Today is October 20, 2016 -
We are an Egalitarian and Progressive Jewish congregation in Scranton, Pennsylvania, serving the Poconos and Endless Mountain 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.
A congregation cannot function without members who are strongly committed to our shared Jewish heritage. 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 or the high holidays.
Whether you are new to the NEPA region, desirous of re-connecting to your Judaism or interested in exploring the Jewish faith, you are most welcome at Temple Israel. Welcome to our website and to the Temple Israel Family!
