Join the Temple Israel family!

Many people join a temple for a sense of community, a connection with like-minded people, learning opportunities, and spiritual expression. You’ll find that and more at Temple Israel of Greater Miami. Perhaps you already enjoy or are interested in sampling more of the varied opportunities the temple has to offer, including Shabbat and holiday worship services, adult learning, special events and series featuring guest artists and speakers, intergenerational programs, social justice projects, and groups that cater to our diverse temple family, from teens to baby boomers to LGBT members. You have decided you want to be a part of our spirited, progressive community. Now what?

Temple Israel of Greater Miami and Membership Financial Commitments

Money is not at the heart of what we do at Temple Israel. The heart of what we do is Torah, Avodah, and G’milut Hasadim–Torah, worship, and deeds of loving kindness. But money is required for us to do what we do. We have created a variety of membership financial categories that reflect our community’s diversity. At Temple Israel of Greater Miami, no one is turned away because of an inability to pay. During the application process, we welcome you to speak with us in confidence about your financial status.
