We are an Egalitarian and Progressive Jewish congregation in Scranton, Pennsylvania, serving the Pocono and Endless Mountan regions of Northeastern Pennsylvania, including Wyoming, Susquehanna, Sullivan, Bradford, Pike, Wayne, the North Pocono area of Monroe County, as well as our own Lackawanna County. We are a member congregation of the United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism. Temple Israel is a sanctuary for prayer and inspiration, a vibrant center for life-long Jewish learning, and a congregational home for the living Torah. We are a source of strength and a force for good in progressive Judaism, the greater community of Northeastern Pennsylvania, and the world
Our congregation could not function without members who are strongly committed to our shared Jewish heritage and values. It is only through our members’ participation that our Congregation continues to flourish. Join us for our twice daily Minyanim, Shabbat morning services, special events, Chags or for the High Holidays.
Whether you are new to the Northeastern Pennsylvania region, desirous of re-connecting to your Judaism, or interested in exploring the Jewish faith, you are most welcome at Temple Israel. Temple Israel is open and welcoming to all, regardless of race, gender or sexual orientation. At Temple Israel of Scranton, we are proud of our history and heritage, ever looking forward towards a bright future for us and our children. Welcome to our website and to the Temple Israel Family!
