At The Temple, men and women are equal in all respects. Decency and trust are as important as any goal. We all share in leadership and responsibility. We are mindful of the community and the world around us. We reach out with our hearts and invite you to join us.
We reach out to help “heal the world” through community support activities including a High Holiday food drive to replenish local food pantries, our Room in the Inn Program for homeless women, our participation with Habitat for Humanity, and many other programs in order to fulfill this commitment.

Ways to Support Israel at this Critical Time
The support of the Jews of America is very important for Israel at this time. In addition to deaths and injuries, over a million Israelis have been displaced by Hezbollah rocket and missile attacks. We encourage you to donate to one or more of the Israel tzedakah projects listed bellow. In addition, contacting elected officials is also very important. Encourage them to remain strong in their support for Israel. Speak up on behalf of Israel with your friends and neighbors. Pray for Israel’s security and for peace.
