“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.”
