Our Mission

The mission of the Goodman Family Judaic & Archival Museum at Temple Israel is to preserve our cherished heritage. The Temple Israel Museum & Fine Arts Committee supports the Museum as a way to enrich the lives of our Temple families.

Thanks to funding provided by the Goodman Family Judaica Museum Fund, we’re able to collect, preserve and exhibit articles from antiquity to modern times that represent the historical, artistic and cultural development of the Jewish people.

Our Collections

Our lovingly collected artifacts demonstrate how Jewish art is firmly rooted to ritual and bound to spiritual life.
