About Us

Our congregation is YOUR congregation.
Please, make yourself at home at Temple Israel.  

Congregation Temple Israel is an inclusive community that supports your unique Jewish journey. We welcome those who were born into the faith and those who have chosen it; intergenerational families and individuals just joining; interfaith families; and people of any age, race, sexual orientation, gender identity, income level, ability, or cultural background. We are proud to be a diverse congregation — united by Judaism.

Here's what we believe:

Everyone who chooses to be in our sacred community has a valued role, and authentic, personal relationships are the basis of a caring community.

We are connected to one another, to Israel, to the traditions of our past, and to the generations yet to come.

A diverse, inclusive community creates Jewish vibrancy, and we respect where everyone is on their personal path.

A Jewish education should begin with our youngest children. Lifelong Jewish learning encourages us to live examined lives and wrestle with life's challenges, and Temple Israel is a place to explore difficult questions at any age.

Worship should be participatory, joyful, musical, and intergenerational.

Repair of the World
It is our responsibility to live Jewishly in ways that change the world for the better.

Being Reform Jews means valuing tradition as we constantly reexamine our faith and practice.



Our Temple is centrally located in the St. Louis suburb of Creve Coeur, Missouri. Our spacious grounds and facilities include a beautiful sanctuary and gathering spaces, an intimate chapel, a commercial kitchen, a newly renovated and state-of-the-art Education Center housing both our preschool and Religious & Hebrew School, two playgrounds, an in-ground swimming pool for our summer camp, and ample parking for the High Holy Days and year-round.

Whether your passion is Jewish learning, worship, music, social justice, fundraising or event planning, there are so many opportunities to get involved in a meaningful way in our Temple community. We encourage you to live your unique Jewish journey at Temple Israel!
