The founders of Temple Israel formed this Congregation based on a mission that included strengthening the Jewish community and assisting those in need in the community at large. We continue to uphold this mission as a Temple Family, by supporting programs, projects and services which adhere to this important mission. We provide meaningful community building and social action opportunities for adults, singles, teens, tweens and families with small children.

We always welcome new ideas, new members and new projects. For more information, please contact Social Action Committee Chair, Kim Shapiro, or Rabbi Jim Stoloff at 646-292-9485.
