“Temple Israel is a welcoming and vibrant center of Jewish life for our region, l’dor vador... from generation to generation”
Temple Israel has served northeastern Minnesota for 120 years as a Jewish social, religious, cultural and educational center. Welcome. You are one of our distinguished visitors!
Our congregation includes people from traditional Jewish backgrounds, interfaith families, and people with little or no previous Jewish learning or experience. Our membership includes families, couples, and singles; children and elders; Jews by birth and Jews by choice (or still choosing). We value and seek to include everyone who shares our commitment to living and learning about compassionate, ethical Judaism regardless of age, marital status, income level, sexual orientation, gender identity, race or disability.
Temple Israel holds Shabbat services each Friday evening at 5:30 p.m. (the service is followed by an oneg/refreshment/social hour).The first Friday evening of each month is a family service and is followed by a dairy-veggie potluck Shabbat dinner. All ages are welcome to all services, though the monthly family service is especially geared towards families with young children. Shabbat morning services each week begin at 10:00 a.m. An interfaith Torah Study group meets at 9:15 a.m. each Saturday over coffee (and occasionally sweets) in the Community Hall prior to the 10:00 a.m. service.
