By accident or by design, you have come upon the Temple Israel website. I hope this will be a fortuitous visit for you. If you are searching for Jewish life in Tallahassee, then you have absolutely come to the right place. In the corridor between Jacksonville and New Orleans, Temple Israel is the largest Jewish institution throughout South Georgia, South Alabama and South Mississippi. [TI Memphis is much larger and closer to North Miss. than we are.]
Our 360-plus families enjoy a vibrant Jewish life. We not only provide a fine religious education for Jewish children in our area, but we have a comprehensive program of adult Jewish education as well, with classes happening almost every week. We publish a weekly message that offers insights into the weekly Torah portion; we count the Omer with daily teachings during the period between Passover and Shavuot. In short, Torah pervades all that our congregation does. We have services every Friday night and Saturday morning, celebrate all of the Jewish holidays and even provide a morning minyan every Wednesday at 7:15 a.m.
If you are looking for a way to connect to Judaism, if you are searching for a Jewish spiritual home, if you are looking for a warm, embracing Jewish community, then please, stop by and introduce yourself to us.
