Welcome to Temple Judea!

We are a unique, Reform, post-denominational congregation embracing seekers of spirituality, Torah, and the mitzvot of acts of loving kindness.

We are Reform because we guide you through the Jewish way of life, helping you to make informed choices grounded in the diversity of tradition.

We are post-denominational because we strive to make everyone who enters our doors feel welcomed and loved.

After 34 years, now Rabbi Emeritus, I know Temple Judea will be a special part of your life!  I hope you will take a minute to view my "REFLECTIONS ON TEMPLE JUDEA".  Click Here
