About Our Temple


Temple Israel, a place where you find something spiritual every day.

Temple Israel is a totally egalitarian conservative synagogue where tradition and change sit comfortably side by side. We are rooted in Jewish tradition but also progressive in outlook. We are family, and a strong sense of community has always characterized our congregational life. We seek to ensure that our children shall find a wellspring here from which they may draw inspiration in their lifetime and transmit that spirituality to the generations that will come after them.

Spirituality reaches out and hugs you as you walk through our doors. Educationally, Temple Israel is a center for lifelong Jewish learning offering a wide variety of opportunities to meet the diverse needs of the congregation. We believe in teaching and living tikkun olam, and we are an active force in community service initiatives. We believe in touching the life of every congregant, and all congregants, from infants to the elderly, are an integral component of our synagogue life.

Our Rabbi, Joshua Neely, ensures that everyone has the opportunity to find spirituality in his/her life. He is always available in person or by phone to assist & to counsel members of the congregation. (View Rabbi Joshua Neely’s You Tube Channel)

We invite you to visit our other web pages to meet our professionals, to find out more about us as a congregation, and to gather information about what’s happening programmatically at Temple Israel today and in the future. We are delighted you have come to visit.
