We wear our Blue Ribbons in solidarity for the safe return of all who have been taken hostage by the terrorist group Hamas. 

The Temple Concord Community has a personal connection two of the hostages, Dafna and Ela Elyakim. They are cousins of Dorit Zimmerman, who taught music and Hebrew in our Religious School.  These children were kidnapped by Hamas on October 7th and taken to Gaza.

 Access Codes
In order to continue our high level of security, certain group codes for the facility mag locks (glass doors) that were established many years ago, have been eliminated. (3636)
New codes have been issued for RS parents, teachers, and Torah Study attendees.
The mag lock code only allows entry into the foyer when the building is occupied, you cannot use it to enter the main building or mansion. 
If you require frequent access to the building and were using an old code that no longer works,  please contact me to so we can assess your needs and resolve the issue.
