Community and Friendship at
Temple Israel of New Rochelle

Temple Israel of New Rochelle is a community that adds meaning and purpose to modern lives through an inclusive approach to Judaism. This congregation lives their Jewish values in worship, celebration, lifelong learning and Tikkun Olam—the repair of the world.


Members and guests at Temple Israel of New Rochelle campus enjoy many Jewish experiences: prayers, lifecycle events, adult/youth education, brother-sisterhood/youth groups, community/social action, flexible dues model, free tickets to adult and family-oriented High Holy Days services, and much more. Your spiritual needs are served in community and friendship, welcoming you whole-heartedly: singles, families of many compositions, interfaith, LGBT, seniors, and people with disabilities. 


Their multi-faceted, inclusive Congregation, Religious School (Chavaya), Nursery/Pre-K (Kehillah School), and the summer Camp Pinebrook program, welcomes all through their doors and into their sanctuary, courtyard, gazebo, pool area, and play and explorative grounds for adults, teens, children, and infants, for worship, events, and all activities. Congregants are vibrantly active within their community and the community outside of their walls, where new friendships are made easily, and long-lasting relationships continue for many years.
