Mission Statement

Temple Israel is a vibrant, egalitarian, Conservative Jewish congregation, striving to meet the spiritual, educational, life cycle and social needs of our diverse membership. Through fulfillment of mitzvot, we provide opportunities for meaningful living for our synagogue membership. Temple Israel exists to help its congregants and the surrounding area find greater meaning in life and build community. Our Shabbat and Holiday worship as well as our twice-daily religious services involve wide participation from our members. Under the leadership of Rabbi Panitz, Temple Israel welcomes and seeks to empower ever richer spiritual life.
