Yom Rishon, 23 Shevat 5777

In May 2008, Temple Israel celebrated its Centennial with several events memorializing its rich history. A film entitled "The First Hundred Years: 1908 - 2008" was created and produced by congregant Rita Rosen, who funded the effort together with her husband Philip. It was released and shared with the congregation at the 2008 Temple gala, which was themed to honor our centennial milestone. A keepsake quilt, containing squares provided by member families, was created to document each family's experience at the Temple and to represent the interwoven community that forms our congregation. Photographs and memorabilia commemorating our first hundred years were displayed in our Gladys and Murray Goldstein Cultural Center. A tour was conducted at the Webster Avenue building, the first real home of our congregation. We look back with pride on our history and the impact that our congregation has had on the greater community. Temple Israel has been a beacon of light in the Reform Jewish world for 100 years and will continue its tradition of learning, compassion, and Tikkun Olam in the years to come.
