Baruch Haba! Welcome!
We are a small, welcoming community that provides varied programming and activities allowing for much opportunity to participate and get involved. Temple Israel of Alameda has services every Friday night and special family programing throughout the year that fosters a love for Jewish learning and play.
Participation and commitment, above all things, have sustained our Jewish heritage for almost 6,000 years. Temple Israel of Alameda continues that chain of tradition in our support for each other through our commitment to worship, study and Tikkun Olam (making the world a better place).
Please join us and become part of your local Jewish Temple!
Our Roots Are Deep and Long
Our congregation is the historic and contemporary Jewish community in Alameda, founded in 1920 and serving our 130 member families with strong programs, celebrations, observances and services to grow our bonds with Judaism and each other. Temple Israel is a member of the Union of Reform Judaism.
Becoming a Member
Membership in Temple Israel involves making an annual pledge at the beginning of each fiscal year. Everyone is asked to consider what they can contribute in order for our temple to be the community we all are striving to build and maintain.
Though the cost to sustain the valued work of the Temple is $285 per family per month, our payment schedule is flexible. And, every pledge is valued, regardless of amount. Temple Israel takes pride in turning no adult away from membership or child away from Jewish education. If you are unable to meet the minimum, our finance committee will work with you in an entirely confidential way to accommodate your support.
