Fighting Fires in Israel
Communities and first responders throughout Israel are working to extinguish the devastating fires and rebuild. While they are receiving assistance from around the world, here are just two of many ways you can help.
SIDDUR LEV SHALEM DEDICATIONS
Temple Israel Center will be transitioning to the Conservative Movement’s new prayerbook, Siddur Lev Shalem. We are offering our congregants the opportunity to make personal dedications (in honor of and/or in memory of ...) for the siddurim. This is a beautiful way to remember, honor or recognize someone special by passing on the Jewish text from generation to generation.

Havurat Torah (7-12)
Teens in grades 7-12 continue their Jewish education in our high school program, HAVURAT TORAH, on Wednesday nights from 6:30-8:45 pm, and learn how the Jewish values they experience can inform the choices they make every day. Jewish learning becomes relevant and meaningful as our teens build life-long fnedships within a caring community.
