We offer community-wide services, as well as services designed for young adults, for families, and for younger children. There is something for everyone!

Community-Wide Sanctuary Service

We return this year on Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur in mixed presence, onsite and online, where we can sing, rejoice, and pray as one sacred community. Both evening and morning Sanctuary worship services are a joyous combination of our majestic and contemporary styles. We are a vibrant tapestry of sweeping poetry and beautiful music, instruments and voices; we are both transcendent and immanent; we are Temple Israel; we are one. One service, offered twice.

Riverway Project Services for 20s and 30s

For those in their 20s or 30s looking for a dynamic, inclusive, uplifting way to begin the year, join The Riverway Project on Erev Rosh Hashanah and Kol Nidre as we welcome 5784 both onsite and online. As a community of young adults, we will pray and sing, making connections with our tradition and with each other as we move into a fresh new year together. Spread the word to any young adults in your life who might want to join us.

3rd – 7th Grade Family Experience

Kids in 3rd – 7th grade and their families are invited to join Temple Israel clergy and musicians for joyful, music-filled, and interactive services in celebration of the new year. If you are not able to join us onsite, there will be the option to livestream family services on Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur.

On Erev Rosh Hashanah, join us at 6:30 p.m. for a Family Shmooze with dinner to meet old friends and new. Then we will all participate in the Community-Wide Service, a meaningful and uplifting moment to kick off the High Holy Days all together.
