah is the spiritual home for so many Jewish families and individuals living in and around the Wellington area. I trust that when you walk through our doors, you too will sense the warmth and energy that is a part of our kehilah kedushah ~ our sacred community.

We are committed to creating positive Jewish identities for our children, learning opportunities for our adults, and positive worship experiences for everyone. We are also committed to creating a community that is caring of one another, with an understanding that in times of sadness we need to be there with each other. We are proud that our congregational family includes men and women irrespective of age, marital or family status, faith tradition of origin, or financial means. We welcome all communities, including those with special needs, young professionals, and seniors. Interfaith families have a place with us as well.

In the words of the prophet Isaiah, “"My House shall be called a house of prayer for all peoples." (Isaiah 56:7)

L’shalom,

Rabbi Rosenkranz

 

Born and raised in Houston, Texas, Rachel expressed a love for singing and theatre from an early age. She received a Bachelor of Music in Vocal Performance from The Boston Conservatory and her ordination and master’s degree in Jewish Education from Hebrew College in June 2020. During that time, Hebrew College partnered with Temple Shir Tikva in Wayland, MA to offer her a fellowship investing in the next generation of Jewish educators. She was the High Holiday cantorial soloist at Temple Anshe Amunim in the Berkshires for three years. Meanwhile, she often participated in pastoral and pulpit duties at NewBridge on The Charles, a Hebrew SeniorLife community. In May 2020, Rachel presented a capstone recital exploring the Amidah blessings as exploratory songs from the heart. Over the course of the pandemic, she led online Shabbat and holiday services for communities around the country whose budget could not support a full time cantor.

Rachel lives in Delray Beach with her partner Jake, a marvelous tenor and cantor in Boca Raton. In her spare time, Rachel loves to make art, bake challah, and work out. Cantor Rachel cannot wait to get to know all of you. Please feel free to reach out to her!
