While Temple Israel is the oldest Jewish institution of any kind in Palm Beach County, having celebrated our 90th anniversary during 2013, in many ways we are the newest considering our new pulpit leadership team, our newly-renovated home, and a new attitude towards growing our community!
For example, our lay leadership has adopted a brand new, affordable membership program aimed at folks under 45 (with membership being absolutely FREE for anyone under age 30), and a free year of membership for those with young children in our Religious School (please note that membership not required for our Religious School ... we just want our students to officially be part of our Temple Israel family).
Most importantly, though, we have renewed our commitment to never turning away anyone from Temple Israel for financial reasons … and, by this, we mean no one. You just need to talk to us and we can make membership comfortable for your individual situation.
Furthermore, while always honoring tradition, we are proud to say that we are working hard to become “The Place to Be for Reform Jews in the Palm Beaches.” As such, we are not a congregation “stuck in the past,” but rather are a committed group of people intent on trying “out of the box” ideas and being welcoming to new members and new ideas. So come check us out!
