Welcome to The Village Temple
The Village Temple is a place for kesher – connection. Our downtown synagogue is a home for contemporary Reform Jews who are seeking connections to Torah and the search for spiritual fulfillment, links between past and present and one generation to the next, a bridge between the downtown Reform community with Israel and the world.
We invite all who wish to join us to enter our doors: Jews by birth, Jews by choice, interfaith families. Inside you will find a community of people who are on a quest to reinvigorate Shabbat, holiday worship and Jewish learning, and renew our commitment to tikkun olam through social action and justice.

The Social Action Committee is Here To Help, and Opportunities to Volunteer
Many people in our community are offering to help grocery shop for others for those who are unable to go outside in Manhattan. We will keep volunteers in their own locations. If you need help or if you can help shop please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will try to connect those in need with those that can help.
The Social Action Committee has put together a list of ways you can volunteer to help the community at this time. Please visit VT Opportunities to Volunteer to see how you can help.
