Shabbat • שבת
Erev Shabbat services on Fridays and on the second and fourth Saturdays.
We are a Conservative Lay-Lead Jewish congregation located in the beautiful hills of San Luis Obispo. We encourage personal, spiritual and intellectual growh and take tremendous pride in our reputation as a warm and caring multi-generational family synagogue.
Typically on the third Friday of each month, we celebrate with a Community Vegetarian Potluck. We hope you will join us.
Meet Rabbi Chorny
Rabbi Daniel Chorny was raised in Bogotá, Colombia. He went on to complete his undergraduate education with distinction at the Pennsylvania State University, where he earned his B.S. in Business Management. He then completed a year of Torah Lishmah study at the Conservative Yeshiva in Jerusalem, where he met his wife, Hillary Chorny. While attending the Jewish Theological Seminary, where Rabbi Chorny received his rabbinic ordination and an M.A in Talmud and Rabbinics in 2014, he worked as a rabbinic intern at Congregation Etz Chaim of East Rockaway, NY. He also served as student rabbi at Jewish Senior Services of Fairfield, CT, and completed a unit of Clinical Pastoral Education with Metropolitan Jewish Health System Hospice and Palliative Care of New York, NY. Rabbi Chorny comes to us after serving as student rabbi at Congregation Sons of Israel in Amsterdam, NY. Currently, Rabbi Chorny teaches Mikraot Gedolot at the American Jewish University.
Life Cycle Events
At Temple Ner Shalom, we personalize moments of celebration and tragedy from the beginning of life to death. We celebrate together birth, b'nai mitzvah, weddings, while supporting each other during illness and loss. We pride ourselves on the care of our community, love and individual attention paid to each life cycle event.
Please contact the synagogue to arrange for a rabbi or lay leader to help you with your life cycle event needs. firstname.lastname@example.org

High Holy Days 2020
Temple Ner Shalom will be hosting daytime High Holy Days services for its members, led by our own Saeed Niku. We will be observing social distancing and employing Zoom, amplification and other protocols to ensure the safety of attendees. Erev Rosh Hashanah and Kol Nidre services will be by Zoom only and led by Rabbi Chorny. If you are a member, details will be provided in our Kolenu. You may pick up Makzorim from the Temple or by arrangements with Board members. If you are a visitor looking to attend local services, please contact me in advance at the number below. We have limited availability for day time services but we hope to be able to accommodate you. Access will be restricted to the site so it is important to notify us in advance of your desire to attend.
