Mission, Vision, & Values


The purpose of the Temple of Israel (TOI) is to provide a meaningful and fulfilling environment for worship, education, and social interaction, following the principles and values of Reform Judaism, including commitment to God, Torah, and Israel; and to enhance the lives of our congregants and our community.  


As an inspiring center for Reform Judaism, TOI will provide meaningful experiences, where memories will take root and grow, while honoring the past and building for the future.

TOI aims to be a warm, welcoming, multi-generational, and inclusive congregation, financially sound, with a committed and growing membership base and religious school.

TOI will be the focal point in our community for Reform Jewish worshiping education, social interaction, and Tikkun Olam.


We are a warm, welcoming, and inclusive congregation:

  • We reach out and encourage interfaith families to embrace Judaism and become active members of our congregation. 
  • We believe in equality within our congregation regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, and/or financial means. 
  • We embrace a multi-generational congregation as both a connection to our past and a bridge to our future. 

We foster a sense of connectedness and goodwill within our Jewish and general communities through charitable acts, advocacy, and community outreach.
