ABOUT TEMPLE ISRAEL

Our Mission
Congregation Temple Israel is an inclusive community that supports your unique Jewish journey.

Our Core Beliefs
Community:  
We believe that everyone who chooses to be in our sacred community has a valued role.
We believe that authentic, personal relationships are the basis of a caring community.

Connection:
We believe that we are connected to one another, to Israel, to the traditions of our past, and to the generations yet to come.

Inclusion:
We believe that a diverse, inclusive community creates Jewish vibrancy, and we respect where everyone is on their personal path.

Learning:
We believe that a Jewish education should begin with our youngest children.
We believe that lifelong Jewish learning encourages us to live examined lives and wrestle with life's challenges, and that Temple Israel is a place to explore difficult questions at any age.

Worship:
We believe that worship should be participatory, joyful, musical, and intergenerational.

Repair of the World:
We believe that it is our responsibility to live Jewishly in ways that change the world for the better.

Change:
We believe that being Reform Jews means valuing tradition as we constantly reexamine our faith and practice.
