From staff reports

A Reform Jewish congregation that serves west Cobb, Acworth and surrounding communities is reaching out to those in Canton who would like to be a part of the growing group.

Members of Ner Tamid are conducting a short Shabbat service and a complimentary dinner Aug. 23 at 7 p.m. at Strattus Kitchen on Laurel Canyon Parkway in Canton.

Those who would like to attend are asked to contact Marci and Ernie Zied of Canton’s Soleil community, who are hosting the event in honor of their wedding anniversary at (770) 345-8687.

Congregation Ner Tamid, a member of Union for Reform Judaism, was formed in 2006 and conducts services, religious school and other events in various west Cobb locations. The congregation is moving from Marietta to Kennesaw in September.

“We are a small, tight-knit Reform congregation open to all, with a mixture of young and old families, including interfaith families, who come to us from south, north and west Cobb and surroundings and as far as Canton in northwest Georgia,” according to the church’s website. “We offer a warm, welcoming environment that feels like home, where people are genuinely interested in your well-being, where you can completely be yourself, where you find peace amongst your Ner Tamid ‘family.’”

Friday night and holiday services are now presented at the Christ Lutheran Church located at the intersection of Dallas Highway and West Sandtown Road at 176 W. Sandtown Road in Marietta.

Saturday morning services are held at various locations.

Rabbi Tom Liebschutz was ordained in 1965 from the Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion, the Reform Rabbinical Seminary in Cincinnati. For 30 years, he served as a rabbi occupying a number of pulpits, large and small, in places like Malden, Mass. and Tenafly, N.J.

Congregation Ner Tamid will celebrate the Jewish High Holy Days beginning Sept. 4 at Christ Lutheran Church.

Tickets, available to all, are $72 per person for all services. Call (678) 264-8575 for information.

Those who would like their children to attend Ner Tamid weekly Religious School classes, including Hebrew in the upper grades, confirmation and b’nai mitzvah to be held at Mountain View Prep in Acworth can email Principal Heidi Meyer at education@mynertamid.org or leave a message at (678) 264-8575.

Mountain View Prep is at 2320 Baker Road.
