Welcome to Temple Judea or, as we commonly refer to it, TJ!

I have a vision for Temple Judea, and this vision is the reason I feel honored to serve this congregation. In my vision we transform lives, build a community and foster a commitment to Jewish life founded in the shared love of Judaism.

Together we do this through the study of Jewish texts, celebration of traditions and life-cycle events and by engaging in meaningful, joyous worship.

I hope you share this vision and will be inspired to be a part, or will become a part, of making it possible!
