Rabbi Beyer encourages her congregation to learn and thus to practice Judaism in their lives as a product of their learning. Thus from learning comes observance with kavanah. She is also doing a great job of pulling the great Reno-Tahoe area together as one greater Jewish community rather than being members of diverse congregations.

I have been affiliated with TBOR for about a year. This is a wonderful, warm, welcoming group with a lot to offer. Rosh Hashonah services were interesting, musical, and inspiring.
