Welcome to The Village Temple

The Village Temple is a place for kesher – connection.  It 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.

Religious School Registration is Open!

Our innovative education program aims to instill in our children a lifelong commitment to Jewish learning, culture and community. In our experiential and flexible camp-inspired and fun Religious School, we engage our students through stories and songs, Hebrew prayers and music, educational and fun games, art and cooking. The Village Temple is known for our excellent Bar/Bat Mitzvah preparation, which enables each student to experience Jewish learning and life in a personal, meaningful way, as a unique educational journey through Torah, ethics, ritual, and the state of Israel.

We offer pick-up services from PS 11 and PS 41. Call or email Alex Tansky for more information and to sign up.
