For over a century, our Congregation has been at the forefront of modern, progressive Reform Judaism. There are many facets to our uniqueness.
Temple Israel is a place of prayer and a place of education. But it is also a place of congregation - a "Bet K'nesset" - in many forms. Our members are attracted to Temple Israel from a wide geographic area throughout northwest Indiana and Chicago.
Members think of Temple Israel in terms of Community; a Jewish ethos, a Jewish extended home. The Temple Israel vision embraces all people in all circumstances. We are a congregation open to new ideas - flexible - inclusive.
Judaism is a "living religion" to be studied, discussed...to evolve as the world changes. Temple Israel is the home of our vibrant religion. Our egalitarian services are an example of this vibrancy. Hebrew and English are used interchangeably; tallit and kippot are worn... or not; prayers are sung in melodies as old as our faith, as new and fresh as tomorrow. Engaging and often humorous sermons are many times the start of discussions between congregants. Temple Israel captures the essence of Judaism, our "living religion"
