Worship outside with us all summer long! There is nothing quite like summer at Temple Israel. When weather permits, we hold services in our beautiful Harriett & Morton Freedman Outdoor Sanctuary for a wonderful Shabbat experience.

Live music and prayer lift our souls as we usher in the Sabbath Friday evenings with Shabbat Under the Stars and continue the celebration Saturday mornings with Boker Or and other special services.

With special themes, picnic dinners and musical guests, it’s no wonder we overflow the patio! Come early and bring your shades!
