Welcome to the FUTURE home of Temple Israel!

Imagine yourself in our new building at 3100 East Broad Street. Visualize a life cycle event like a b’nai mitzvah, a wedding, a baby naming, a kindergarten consecration. Think about the warmth of a Shabbat service, the spirituality of a Jewish meditation session or the impact of an afternoon in the kitchen to make meals for the homeless. Hear an inspirational sermon given by our Rabbi. Listen to the voices of our Cantor and musicians as they uplift and inspire us with song. Picture your children and grandchildren reaching a milestone in their Jewish education. See in your mind’s eye the comfort of friends and fellow congregants as you say Kaddish for a loved one. Imagine an inspirational speaker who has come to Temple Israel to share their knowledge. What feelings does this bring up for you? How can you help ensure the synagogue remains a place of inspiration, education, consolation, learning and social justice for you and the people you love? 
 
Your participation in the capital campaign to renovate our new building at 3100 East Broad Street is essential to make all of these visions a reality for our congregation and for generations to come. 
 
Who and What Are Going to the New Building 
We will bring with us the passion and commitment of congregants who have been with us for many years, and newer members just starting to create memories with Temple Israel. 
 
We will bring with us the leadership of our Senior Rabbi, who along with our Cantor and Director of Education inspire us with their deep passions for learning, spirituality, social justice, education and music. 
 
We will bring with us our art and historical objects, representing the collective and individual memories of those who came before us and the legacy of our previous locations. 
 
And most significantly, we will bring YOU, as together we move into our future. Together, we will create a new story for Temple Israel on the shoulders of our storied past. 

At a time when synagogues across the country are experiencing declines in membership, Temple Israel’s membership is on the rise. New members are excited about our clergy, our programs and our values. Our members are from all age groups. They have various family structures. They come from Jewish and non-Jewish backgrounds. They are Jews of color and Jews by choice. Temple Israel will continue to reach out to individuals and families new to the community or new to synagogue affiliation and offer activities and programs to meet our members’ needs. From Tot Shabbat to the Empty Nester Havurah, from the TI Book Club to TI Seniors programs, from Tikkunapalooza  to learning from our fellow congregants as Scholars in Residence, there is something for everyone at Temple Israel! Our new building will give us the space to meet the needs and interests of our community.
