Social Justice is essential to the life of this congregation. Temple Israel has a long history of raising our voices to protect the dignity and human rights of all people. Whether it is a local, national or international issue, we find ways to get involved and fulfill our obligation to repair the world through mitzvot, education and advocacy.


  • Perform mitzvot through social action projects, including partnering with inner city elementary schools, working with the homeless and elderly, and lending our hands for housing.
  • Host educational forums with speakers from near and far who engage us in discussions of issues of the day.
  • Take a stand, together, for civil rights, public education, justice and children’s well-being.


Pick ONE FRIDAY THIS FALL to visit our members at the Rose Blumkin Home.
