Our Vision and Mission Statement

Temple Israel of Northern Westchester

Our Vision

To support the spiritual and religious journeys of our congregants and provide the foundation for building a better world through teaching and living our Jewish values.

Our Mission

We strengthen the connections of our congregants with Judaism in order to live meaningful and purposeful lives.

We provide an inclusive, warm and welcoming community.

We promote a sense of peace and unity within our community and beyond through acts of loving kindness and social justice.

 

Our Journey

Temple Israel exists to support the spiritual and religious journeys of our congregants at all ages.  Our diverse membership encompasses a wide range of Jewish belief, practices and backgrounds.  Yet, congregants seek a common and shared spiritual bond with Judaism.  Since its inception, Temple Israel continues on a spiritual path reflecting the enduring traditions of Judaism, while serving the current needs of our members.

Connections

Temple Israel exists to strengthen the connections of our congregants with the higher purposes of Judaism, our sacred celebrations, the study of Torah, and Jewish learning.  It fosters connections to those within our temple community, outside of our temple community, and to the memories of those who have come before us. 

Community

Temple Israel exists to provide an inclusive, warm and welcoming community for our congregants and our CJL students at all grade levels.  Members are available to one another, are willing to listen, to discuss, to be flexible, accepting and supportive.  Children and adult members alike reach out to those in need within our community, and beyond our community, with acts of loving kindness and social justice programs to repair our corner of the world. 

Harmony

Temple Israel exists to promote a sense of peace and unity, bringing together many elements of Temple life – the glow of our Sanctuary at services and on High Holidays, the inspiring words of our Rabbi, the beauty of our Cantor’s voice, the harmony of our adult and youth choirs and bands, the sorrow and the laughter, and many times something good to eat.   The harmony inside is embraced by the natural beauty of the Temple’s setting outside.
