Rabbi's Message

At Temple Isaiah, we are blessed to be part of a dynamic, innovative and engaged congregation. At least five of our alumni have become rabbis, our programs are replicated throughout North America, and music written at Temple Isaiah is now part of the Reform movement liturgy. Even more significant, however, is Temple Isaiah’s unwavering commitment to Jewish living and Jewish values, which inspires and empowers us all to dream big, confront the issues of our day and do our part to make this world a better place.

In a rapidly changing Jewish world, however, we cannot take these accomplishments for granted. Over the past few years, we have come to recognize that our financial model is no longer viable. In order to meet the continuing needs of our congregation, we must start thinking differently about how we fund our beloved Temple.

Our leadership has wisely established a bold vision: “Securing Our Future: The Campaign for Temple Isaiah.” Individually and collectively we have the power to ensure that Temple Isaiah remains a strong, vibrant, welcoming and inclusive congregation.

I am asking you to support us in this essential and sacred endeavor. Please think about what Temple Isaiah means to you, how Temple Isaiah has made a difference in your life, and how this congregation has touched the lives of so many you know. With your support, I am confident that we can grow from strength to strength, from generation to generation.
