Shabbat & Holidays

Celebrate the High Holy Days with Temple Israel

Click for information

Our worship services are inviting, fulfilling, comforting, joyous, and filled with music. We come from many places; our memories span the globe and many religious streams. We are creating Jewish experiences that embrace our heritage as they acknowledge the spiritual hunger and search for God in contemporary society. Come pray with us. Add to the sound of our voices. Together, we make a joyful noise.

At Temple Israel, we follow the tradition of Reform Judaism, observing all festivals. Our services are open to innovation and strike a harmonious chord with tradition. We hope our services reflect the joy that Judaism can bring to one’s life, and at the same time be an opportunity for self-reflection and reaching out to the community.
