Welcome to New Toco Shul

NTS is an intellectually vibrant, family friendly Orthodox synagogue. We are founded on the ideas that every individual has unique abilities and perspectives, that we are obligated to share our talents with others, and that our community is strongest when our members contribute to its success and well-being. Our rabbinic and lay partners work together to provide a platform for sophisticated and nuanced Torah, reflective and meaningful Tefillah, and supportive and enriching Gemilut Chassadim.

Find us at 2003 Lavista Rd, Atlanta GA 30329.

From the Rabbi's Desk...

Dear Friends,

I want to express my appreciation to everyone in our community who made this Yom Tov a resounding success. Our cautious resumption of limited public prayer was both disciplined and inspiring. We have gotten a lot of positive feedback about this and also about the thoughtful KYA baskets that our members received. Whether you joined us in person or participated from home, it took many people to make this a reality.

This week, participants are reminded to register in advance for our outdoor Mincha-Maariv at 7:00 PM.  (You can register on this link.)  It is also our intention to add an early Mincha-Kabbalat Shabbat this Friday (7:00 PM) as well as an abbreviated Shabbat morning tefillah, with Torah reading, starting from Nishmat at 9:00 AM. We intend to conclude by 10:15 before it gets too hot! Social distancing and masks will be observed. Our services of up to twenty individuals are open to both men and women.

We are carefully considering when it will be safe and feasible to resume our weekday Shacharit service. Please respond to the following survey on this link so that we can gauge your availability. This is necessarily a slow process and it will be some time before we have resumed all our in-person programming.

In the meantime, please continue to attend our Zoom classes in Netivot Shalom, Contemporary Halacha and Rav Kook’s Guide for the Perplexed of our Generation. On June 9 at 8:30 PM, our own Dr. Alison Feit will offer another wonderful presentation on “Seizing the Moment: Anxiety and Self-Help in the Time of Corona.” No prerequisites necessary.

One more thing I cannot omit saying at least briefly. Our society is in turmoil now, not only from the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic but also from social unrest, recalcitrant racism and its deadly aftershocks. Whether you pray with a minyan or at home, please join us in praying for the peace and welfare of our country and all its inhabitants.
