Temple Israel has been an integral part of Boston Jewish life for over 160 years. We are a warm, urban congregation where all are welcome to live Judaism through discovery, dynamic spirituality, and righteous impact.

Our Values


We build community and encounter the sacred through relationships.


We embrace Torah in all its dimensions as our enduring source for inquiry, discovery, and inspiration.


We explore spirituality and innovate our traditions of ritual and prayer.


We pursue justice, in partnership with others, to realize our vision of what the world ought to be.


We are Ohavei Yisrael, Lovers of Israel, committed to the vitality, peace, and well-being of the Jewish people in Israel and throughout the world.


We draw strength from our diversity, and wisdom from all who walk through our open doors.

Do you, or someone you know, need some extra support? Our clergy and our congregation are here to help in times of sorrow and to offer congratulations in times of joy.
