Welcome to the Temple of Israel

A warm, inviting congregation, we’re your place to worship, study, or to meet with friends!

The MISSION of the Temple of Israel is to be recognized as the spiritual, educational, ritual, and social center for Reform Judaism in the Greenville area; to perpetuate Reform Judaism and its principles of justice, compassion and righteousness; to cultivate an appreciation of the Jewish heritage; and to serve as a focus of dialogue between Reform Jews and other Jewish and non-Jewish local and world communities.

NEW REOPENING GUIDELINES - Effective July 29, 2021

Dear Temple of Israel Family: 

 The Temple Reopening Committee, as set up by the Temple Board of Directors, has been continuously monitoring the guidance from local, state, and national authorities, including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), regarding the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on all Temple operations. Because of the emergence of new strains of the virus and because cases of Covid-19 have been increasing in SC in recent weeks, the Reopening Committee is issuing new guidelines for the Temple so that we can remain open while prioritizing the safety of our members. These guidelines are consistent with the recommendations published on July 27, 2021 by the CDC and supersede earlier published guidelines, effective immediately. 

The major change in guidelines is that masks will now be required at the Temple for all indoor public gatherings, regardless of an individual’s vaccination status, in accordance with CDC guidelines. Masks will not be required for outdoor functions.  

 Thank you for your understanding and support. These guidelines will remain in effect until further notice from the Board of Directors. The Temple Reopening Committee will continue to monitor transmission  rates in the Upstate and will continuously revisit the guidelines to make sure that they are consistent  with CDC recommendations. 

Rabbi Samuel J Rose
