Religion through the Arts
BHTOTA is not a mainstream Jewish movement; rather, BHTOTA is in the business of spirituality.The temple fuses religion with the arts, creating a truly unique and unforgettable experience for temple members.
At BHTOTA, we reach out to people of all backgrounds to share values that transcend religious and cultural boundaries. The African American community, for example, participates in the magical performances produced by Rabbi David Baron.
