Temple Israel of Westport is celebrating its 70th anniversary this spring, culminating in a sparkling evening of celebration on May 18. 

Our congregation was founded by a handful of Jewish families who moved to the suburbs after WWII, and who sought an “opportunity for a religious education for their children” and “a Jewish dialogue among themselves.”  Over the decades Temple Israel has added to that foundation; vibrant worship, an emphasis on social justice, and commitment to the State of Israel while growing into the largest synagogue in Southern Connecticut.
