Welcome to Temple Israel...
Established in 1873 and a founding member of the Union for Reform Judaism (URJ), we are one of the oldest and most renowned congregations in the American Jewish experience.
Tu Bishvat to be observed Friday, January 30th
Tu Bishvat, also known as the New Year of the Trees, falls on the fifteenth day of the month of Shevat. Scholars believe that Tu Bishvat was originally an agricultural festival marking the emergence of spring.
In our own time, we celebrate the holiday by expressing our place in the order of nature. We consider our obligation to care for the environment and our responsibility for sharing the fruits of creation with all by responding to the call for social action.
Our Shabbat service on Friday, January 30, will be devoted to this responsibility and will be followed by a special Oneg reception featuring the symbolic fruits and nuts associated with this remarkable holiday.
