Our Mission: We will engage our community with a modern spiritual, educational and social Jewish experience that uplifts our lives.

Our Vision: To be an inclusive, connected and expanding Reform Jewish community.

Our Goals: Torah, Tzedakah, Tikun Olam 




The Jewish People have always associated the Torah with sweetness and we are continuing the tradition by creating a new tradition of our own: Chocolate Shabbat.​​

This is a multi-generational family service featuring our new kids’ choir, Kol Chokolad, and everyone is invited! Chocolate Shabbat starts with a free community dinner at 5:15 p.m. featuring Chef Hattam's world-famous macaroni and cheese, continues with Friday evening Shabbat service at 6 p.m., followed by a delicious chocolate oneg.

There will be chocolate-chip cookies, chocolate brownies, chocolate candies, chocolate, chocolate, chocolate! It is taught in Jewish tradition that Shabbat is a foretaste of the world to come. With Chocolate Shabbat, we’ll make that vision into a reality!

There is no cost for the dinner—it’s our clergy’s treat! We do need your reservation so we know how much macaroni and cheese to make. RSVP to Temple Israel, 402-556-6536, by Wednesday, April 18.
