Read what some of our members
have to say about Temple Israel Center:





Shorashim Religious School"The Religious School provided us with a deep connection to the Jewish calendar and liturgy, drawing us into our kids' active learning and the kehillah beyond. Now there is so much about TIC we love!"

- Chari G.

Kiddush 2


"We visited a lot of area synagogues. At TIC, Rabbi Tucker gave a Shabbat sermon that transformed my perspective and truly comforted me. Afterwards I felt an immediate connection to others who were so welcoming at Kiddush. Here was a Jewish home for us!" 

- Art K.

Randi K.


"I was 33 when my mom died. I will never forget being in the small chapel at the TIC daily minyan with people who gave me such warm smiles and soothing looks, as if they knew me. I felt like I was not alone that whole first year. I was truly embraced by the community at TIC."  

- Randi K.



"At orientation, a woman standing in the nursery school hallway noticed my hesitation and pointed the way. She took me under her wing, inviting me to Shabbat services, and events for young families. Since then, our life has become centered on TIC in an unexpectedly rich way".

- Joan S.


Mah Jong


"TIC has so much to offer! I enjoy the Rabbi's Mishnah class, and my wife, the Mah Jong group, and Saturday night Havdalah services have become a special part of our week. Two years into our membership, we feel so fortunate to have found TIC."  

- Helene B. and Jonathan S.

Adult Bat Mitzvah Class


"The process of becoming an Adult Bat Mitzvah was not only transformational for me, but bonded me in a unique way to the shul. Building relationships in a vibrant and diverse Jewish community is what is special to me about TIC."  

- Greta R.
