Our Temple Israel Family is comprised of our Professional Staff, Support Staff and about 500 member families. Our Professional Staff members include Rabbi Steven Moskowitz, Cantor Sara Hass, our Executive Director, Eric J. Shatzkin, and our Educator, Sharon Amster Brown.

A vibrant, active Reform Jewish congregation with programs that are both substantive and relevant for modern Jewish life. We wrestle daily with the meaning of life. We fulfill spiritual needs. We help intermarried families build Jewish lives.

We offer comprehensive Jewish education for children and adults. We are a center of social action -- and we're very sociable! We cherish the warm and caring people who make our congregation such a unique and close "family of families." This sense of Mishpacha pervades our services, our school, our study programs and our many special activities. We extend our hands in welcome and invite you to share our warmth and friendship. Our hope is that by becoming a part of our synagogue community, your life will be enriched.

We look forward to providing you with information about our Temple, our staff and our programs in the near future. If you have items you would like to see here, or have questions for us, feel free to email us at info@tilb.org
