Welcome to Temple Israel
Through a combination of award winning programming, enlightening worship, dynamic lectures, and exciting social events, members of the Temple Israel community join together in unique and wonderful ways. By emphasizing community, tradition, and Tikkun Olam, Temple Israel has created an atmosphere in which those of all ages can feel engaged and active, and where visitors and guests are always welcome.
We are a Traditional, Egalitarian congregation affiliated with The United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism.
The synagogue is a Beit Knesset (House of Assembly), a Beit Tefillah (House of Prayer) and a Beit Hamidrash (House of Study). The goal of our congregation, therefore, shall be to establish and maintain our synagogue through educational, religious, social and recreational activities which further the causes and objectives of Judaism, the Jewish people, and the State of Israel.
More than any other institution, the synagogue ensures the continuity of Judaism by facilitating the interaction of all generations and reinforcing the reality of the Jewish people as an extended family.
Therefore, among the activities which we must provide for our members are prayer services, celebration of Shabbat and Jewish holy days, study programs for both children and adults, life cycle ceremonies, the teaching of moral and ethical behavior based on biblical and rabbinic values, support for members in times of need, and concern for the larger community in which we live.
