Adult Jewish Engagement

We are so excited to share the Fall 2022 Adult Jewish Engagement events. Temple Israel is a flourishing center of Jewish life: your home for community, learning, social justice, and engagement, both in our building and outside our walls. If you have any questions or want to learn more, don’t hesitate to reach out to either one of us. We look forward to seeing you often this fall!

Meet your TI family for the day in NYC to see critically acclaimed Leopoldstadt by Tom Stoppard.  Set in Vienna, the play takes its title from the Jewish quarter. This passionate drama of love and endurance begins in the last days of 1899 and follows one extended family deep into the heart of the 20th century.

After the play we will have the option to have dinner together at Lattanzi Cucina
