  5. Temple brings the generations together in celebration, learning, and advocacy.

  10. We are leaders in our community and in the Jewish community.
  11. We offer thought-provoking, inspiring, informative programming.
  12. We don’t just talk the talk, we walk the walk; we are willing to say what we believe.
  13. Temple is a second "home" to many of us. We are a family of families.

  17. Temple meets people where they are in their Jewish journeys without an agenda or desired outcome.
  18. Post-b’nai mitzvah, our students build community through the 8th and 10th grade trips and both learn and “give back” from serving as madrichim to younger students.
