Temple Israel Welcomes You!
It is with immense pride that I represent Temple Israel as its current president, succeeding a lengthy history of those who paved the way for us to be here celebrating 106 years! I was born and raised in Gary and Temple Israel has always been a significant part of my life, celebrating many life cycle events at Temple and with my Temple family members. I am 3rd generation and our children are the 4th generation to be a part of Temple Israel.
We are a Temple with history and tradition, but very inviting and open to various ways of being Jewish and celebrating Judaism. Our members are diverse and our worship services reflect the many styles to be spiritual and pray finding peace within yourself while making the world a better place.
We are not the Temple we were 10, 20, or even 50 years ago, rather we use the past to look to our future. We are open to new ideas and encourage our member’s voices to be heard so we can each find a way to create a common bond within our different beliefs.
We invite you, your family and friends to come spend an evening with us. Services are held every Friday night at 7:30PM and an oneg (delicious foods) follows services. Our members are warm and welcoming and we look forward to meeting you!
Celebrating 106 years in the community!
Temple Israel President
