A Welcoming Philosophy

The Temple Israel community is all inclusive and invites everyone to join us for services.

As a movement, the Union for Reform Judaism, of which Temple Israel is a member, prides itself on welcoming all Jews and the important people in their lives, regardless of their prior Jewish affiliation, their gender or sexual orientation, the faith of their extended family, or any disability. We work hard to be a community mindful of the idea that each and every individual is created in the image of God, and believe that welcoming all Jews and their families strengthens the Jewish people. We invite you to visit Temple Israel to experience our special Jewish community for yourself!

Temple Israel is a fully-inclusive congregation not only welcoming but also supporting, individuals from all backgrounds. We welcome children from interfaith families and encourage sensitivity from our entire community regarding those who support our Jewish children but choose not to become Jewish themselves. Additionally, Rabbi Salkin performs Jewish weddings for interfaith couples. Please contact him directly at RabbiSalkin@Temple-Israel.com or at (561) 833-8421.
