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.
