What we're about

Are you looking for a Jewish community that you can relate to? A community founded on the essential Jewish values of learning, kindness, charity and healing the world?

Then Temple Adath Or (TAO) is the congregation to explore. We are Jewish Renewal and we give you a warm, deep and authentic connection to all that is Divine and Godly in a congregation that is warm and welcoming. TAO has a diverse membership of men and women - singles and couples - young and old - gay and straight - a community waiting to welcome you home to a Judaism that makes sense - especially in this 21st century world.

Jewish Renewal brings Judaism alive with a living, breathing, Kabbalistic way of looking at Torah, Talmud, Midrash, liturgy and prayer that is relevant to this complicated, modern world in which personal connections are harder and harder to find and make. Jewish Renewal is not a static way of interpreting Judaism, but rather a journey to the joy, balance and harmony inherent in this ancient religious path. We tap into the wisdom of the sages so that we may apply their insights to our own life.


Our services and events are filled with music, singing, chanting, dancing and heartfelt prayer and meditation. While connect meaningfully, we also recognize that life must include FUN!

Join us for Shabbat services and Oneg Shabbat that follows on the first and third Friday of each month. We meet at Artserve (http://www.artserve.org/) on Sunrise Blvd in Ft Lauderdale. For more information, please check out our website, www.TAOCenter.net (http://www.TAOcenter.net) for updated list of services and events.

If you are new to the area, or looking for more meaningful relationship with God (however you see God to be) and Judaism, then TAO is a great place to start. Please feel free to email me at designingforlife@aol.com for any additional information.

Ruz Gulko BIO:
Ruz Gulko is a master educator, rabbi and chazzanit who has worked with most of the Jewish educational and religious institutions in the greater Seattle area since moving to Seattle in 1984. She has taught Judaic Studies and Hebrew at many different levels, and has worked training teachers, writing curricula, teaching in the general community and nationally.
In 2007, Ruz founded Gan Argaman, conducting from her home a Jewish educational lab and experimental school for students of all ages. Her student-centered, innovative approach to Jewish learning informs everything she does, with a particular passion for Torah’s radically humanistic & feminist message.
Ruz has also worked with Seattle Jewish Family Services, training clinical therapists in basic Judaism, and leading Rosh Chodesh ceremonies for survivors of domestic violence, and co-officiating at the Community Special Passover Seder.
She believes that if only people would sit down together and study Torah and eat chocolate, we could achieve world peace.
