Yom Sheini, 24 Shevat 5777

MaimonidesAt Temple Israel, we stand side by side with all of our families at important junctures in their lives. From triumphant moments like the birth of a child, bar or bat mitzvah, weddings and anniversaries to the difficult ones such as illness, hospitalization and death, the caring clergy and warm community of Temple Israel will be with you to celebrate and support your family.

Our congregation offers the full range of life cycle services and rituals, which include baby namings, brit milah (bris), consecration, b'nei mitzvah, confirmation, graduation, auf ruf (blessings for engaged couples), weddings, special anniversary blessings, funerals and shivah.

Whether in our sanctuary, a chapel, in your home or elsewhere, the clergy work with each family to make your milestone celebrations uniquely yours. We aim to make your occasions special for you, and to involve the members of your family in every way possible. The more the merrier!

In keeping with our Reform traditions, our life cycle rituals are a warm and welcoming embrace to all who participate.
