From Pre-K through Grade 12, we provide a strong grounding in Jewish ethics, history, texts, Hebrew, culture and ritual. We want our students to feel that Judaism is relevant to their lives, to understand how Jewish principles and belief in social justice can guide them in their relationships within their families, with friends, and with the wider world.
Contact Alex Tansky, Director of Education for more information about our outstanding Religious School program.
The Village Temple is more than a Synagogue - it's a community filled with kesher (connection). Whether you're a longtime member or a first-time visitor, we welcome you. Join us for our musical Friday night services or call the office to make an appointment with Rabbi Chava Koster to learn more about what makes the Village Temple special.More...
Come as you are. Discover who you are.
The Village Temple is a place for kesher – connection. It is a home for contemporary Reform Jews who are seeking connections to Torah and the search for spiritual fulfillment, links between past and present and one generation to the next, a bridge between the downtown Reform community with Israel and the world, and the balance between our daily lives and the “turn off your cellphone” respite of Shabbat.
We invite all who wish to join us to enter our doors: Jews by birth, Jews by choice, interfaith families. Inside you will find a community of people who are on a quest to reshape Shabbat and holiday worship, reinvigorate Jewish learning, and renew our commitment to tikkun olam through social action and justice.
