Temple Israel is operating in high gear to continue offering the many ways to participate and interact with fellow congregants of all ages for classes and gatherings. We are grateful for the record number of you who gathered with us online for our 5781 High Holy Day services. We hope that you witnessed firsthand, how our clergy, staff, and dedicated leaders were able to reimagine praying as a community, despite our physical separation It is because of your dedication to our mission of Living Judaism Together that our community is now wider, further reaching, and perhaps more tightly-knit than ever before.
It is though challenging times like these that we learn about ourselves and our community. We have seized this opportunity to build and strengthen relationships with one another, have worked to ensure that every member of our community feels welcome and cared for. Your support of the Friends Annual Fund is crucial to guaranteeing that our membership is accessible to all, and in keeping our doors (virtual or otherwise) open, no matter what. If you have donated to the Friends Annual Fund in the past, we are most grateful, and hope you’ll consider increasing your investment this year. If you have not previously donated to this effort, we ask that you consider joining us in investing in an even stronger Temple Israel.
