“At the heart of Temple Israel is the search for true connection: to ourselves, to others, and to something bigger than ourselves. Now, more than ever, Temple Israel holds us in its heart. I am so grateful to “see” and hear our clergy, our teachers, our fellow members virtually and be uplifted together through creativity, optimism, energy and compassion.”

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.
