“There was an instant connection between Temple Israel and my family when it came to Jewish rituals, life, and services. Temple Israel is able to break down barriers to make Judaism tangible, meaningful, and personal for us. We love having a strong community to share in our joys and sorrows, and to help us develop a strong foundation of Jewish beliefs through the preschool, holiday events, and services.”

- Sara Golob Nelson

"We joined Temple for the Early Childhood Center, but it has become much more than just a preschool for our family. It has become a place that our daughter loves, and a place where we feel a deep sense of connection.”

- Denise and Jason Charnas
