A Warm Welcome from the Temple Israel Family

Temple Israel is the spiritual home to 150 families. We are a strong and diverse congregation and think of ourselves as a large family and a place people comfortably call their “home away from home.”

We seek to enrich the lives of our members through ever-evolving ideals of observance, life-long learning, prayer, and acts of justice and loving-kindness from one generation to the next. We seek to encourage involvement and create a sense of belonging by serving our community, and the Jewish people

We are a congregation whose approach to Judaism takes both tradition and the modern world seriously. We practice a Judaism that is enduring, yet relevant, intellectually and spiritually satisfying, and enjoyable. We believe strongly in the value of lifelong Jewish learning and offer an array of classes and programs for every age. We are a community of communities and welcome participation in our Sisterhood, Men’s Club, Religious School, Mitzvah Committee, Special Events, Robert H. Spitz Community Dinners, and much more.

We hope you will join us at Temple Israel and we invite you to come and actively enjoy all that we have to offer.
