How often do you have services?

Erev Shabbat services begin at 6:30 p.m. every Friday evening. 

We worship on select Saturday mornings with a variety of special Shabbat activities including including Out-of-the-Box programs, Havdalah, Torah Study, introspective programs and B’nai Mitzvah celebrations.

How many members does Temple Israel have?

We currently have approximately 250 families.

What do I get for my membership dues?

On top of the regular benefits of membership such as High Holy Days tickets, members enjoy access to guest speakers, special programs and events, congregational dinners, discounted event fees and more.  Our Rabbi, staff and members will be there to support you through life’s challenges and joys.  You will also be supporting our synagogue and the great programs we offer.  Our members find they get back much more than they pay for.

President’s Circle

Created by Past President Zelda Mason in 1995, the President’s Circle at Temple Israel has a long tradition of philanthropy with its members going above and beyond their annual commitment.  Contributing significantly to the operating expenses of the synagogue, President’s Circle dues account for about 25% of our annual revenues and about 40% of our overall revenues.  Support from the President’s Circle allows us to offer dues adjustments to those who are unable to meet the annual financial commitment.

In joining the President’s Circle, there are several membership levels.  Dues are inclusive and not in addition to Temple members’ annual commitment.
