Temple Israel Funds

Like many religious institutions and non-profit organizations, Temple Israel has numerous ways that you can help the Temple meet its daily and yearly operational expenses through specialized fundraising initiatives.  We sincerely appreciate the thoughtfulness of those who remember and honor their friends and loved ones through their generous contributions:
