MekorShalomLogoIf holiday shopping begins with Thanksgiving, shul shopping, or synagogue shopping, begins in the spring. Now is the time in Tampa when Jews begin to look for a synagogue to which to belong. They often seek a spiritual home that is akin to a favorite vacation destination.

“Everybody wants to enjoy the time they spend away from the routine of daily life, and the synagogue can provide that kind of experience right here in town,” explains Hazzan Jodi Sered-Lever, the founding spiritual leader of Congregation Mekor Shalom in Carrollwood, which is a Conservative congregation. “Just as someone eagerly anticipates going on vacation, if the synagogue meets people where they are at, folks can be just as excited about connecting with other Jews in a nurturing, calm, and engaging spiritual community.” 

It’s with that in mind that Mekor Shalom has put together the top 5 reasons to check out Mekor Shalom in Tampa as a next synagogue destination:

1. You matter at Mekor Shalom. Tampa Bay’s newest synagogue located in Carrollwood believes that each person’s presence makes a difference in this sacred community of sacred relationships.
